New book examines higher education through the lens of the zombie apocalypse | Inside Higher Ed | Scholarship in the digital age | Scoop.it

It may sound like a joke to say that higher education has been the site of a zombie apocalypse, but Andrew Whelan, Ruth Walker and Christopher Moore aren't just kidding around.

drula eric's curator insight, May 3, 1:02 AM
Peu de domaines dans les affaires et dans la société qui n'a pas été affectées par la révolution des médias sociaux, même comme il a commencé il y a moins d'une décennie. De nombreuses entreprises ont réagi à cette nouvelle situation, en prenant la pleine mesure de la force et le potentiel que ces technologies représentent pour leur organisation ainsi, les wikis permettent une collaboration virtuelle plus efficace dans des projets transversaux; blogs internes, forums de discussion et des chaînes YouTube promouvoir les échanges avec le partage à la fois la connaissance comme un aperçu de chacun; campagnes virales sophistiquées possibles pour engager la relation client et la fidélité; prochaine génération de produits co-développé grâce à des processus d'innovation ouverte; et enfin les dirigeants travaillant pour définir leur stratégie d'entreprise

Potential Power of Blogging for Pedagogy

Potential Power of Blogging for Pedagogy | Scholarship in the digital age | Scoop.it
I believe in the potential power of blogging. I believe it can be harnessed to be a powerful pedagogical tool in the 21st Century.

 

4 Benefits of Integrating Blogging into Pedagogy

1. Blogs promote participation and collaboration of knowledge and skills. There are a myriad of resources available on the internet that can help students become creators, and not merely consumers of different texts and bodies of knowledge.

 

2. Blogs promote global communication and collaboration. Teachers can facilitate interactions with diverse cultures, ethnicities, and religions, and social contexts. Students can be helped to challenging their thinking by considering other viewpoints.

 

3. Blogs promote the critical analysis of pedagogy and literacies.

 

4. Blogs create the potential for interactive spaces for authentic exchanges. Strategies including reading logs, book reviews, parental communication, encouraging reading and writing and responding around a particular theme or focus.

If we can harness this power, we have a strong pedagogical tool on our hands. As with other areas in education, we can begin to harness this power by asking ourselves the right kinds of questions that can bring about the results we want to see.

How to optimise your brain's waste disposal system

The human brain can be compared to something like a big, bustling city. It has workers, the neurons and glial cells which co-operate with each other to process information; it has offices, the clusters of cells that work together to achieve specific tasks; it has highways, the fibre bundles that transfer information across long distances; and it has centralised hubs, the densely interconnected nodes that integrate information from its distributed networks.

Like any big city, the brain also produces large amounts of waste products, which have to be cleared away so that they do not clog up its delicate moving parts. Until very recently, though, we knew very little about how this happens. The brain’s waste disposal system has now been identified. We now know that it operates while we sleep at night, just like the waste collectors in most big cities, and the latest research suggests that certain sleeping positions might make it more efficient.
