iPad Pro: An Educator's First Impressions

iPad Pro: An Educator's First Impressions | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

"My iPad Pro arrived this past week to my excitement. I have used it for just a few days now at this point. There are absolutely no regrets about this large purchase (I joked that it did cost exactly half of what I paid for my first car!). I am thoroughly impressed by this device. The larger size of this iPad gives it a new device feeling, as opposed to just a refreshed model of the same dimensions. I hope to do a series of posts outlining my use of the iPad Pro. This first post will just outline some initial thoughts on the device, and who I think it is best suited for. Readers of this blog will know that I’m a huge supporter of using iPads for content creation as opposed to just content consumption. The iPad Pro, along with the new features of iOS 9, bring with it many more possibilities of doing so."

Drones and Robotics to See Explosive Growth Through 2021 #STEM | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
Adoption of drones and robotics will more than double in the next three years. Drones will outpace the larger and more mature robotics category, but both will grow by solid double digits year-over-year for the next three years.

According to the new report from IDC, combined worldwide spending on drones and robotics totaled $84.44 billion in 2017. That figure will jump to $103.1 billion in 2018. By 2021, spending will reach $218.4 billion — a three-year compound annual growth rate of 25.4 percent.

(Empathic Design) Design Thinking – Where Empathy and Innovation Meet 

(Empathic Design) Design Thinking – Where Empathy and Innovation Meet  | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

The old saying that you should ‘walk a mile in someone else’s shoes’ to understand what they are going through is really the essence of what design thinking is all about. If the goal is to design a technology solution to a customer problem, it makes a great deal of sense to go the extra mile to understand that problem from their perspective. A design thinking approach puts empathy for the end user foremost in problem solving.

“Empathy for the customer’s problems is at the center of a good design. If the solution is empathetic, people are more likely to want to engage with the design. They will then be more willing to fall in line with the solution that emerges,” said Pierre Enriquez, Scrum Master at TDK Technologies.
