Naivety in the Digital Age?

Naivety in the Digital Age? | What's New in Education? | Scoop.it

. Naivety in the Digital Age means not realizing and accepting the dangers of the Internet, the ignorance of the need to secure its computer and any other device connecting to the Internet (smartphones + TV, fridge …), having no clue about Cyber-Security and people who think that Internet-Safety ALONE is enough!

 

===> Naif means ALSO thinking that a certain Operating System is secure and perfect! Nobody is perfect: <===

I love this! This is why the arts (typically thought of more highly related to creative thinking) are being seen, more and more, as an integral part of science and math (typically seen as a spot for critical thinking).

AR SPOT: An Augmented-Reality Programming Environment for Children | Augmented Environments Lab | What's New in Education? | Scoop.it

AR SPOT is an augmented-reality authoring environment for children. An extension of MIT’s Scratch project, this environment allows children to create experiences that mix real and virtual elements. Children can display virtual objects on a real-world scene observed through a video camera, and they can control the virtual world through interactions between physical objects.

Transformation in Education: Can iPad, and other ICT devices, help to transform learning cultures? #ukedchat #edtech - Enabling Environments

Transformation in Education: Can iPad, and other ICT devices, help to transform learning cultures? #ukedchat #edtech - Enabling Environments | What's New in Education? | Scoop.it

"At an ICT Subject Leaders conference I had the chance to listen to Craig Wilkie who speaks passionately about Transformation in Education. I really valued his honesty, and almost his vulnerability, in promoting this thinking in schools (Transformation sounds like a big deal, and a scary concept!) However, as his presentation went on, I realised that my school and other settings I have worked with are transforming the learning culture."

The British have invaded 9 out of 10 countries | What's New in Education? | Scoop.it
Britain has invaded all but 22 countries in the world in its long and colourful history, new research has found.

 

This is a great map to show the historical impact of colonialism on the world map.  The map is based on the work in the new book All the Countries We've Ever Invaded: And the Few We Never Got Round To.

Military conflict is often at times overlooked at as a source of language diffusion however the information displayed in this article can help explain how English has become one of the most popular languages in the world today.
Matthew DiLuglio's curator insight, October 12, 2013 7:33 PM

The British have done this in reality, in the physical world, in space and time... but perhaps the Chinese have done this in our minds!  Everything our country trades for has parts made in China.  We simply can't live without these things that may be invented in the US, and designed in the US, but assembled in China.... China has a name for itself, and they're playing a game of Monopoly.  They have hotels on Board walk and Park place, and they're eating us alive... I've conferred with politicians, who say that they're on the verge of turning their hidden empire into a physical one, and going from simple monetary domination to war.  They outnumber the US, and have better technology, and evidently more skill and products.  Not much to say about that, but if they learn from the mistakes of the British, the Chinese could really create a truly elite empire that could outlast any other in human history...  But really, if they include American/Chinese cuisine in their menu, I'm sold at General Tao's chicken... Go China! 

Nathan Chasse's curator insight, March 17, 2014 8:36 PM

This map illustrates just how wide-reaching the British Empire was throughout its history. Though the map cheats a little by including the activities of sanctioned pirates and minor invasions, almost the whole world excepting several very small nations and some difficult to reach inland ones.

 

The most surprising was Sweden considering the proximity and the frequent viking invasions on the British isles which were apparently never reciprocated.

100 People: A World Portrait

100 People: A World Portrait | What's New in Education? | Scoop.it

This is the truly global project that asks the children of the world to introduce us to the people of the world.  We've seen videos and resources that ask the question, "if there were only 100 people in the world, what would it look like?"  This takes that idea of making demographic statistics more meaningful one step further by asking student in schools for around the world to nominate some "representative people" and share their stories.  The site houses videos, galleries from each continent and analyze themes that all societies must deal with.  This site that looks at the people and places on out planet to promote greater appreciation of cultural diversity and understanding is a great find.
