Microsoft rachète Linkedin, c'est le plus gros rachat de Microsoft. Ce rachat donne accès à Microsoft aux réseaux sociaux. Les deux acteurs ciblent le marché des professionnels. En rachetant Linkedin, Microsoft accèdent à une multitude de données sur les entreprises et leurs salariés.

Sharing this because data privacy is an issue that is a priority concern no matter what year it is.  There are a lot of "non-friendlies" who think of things ordinary folks would never even imagine.

A Map of Education Technology Through 2040 [#Infographic]

How will disruptive technology change education?

"Education is priceless."  It's not a process that should be disrupted.  If technology is disruptive, that's just ignorant!

Information specialists are looking for ways to employ these new technologies in innovative ways.

Jeroen Bottema's curator insight, August 27, 2013 2:08 AM

"

What will education look like in the future?

Considering that 10 years ago very few students carried smartphones, andtablets didn’t even exist, it’s impossible to look 20 or 30 years into the future. It is likely, however, that cloud-based technology will be the foundation for educational technology and that remote, online learning will continue to grow at a faster pace.

Will the developing world catch up with the developed world? Will residential colleges be as popular as they are today? And what about degrees…will they still mean something to employers?"

Treathyl Fox's comment, August 27, 2013 10:09 AM
I'm not a geek or tech type. I should have kept up with the technology revolution, but I didn't. But with respect to what I did learn and derive benefits from? If it's real progress, let it run its course. Don't get in the way and don't try to stop it. "Education is priceless."

The end of ‘just Google it’: Why students need to be digitally literate | Work From Home | Scoop.it
With so much information readily available in a range of multimodal formats, from text to multimedia, apps and social networking, we need to blend technological learning and critical literacy together so that students can critically appraise the information that they are accessing.

Education IT: Hot Tech Trends To Watch - InformationWeek | Work From Home | Scoop.it

Cloud, big data, and security are all big factors in education IT this year. At the same time, there is a cultural shift taking place not only among the student body, but within the demographics of the IT departments themselves.

Treathyl Fox's insight:

If keeping up with technology isn't a full time job, I don't know what it. Good thing the youngsters keep up enough for us old folks. :)

What Really keeps Women out of Tech : The % of women studying computer science actually has fallen since the 1980s

What Really keeps Women out of Tech : The % of women studying computer science actually has fallen since the 1980s | Work From Home | Scoop.it

RT @arteeninLA: "The percentage of women studying computer science actually has fallen since the 1980s." http://t.co/eX9Zdg55C8

Treathyl Fox's insight:

Fact 1:  "TECHNOLOGY companies know they have a gender and diversity problem in their work force, and they are finally taking steps to try to fix it. "  Fact 2:  “The percentage of women studying computer science actually has fallen since the 1980s.” While reading this article, felt a strong urge to strike through or draw a line through the word “stereotype”. Although the professional conducting the research admits that stereotyping computer "scientists as white or Asian male geeks" was only part of the problem. Glad that observation was included. Quite frankly don't see where it should even be a problem. Just look to the example of all the women who have excelled in a “man's world” - women pilots, women doctors, etc. Think they gave any heed to stereotypes? At any rate, if the reason or reasons women are not pursuing careers in this field is result of subtle or overt discrimination and/or intentional discouragement, miseducation or misdirection, when they have the aptitude, talent and ability, then something needs to be done about that.  Evidently some institutions of higher learning are implementing effective strategies to do something about it and to persuade women to choose computer science as a major.
