Is It Okay to Be a Luddite?

Is It Okay to Be a Luddite? | @Work - 21st Century style | Scoop.it
The 21st Century has produced a whole new kind of altogether less revolutionary luddite. These are the folks who refuse to go on Facebook, who have tried Twitter but would never use it regularly.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas
Mike Collins's insight:

Whatever tools / technologies are used they must create value. Without value why would people us them? Is it possible to be a luddite just because people either don't know how to use these tools to derive value for themselves - yes they need to be at least open to using the tools but I believe once they are showbn how these tools add value for an individual they'll move away from being a luddite

more...
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 23, 11:07 AM

Being a Luddite has little to do with being anti-technology. The original movement was a social movement which was concerned with the working conditions in textile mills and other factories. We should be equally concerned with working conditions and living conditions of many people in the 21st Century. This is a technology question. The word technology is about the artful use of tools. If tools are used to exploit humans, other sentient beings, and the environment that hardly constitutes artful usage.

Five Trends Shaping The Future Of Work

Five Trends Shaping The Future Of Work | @Work - 21st Century style | Scoop.it
When it comes to the future of work there are a few key trends which business leaders need to pay attention to.  Understanding these trends will allow organizations to better prepare and adapt to the changes which are impacting the way we work.
Mike Collins's insight:

Social media and collaborative technologies are one of the same as they both require a different approach and thinking to truly make a difference. As these new behaviours form and become the norm in the workplace they will impact, drive, support the other trends - the future is social.

  • WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

    The  key factors are: Learners’ age, back ground knowledge, the purpose of learning, the learners’ circumstances (employed, students, unemployed, etc…)

  • DO YOU HAVE THE COURSE CURRICULUM?

    In many cases the course curriculum does exist, for example: National Curriculum, University course modules , In-house corporate training.

  • WHAT EXTERNAL PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS NEED TO BE MET?

    All external examination bodies provide an exam guide or syllabus which you have to insure your course will address them.

  • WHAT IS THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT?

    Would your learners attend any face to face classes? Do they access their course from home, work, or college? Do they work as a group or individuals?

13 Implications for Educational institutions at the primary, secondary, and post-secondary levels, are largely the products of technology infrastructure and social circumstances of the past.

The landscape has changed and educational institutions should consider how to adapt quickly in response. Some directions of change might include:

»Placing additional emphasis on developing skills such as critical thinking, insight, and analysis capabilities

»Integrating new-media literacy into education programs

»Including experiential learning that gives prominence to soft skills—such as the ability to collaborate, work in groups, read social cues, and respond adaptively

»Broadening the learning constituency beyond teens and young adults through to adulthood

»Integrating interdisciplinary training that allows students todevelop skills and knowledge in a range of subjects

terrymc's curator insight, October 10, 2013 4:12 AM

I think there is value in a system that captures skills development evidence on a lifelong basis that many providers could work with. Just because the term 'Badges' is used should not allow it to be trivialised. It could fill a valuable gap that enables employers to find graduates who can meet their immediate and long-term needs. I am following this to see how it works out in practice.

 

Dr. David Gentile's curator insight, October 15, 2013 8:40 AM

How might education change if Open-Badges become as valuable as a College or University Degree? What about High School? the future of education is moving towards greater individualization while the "Education Systems" move to greater standardization and making the experience the same for all learners. Doesn't this create a conflict?

Yes it is so true- be concise, pique curiosity, and use authentic video. Real world settings are so important when teaching L2 learners. A picture still is worth a 1000 words, so just think how much time we save "getting the message across" using brief videos to introduce or define or explain lesson topics.
Becky Mowat's curator insight, September 23, 2013 5:34 AM

I have been using videos creating L2 lessons for a long time to introduce, define and explain topics, also to pique curiosity to learn more... This article  clearly states what attributes a good learning/teaching video should have: brevity, piques curiosity, interesting graphics, real world setting. As educators we can understand why these qualities add value to video content in lessons. For L2 learners I especially like the way LingleOnline uses close-captioned video in many languages to meet the needs of its learners.
