Higher education technology predictions for 2014 | Mark Smithers

Higher education technology predictions for 2014 | Mark Smithers | Trying to scoop | Scoop.it

In summary, we’ll have another contentious year. We’ll see big growth in higher education services from outside of the university sector, a continued gnashing of teeth from established providers. Some new services and platforms will emerge to cater for different forms of learning, MOOCs will evolve and improve and open badges will be hot. Look out for rhizomatic learning.

Focus on online learning. What about those with poor internet connection? Mark is from Australia where almost half half of those on low incomes can’t afford home internet. - See more at: http://www.probonoaustralia.com.au/news/2013/10/internet-access-not-all-report#sthash.HYW1d3kZ.dpuf

My prediction - education opportunities will reduce for many as the digital devide grows. Due in part because online educators don't get what learner's need - offline access to study resources.

Collect, Curate, Communicate: The 3 C's Of Content Curation

Collect, Curate, Communicate: The 3 C's Of Content Curation | Trying to scoop | Scoop.it

This is an informative article by Jeremy Floyd about content curation and useful for novices. Here is an excerpt from it:

"In the past, we had a few channels of information and each channel had a few gatekeepers that sorted, prioritized and reported the information to the public.

 

Today, information-consumers have an endless supply of channels. News, entertainment, gossip and professional development all drain into the same information stream that flows rich throughout the connected world. The gatekeepers have been removed and anyone is free to flow about the stream looking for relevant and useful information.

 

Since people have “clipped” news articles, there has been content curation. Today, however, the information flow is that of a mighty raging river, and it’s easy to get lost in the current. Content curators are effective at managing a series of information pipes and sharing that with their following.

 

1. Collect:
The content curator’s work is never done. Minutes after perusing your RSS reader 20 more articles have been posted and the cycle starts again. In the mainstream news era, the national news came on at precisely the same time every night.

2. Curate:
- Consistent Subject Matter – Because the information flow is swift and always moving, content curators must be consistent with their niche and resist the temptation to follow whims. Define the topics that you are going to cover.
- Direct Communication – Social media has no appreciation for nuance, so as a curator, be direct.
- Filter Consistently – As news editors filtered the news that was worthy of their readership, think about what is relevant to your readership. Filter out the stories that are redundant, irrelevant or boring.

3. Communicate:
- Be human - Bring your voice to your content. Be real.
- Be frequent not a freak when you overpublish..."

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, April 25, 2013 8:11 PM

As Clair tweeted "a single twitter handle (AP's) is hacked and the Dow tumbles 150 points."


Why? As she explains through a combination of automated trading and lack of social media usage by the traders.


Technology is great. But I'm a firm believer that the best way to leverage it is not to let it go on auto-pilot but rather have its output curated by humans - a concept we like to call Humanrithm which we apply at Scoop.it, for instance when our discovery algorithm only makes content suggestions but lets users decide what gets published and what is not.


Did we get lucky this time? Some people probably weren't and lost something in that story. But if we don't want SF movies to become real one day, we have to start educating and empowering everyone to curate social media.

Pierre Scampini's curator insight, April 26, 2013 6:20 AM

Tous les outils quels qu'ils soient doivent être créés pour servir l'humain et non s'auto-gérer au-delà du raisonnable. Gardons cette éthique y compris dans les sytèmes de l'information et leurs processus.

Quelques questions universelles peuvent nous aider à en faire le diagnostique et s'aplliquent à tous les systèmes ou projets:

 

1- Est ce que cela tiens la mer ? Est ce relié au monde des vivants ? (Approche)

 

2- Est ce bien fait ? ( Déploiement)

 

3- la boucle PDCA est elle bouclée et enrichie ? (Evaluation)

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All our tools should be created to serve humans and not to serve themselves. We must keep this ethical idea in mind for IT systems too.

Universal questions should help us. They could be used to make the diagnostic of any system or project:

 

1- Does it stay afloat ? Is it linked with living world and specially human world ? (Approach)

 

2- Is it well done ? ( Deployment)

 

3- PDCA (Prepare, Start, Control, Secure)  is complete ? (Assesment)

What’s the proper role of MOOCs in higher ed?

As with any new technology, effective use of online learning can improve both the quality and quantity of what we do, but misapplication of the technology can just as surely lead to teaching the largest number of people in the shallowest possible way, which is in nobody’s interest. Using online learning to improve what we are good at, while doing the research to illuminate the opportunities we haven’t yet taken advantage of, are key to sustaining the reputation of quality that has taken nearly a century and a half to build.
