Alfredo Corell's curator insight, August 15, 2:25 PM
About ScissorsflyIn the spirit of freedom and creativity, we designed Scissorsfly. For the first time ever, you will be equipped with something that frees your imagination to creatively collect and organize everything you love on the web, and share them with friends.

Scissorsfly originates from an open hackathon hosted at LinkedIn, when Sillicon Valley tech talents from places like Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, or CMU, MIT, Stanford, Berkerly came to play. We won the championship with the idea called ClipIt, which becomes the magic scissors at your hand today. 

Web 1.0 gave you static webpages. Web 2.0 gives you interactions and collaborations with the web and the world. Scissorsfly will give you not only that, but also the initiative to tailor the web at will. It will be an experience beyond the long lasting web 2.0...

Finally, you can run wild with these scissors.
Their MissionCollecting and organizing information is really important to us. However, it could be painful from time to time. We built Scissorsfly for you to enjoy the process.
TeamWe are an early stage startup based in Mountain View (CA) and Chicago (IL). Our team is small and close-knit, with both strong engineering (e.g. Google, Yahoo!, Linkedin, eBay) and research (e.g. security, data mining, machine learning) backgrounds. For anything interesting, drop us a line at support@scissorsfly.com.

From Chalkboards To Chat Boards: What Will eLearning Look Like In 2075? - Edudemic

From Chalkboards To Chat Boards: What Will eLearning Look Like In 2075? - Edudemic | Technologies in ELT | Scoop.it
Albert Einstein said: “Your imagination is a preview of coming attractions.” When we consider education, does this mean that we will eventually live in a world where learning feels more like play and everyone has access to equal education?
Evelyn Izquierdo's insight:
I cannot imagine our world for 2075, but I guess wearable devices will be even more sofisticated and popular. Perhaps, there won't be any cables, screens, remote controls or flash memories, just holograms and security programs based on rays or on our sight. How do you image a class? What about the learning environment?
