The Brainstorming Guide for the Developing World: CAT The Frog Open-Source Guide To Design Thinking via @jjameson

The Brainstorming Guide for the Developing World: CAT The Frog Open-Source Guide To Design Thinking via @jjameson | pedagogy trumps tech every time | Scoop.it

 

Robin Good: The Collective Action Toolkit is a downloadable PDF guide, that has been designed to help individuals living in third world communities, where it is much more difficult to form spontaneous groups that tackle specific problems, to learn techniques and methods that can aid them to get together and take action on specific issues.

 

"Want to figure out a way to help people in your community eat healthier? Have an idea for a small business?"

 

"This 72-page booklet that seeks to develop a universal framework for people of all ages and cultural backgrounds to tackle big problems in their communities.

 

Developed over the past year, the CAT contains nary a mention of design (or brainstorming). Instead, it relies on a simple vocabulary to describe skills like building a team, carrying out research, and developing solutions."

The CAT manual provides a number of illustrated templates, examples and tips to get any collaborative action idea off the ground.

Digital Curation Resource Guide

Digital Curation Resource Guide | pedagogy trumps tech every time | Scoop.it

Digital curation involves selection and appraisal by creators and archivists; evolving provision of intellectual access; redundant storage; data transformations; and, for some materials, a commitment to long-term preservation. Digital curation is stewardship that provides for the reproducibility and re-use of authentic digital data and other digital assets. Development of trustworthy and durable digital repositories; principles of sound metadata creation and capture; use of open standards for file formats and data encoding; and the promotion of information management literacy are all essential to the longevity of digital resources and the success of curation efforts.

Philips to Launch App Controlled LED Light Bulbs at Apple Stores on Tuesday | MacTrast | pedagogy trumps tech every time | Scoop.it
Philips announced today that it will be launching Philips hue, “the world’s smartest LED bulb” exclusively at Apple stores starting on Tuesday.
Not an educational technology (though wouldn't it be great to have this in the classroom!) yet it I think it's giving us a hint about the way people want to interact with their devices: simple, fun, creative, personal, everyday.
Is our edtech like that?

Money doesn't necessarily follow good ideas. I mean no judgment of MOOCs. I am curious: are MOOCs a key part of future learning or the current flavor of the week? In any case I'm glad to see the money is there so we can see these ideas mature and so make. Decent evaluation.

I like that we're seeing more stories, like this one, taking a sober critical look at emerging ideas in education. It shows we're maturing, moving out of the early adoption/infatuation phase

A balanced look at a complex idea. In it's rush to solve its problems, educaiton has only a thin purchase on the idea of the flipped classroom.

The truly networked world we still can’t quite grasp | Social Enterprise Today | pedagogy trumps tech every time | Scoop.it

I think this is a central issue for education's renaissance: we haven't yet fully grapsed what we're dealing with. This makes our time very similar to the early Renaissance when things were breaking down faster than we could find ways to replace them

Technology for Creating Interactive and Dynamic Data Visualization

Technology for Creating Interactive and Dynamic Data Visualization | pedagogy trumps tech every time | Scoop.it

Here are libraries for plotting data on maps, frameworks for creating charts, graphs and diagrams and tools to simplify the handling of data.

Even if you’re not into programming, you’ll find applications that can be used without writing one single line of code. Many of these tools are relatively simple to use, and others are more advanced. . .

 

There is something about visualizing data--in the way Hans Rosling first got us all excited about--that does make a pedagogical difference at two levels. The simplest is in consuming the visualized data, an act that alllows us to see better what the data tells us, or even se what we couldn't otherwise see. The more complex application is in creting the visualization, an act that calls on very high order thinking and, even if we are not sure just what the data may be telling us, an intuition that something important is hidden in there.

Rheingold's commnets are important if only becausehe is taking us beyond talk about the technology itself, which is comparatively uninteresting, to the talk about how that technology might reshape us. His references are to Illich's excellent little book, Tools for Conviviality, but there are storng echoes of McLuhan, too
