Curiosity is probably the greatest intrinsic motivator for learning... foster curiosity and you create a learner...

Thank you for sharing.

Tonya Ward Singer's curator insight, January 31, 2014 11:57 AM

Provocative article, especially the questions at the bottom, including: What happens when students don't know what they don't know?

 

I ask this for us as communities and a socieity, what happens when we don't know what we don't know?     

 

History has some terrifying answers on what people can do collectively when locked into a set idea of "knowledge."   

 

How can we best leverage technology to support students as critical thinkers, curious and empowered?

Nanotechnology solutions to combat superbugs

Nanotechnology solutions to combat superbugs | Technology and Communication | Scoop.it

The emergence of superbugs has made it imperative to search for novel methods, which can combat the microbial resistance. Thus, application of nanotechnology in pharmaceuticals and microbiology is gaining importance to prevent the catastrophic consequences of antibiotic resistance. Nanotechnology based approaches are advantageous to improve various preventive measures such as coatings and filtration. Similarly, diagnosis using efficient nanosensors or probes can speed up the treatment process at an early stage of disease. Nano-based drug carriers for existing antibiotics enhance their bioavailability and make them more targets specific. Also the combination of nanoparticles (NPs) along with antibiotics makes them more lethal for micro-organisms.

Nanotecnologia vesus resistência so micróbios.Esta é uma tendência que importa acompanhar, tanto na área do desenvolvimento cintífico, como na necessidade de alteração de hábitos na presecrição médica e sobretudo na automedicamentação.

A introdução de nanosensores na área preventiva é uma de muitas microevoluções que fazem desta área do desenvolvimento uma importante tendência para o futuro de médio prazo.

Broadcast Yourselfie: How teens use social media and why it matters to you - Brian Solis

Broadcast Yourselfie: How teens use social media and why it matters to you - Brian Solis | Technology and Communication | Scoop.it

If you want to know the future of technology and its impact on society study how younger generations interact with one another today. With the sting of a face palm, you’ll experience a sheer rush of humility as you realize that everything you thought you knew about tech is simply nascent compared to the sophistication of digital natives. No matter how connected you are or how many followers or friends you have online, there’s a sense of artistry mashed together with counter intuitive behavior that just works.

 

My advice to you is to study it.right.now. Don’t try to make sense oft it? Don’t question it. Don’t try to make it fit into your world. Simply try to understand it. Doing so opens the door to meaningful insights. And, this allows you to make decisions about the future without letting your predispositions or assumptions lead you in fallacious directions.

 

To help Pew Research Center published a new study that examines teens’ social media privacy management and overall behavior. Why is it important? Well, for starters, social and mobile for teens (akadigital natives) is simply a way of life....

Lots of interesting social media insight from Brian Solis like this 16-yr old: "Facebook just really seems to have more drama.”
