Jim Knight - If Steve Jobs Designed Schools - Learning Without Frontiers on Blip

What if Steve Jobs had re-invented the education system rather the computer and consumer electronics industry? Steve Jobs was a contradictory character, combining control freak and Zen Buddhist, and technology with design.

Mark Monsen's curator insight, May 6, 2015 12:34 AM

Very informative

David Prince's curator insight, May 27, 2015 1:06 AM

A very powerful insight to where classrooms are heading with Technology. I like to acronym SoLoMo meaning Social, Location, Mobile. As technology is transforming our lives it is clear that it is also assisting the transformative ideas within classroom teaching. Troy Williams clearly addresses the ideas that teachers in the near future have to adapt and engage students with up to date practices, like using mobile phones within classrooms.   

Kaylah Fox's curator insight, June 3, 2015 10:11 PM

This is a great piece on the necessity of using resources that students are familiar and comfortable with to further their learn in a contemporary classroom environment. Rather than finding new technologies daunting they can be liberating.
