Future Trends in Technology and Education

Future Trends in Technology and Education | Open Research & Learning | Scoop.it

"Future Trends in Technology and Education is a monthly report. It surveys recent developments in how education is changing, primarily under the impact of digital technologies. Its purpose is to help educators, policy-makers, and the public think about the future of teaching, learning, research, and institutions.

 

Every month FTTE aggregates recent developments, checking them against previously-identified trendlines. As certain trends build in support and significance, the report recommends watching them for future impact. FTTE also notes trends which appear to be declining in significance."

ghbrett's insight:

Bryan Alexander is not only one of the leading Thought Leaders of Technology for Education, Training, and Research; he is one of the most scholarly, well grounded, sharing people I know. His work is based on fact with a dab of opinion from others as well as himself. His eyes, ears, and haptic senses are sensitive to opportunities and trends. Bryan's voice asks the difficult but important questions. Then his synthesis of this input is shared openly with us. He is an essential part of the future. That is why you should quickly take advantage of his offer to share his new monthly report "Future Trends in Technology and Education."

OpenStack Open Source Cloud Computing Software | Open Research & Learning | Scoop.it

"OpenStack OpenStack is a global collaboration of developers and cloud computing technologists producing the ubiquitous open source cloud computing platform for public and private clouds. The project aims to deliver solutions for all types of clouds by being simple to implement, massively scalable, and feature rich. The technology consists of a series of interrelated projects delivering various components for a cloud infrastructure solution." from source: http://www.openstack.org/

ghbrett's insight:

While MOOCs are a major topic these days. Big Data is near the top of the "What's Hot This Year" list for academia, research, government and business. OpenStack is  a solution from NASA and RackSpace to create an open source solution for many types of clouds to provide interoperability of search, retrieve, data, and content across differing cloud platforms or instances.
