Here is another great example of students curating, and the ownership of the learning shifting to the students as a result.

Anu Ojaranta's curator insight, December 27, 2013 3:22 AM

This has also been shown in other studies. The students manage better text and performance if writing to open Wikipedia instead of school's own wiki.

This post discusses five games that help student develop critical thinking skills and to build good arguments. The games are:
* Quandary - This game has you develop a colony in outer space. Students need to help settle disputes and solve problems.
* Citizen Science - Another game that requires you to use persuasive skills to help solve problems but these problems are related to science.
* Argument Wars -This game is part of iCivics. Students "use their persuasive abilities by arguing a real Supreme Court case". This site provides resources including lesson plans and worksheets as well as a teacher's guide.

* The Republia Times - A game that typically takes 10 minutes or so, the student becomes the editor of a paper and has to curate the front page.

* Papers, Please - In this game the student is an immigration officer in a ficticious country and must make decisions based on evidential arguments presented.

More information on each game is available in the post as well as links to each.

While technology changes quickly, new avenues open all the time for learning and education.

Our economy changes as well, from a world of manufacturing and fulfilling basic needs, to  highly specialized products and services created in quickly evolving technology and social media.

Startups are becoming an economic model that allow new ideas to develop and being injected into mainstream business.

The way we educate ourselves and our children changes thoroughly. Almost from the day our children are born they get very different toys than we did. They learn how to think in new ways.

Games  better teach us some great skills. This is a great article. Good to see how education evolves with technology.

Three Social Trends That Will Influence Education in 2014

Three Social Trends That Will Influence Education in 2014 | Pedagogy | Scoop.it

There are patterns within the trend predictions for 2014 that are worthy of paying attention to. There is strong, if not overwhelming evidence that behaviour patterns of students, educators, employees and professionals are moving towards the use of social tools for learning, working and teaching. Collaborating seamlessly face-to-face and at a distance, bringing the human element to virtual interactions, and personalized learning will prevail in 2014; each facilitated by technology. But it’s not going to be about the technology, it will be about making connections by voice and/or visual, contributing to new knowledge, and learning with and from others—all mediated through social media. It will be the behaviours of students, lifelong learners and educators—their use of technology, specifically social media applications that will influence education in the upcoming year.

Conclusion
Though we can predict and make an educated guess what the year 2014 will hold for education, we won’t really know until we are in it—knee deep. The year 2012 named by the New York Times as the Year-of-the-MOOC, shook the foundations of education, and no one saw it coming. Will social media influence education by increasing collaboration, humanize the learning experience, and support personalized learning in 2014? Time will tell.

Academics. Most of our current school system revolves around it, and yet, I think it falls miserably short of what our kids need. To be honest, I think our academic system of education is highly overrated, at best.
