Human extinction warning from Oxford

Human extinction warning from Oxford | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

What are the greatest global threats to humanity? Are we on the verge of our own unexpected extinction?

An international team of scientists, mathematicians and philosophers at Oxford University's Future of Humanity Institute is investigating the biggest dangers.

And they argue in a research paper, Existential Risk as a Global Priority, that international policymakers must pay serious attention to the reality of species-obliterating risks.

Last year there were more academic papers published on snowboarding than human extinction.

The Swedish-born director of the institute, Nick Bostrom, says the stakes couldn't be higher. If we get it wrong, this could be humanity's final century.

How Tech Is Changing the Museum Experience

How Tech Is Changing the Museum Experience | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

"I would be interested to see how this can be used to help libraries, as well."

 

Quote from article:

"Museums are exploring digital and mobile technologies to enhance visitor experience. Initiatives go beyond technology within exhibits and installations, but also include more pervasive uses of tech to create interactive experiences for visitors throughout a museum, as well as remote experiences for those who cannot get there.Here, we highlight what three museums are doing to make the experience interactive, educational and engaging."

Is Tech Too Damn Distracting?

Is Tech Too Damn Distracting? | Teaching in the XXI century | Scoop.it

"I’m a bad man. I simply do not pay attention the way I used to. I do so many things that I promised myself I would never do: Work on the computer when I’m supposed to be listening to someone on the phone. Watch my tweets flow by on my laptop while someone is standing right in front of me, talking to me. And worst of all, I sometimes Tweet or text while walking on New York City’s crowded streets and avenues.

What’s happened to me? Better question: What’s happening to us?"

Indeed! I could not agree more. I find myself distracted with tecnology on many occasions and I need to keep reminding myself that the virtual world and all the screens around me should not be replacing my real life and real interactions with friends and associates. And most of all should not let my manners slip by using my phone while someone else is talking to me.

"The next wave of the future could go beyond the technology we’re holding in our hands and extend to what’s embedded inside our hands. There is experimentation with bio-technological hacks going on today both in the lab and in an unsanctioned underground of fanatics that could result in body implant “upgrades” being as ubiquitous in 2025 as smartphones are now." ...

[VIDEO] Future Learning

Students are the future, but what's the future for students? To arm them with the relevant, timeless skills for our rapidly changing world, we need to revolutionize what it means to learn.
