What Will The World Look Like In 50 Years? - Forbes | The Social Climax of The Future | Scoop.it
VideoIn our world of both exponential growth and accelerating innovation, systems of repetition are "doomed to collapse." We need to make radical changes to the frameworks in which we operate.
Joshua Tobkin's insight:

In the future it will be clear that openness is better not only for you, but for me as well. Innovation and collaboration will occur quicker because we will understand intellectually that it's simply more efficient, that two heads are usually always better than one.

Joshua Tobkin's insight:

In the future when we need new products, we'll search for the designs we like, designer brands even, tweek them according to spec on our own computing devices, and then print it out. 

 

Same concept will apply to body parts and organs. . .

Nicholas Pringle's curator insight, May 21, 2013 6:05 AM

There is no mention of how each country will embrace these changes. How will teachers contribute to these platforms? Is it reasonable to expect a few people will be creating the content on which all others will rely?

Nicholas Pringle's comment, May 21, 2013 6:21 AM
Peope talk of a planet wide democratization of education yet it will be up to the educators to take ownership of these products and platforms to adjust them to their needs as well as their students.
Ana Cristina Pratas's comment, May 21, 2013 6:31 AM
Yes, educators have the choice and so do learners. Accountability for one's choices and responsibility for one's learning process is part of life. There are few barriers today. Obviously, access to hardware and electricity are essential, as well as knowing that there are available options. Nevertheless, the saying "You can lead a horse to water but not make it drink" remains as true as ever.

janlgordon's curator insight, February 19, 2013 1:34 PM

This post was written by Scott Forshay for his blog 

in July of 2010 aimed at luxury brands. Not only is it relevant today but there are many takeaways for any brand that is trying to capture and cultivate consumers in the mobile ecosystem.


Here is one highlight that caught my attention:


Rule of Seduction One: Produce Content Episodically


**Resist the temptation to unveil the entire story in a single instance.


**By deconstructing the narrative into episodes, the engagement teases the audience and creates desire to continue following the unfolding of the story.

 

Takeaway:


**Mobile, as a medium, is innately transitive in nature, serving as a persistent interface for consumers to navigate an ever-evolving digital ecosystem of retail touchpoints and become, themselves, players in the storytelling experience.


**Strategically dissecting the brand narrative to take on an episodic form allows the brand to engage audiences in the on-going drama, create desire to see where the story will lead, and create deeper emotional connections in the process.
