It's time we turned social networks into real communities

But what kind of countries would these be? In Facebookland, the authorities choose what news you see and suppress updates they consider to be unsuitable. They encourage you to report fellow citizens whose behaviour offends you; the statute book is vague about what constitutes an offence and the sanctions meted out seem arbitrary and draconian. Summary exile is common.

It sounds like a police state.

Why Technology Alone Won't Fix Schools

Why Technology Alone Won't Fix Schools | Research_topic | Scoop.it
technology amplifies the children’s propensities. To be sure, children have a natural desire to learn and play and grow. But they also have a natural desire to distract themselves with Angry Birds. Digital technology amplifies both of these appetites.
Artur Coelho's insight:

yep: "technology amplifies the children’s propensities. To be sure, children have a natural desire to learn and play and grow. But they also have a natural desire to distract themselves with Angry Birds. Digital technology amplifies both of these appetites." bate certo com a minha experiência. deixem-nos à solta e sai uma revoada de redes sociais e jogos online. desafiem-nos, com projectos concretos, e eles surpreendem pelo que conseguem atingir.

Lego Worlds is basically Minecraft but with those plastic bricks we love

Lego Worlds is basically Minecraft but with those plastic bricks we love | Research_topic | Scoop.it
With Lego already making loads of official Minecraft playsets, you’d think the company would avoid stepping on the insanely popular building game’s toes. But apparently that’s not the case, because today Lego Worlds was officially announced, and the only real difference between playing it and Minecraft is that you get to build with actual Lego pieces. So long, Minecraft.
