Why the Rush Toward MOOC's?

Why the Rush Toward MOOC's? | The Academy for self-Learners | Scoop.it

"A question comes quickly to mind while reading “In Colleges’ Rush to Try MOOC’s, Faculty Are Not Always in the Conversation” (The Chronicle, September 26): What’s the rush? Massive open online courses appear to be a way for colleges to broaden their appeal and stand out among other institutions. But I find it strange that institutions with established histories such as Duke University and the California Institute of Technology would find it necessary to jump on MOOC’s."

Forecast 3.0, Recombinant Education: Regenerating the Learning Ecosystem-KnowledgeWorks

Forecast 3.0, Recombinant Education: Regenerating the Learning Ecosystem-KnowledgeWorks | The Academy for self-Learners | Scoop.it

The Future Forecast, The World of Learning and Futures Thinking describe the way KnowledgeWorks approaches educational reform."Futures Thinking---

 

"Forecast 3.0, Recombinant Education: Regenerating the Learning Ecosystem, highlights five disruptions that will reshape learning over the next decade. New education innovations, organizations, resources, and relationships will proliferate, giving us all the opportunity to put the pieces – some long-established and some new – together in new sequences to create a diverse and evolving learning ecosystem. Education recombination promises to bolster the learning ecosystem’s resilience by helping it withstand threats and make use of possibilities.

 

The choice is ours to make, and the future ours to shape. What will be the future of learning in your organization, community, or region?"

"What will the future of education look like? KnowledgeWorks Foundation has just released the third edition of its education forecast, called Forecast 3.0, Recombinant Education: Regenerating the Learning Ecosystem, that outlines the deconstruction of the current education model, a change in educators’ roles based on their strengths, changing career pathways, and the role of technology in this realm. The language might seem a bit futuristic, but the insights are fascinating."

The World Is Not Enough: Google and the Future of Augmented Reality

The World Is Not Enough: Google and the Future of Augmented Reality | The Academy for self-Learners | Scoop.it
It is The Future. You wake up at dawn and fumble on the bedstand for your (Google) Glass. Peering out at the world through transparent screens, what do you see?

 

If you pick up a book, do you see a biography of its author, an analysis of the chemical composition of its paper, or the share price for its publisher? Do you see a list of your friends who've read it or a selection of its best passages or a map of its locations or its resale price or nothing? The problem for Google's brains, as it is for all brains, is choosing where to focus attention and computational power. As a Google-structured augmented reality comes closer to becoming a product-service combination you can buy, the particulars of how it will actually merge the offline and online are starting to matter.

 

To me, the hardware (transparent screens, cameras, batteries, etc) and software (machine vision, language recognition) are starting to look like the difficult but predictable parts. The wildcard is going to be the content. No one publishes a city, they publish a magazine or a book or a news site. If we've thought about our readers reading, we've imagined them at the breakfast table or curled up on the couch (always curled up! always on the couch!) or in office cubicles running out the clock. No one knows how to create words and pictures that are meant to be consumed out there in the world.

 

This is not a small problem.
