Innovation Excellence | Eight I’s of Infinite Innovation – Revisited | Professional Communication | Scoop.it
Some authors talk about successful innovation being the sum of idea plus execution, others talk about the importance of insight and its role in driving the creation of ideas that will be meaningful to customers, and even fewer about the role of inspiration in uncovering potential insight. But innovation is all about value and each of the definitions, frameworks, and models out there and only tell part of the story of successful innovation.

Why Makerspaces are Changing the World - Medium

Why Makerspaces are Changing the World - Medium | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

"The real impact of makerspaces is long term and hard to grade. These spaces enable experiences that over time can significantly strengthen self-efficacy, eliminate learned helplessness, and build an internal locus of control.

 

In makerspaces I’ve seen students teach their teachers about new technologies. I’ve seen 1st graders intuit the existence of cartesian coordinate systems just by observing 3D printers move. I’ve seen kids shout “YOU JUST DISCOVERED SOMETHING!” at classmates wearing ear-to-ear smiles. Teams of runny nosed kindergarteners are crafting Mars rovers out of chopsticks and 5th graders have built freaking 3D printed prosthetic hands before my eyes."

The 13 most innovative schools in the world

The 13 most innovative schools in the world | Professional Communication | Scoop.it

Innovation in education can look like lots of things, like incorporating new technology or teaching methods, going on field trips, rejecting social norms, partnering with the local community. It can be a floating school in an impoverished region, like the one in Lagos, Nigeria. Or it can be a school that's blind to gender, like Egalia, in Stockholm, Sweden.

Luego de una irrupción muy fuerte del internet y del mundo digital en nuestra vidas aparece el "maker movement" como una nueva tendencia social que pretende construir ese puente entre el mundo real y el digital (internet de las cosas). No se trata de la reminiscencia de la era del hobbista, se trata de un proceso mucho más complejo donde las nuevas tecnologías, el diseño, la programación, la electrónica confluyen en un sólo espacio para interactuar con el entorno de una manera nunca antes vista.
