This uber connectedness will enable profound new business possibilities and capabilities, most of which will be beneficial and a few that will likely not be quite as good.

Combine ambient data on just about any physically manufactured object — from car tires and milk cartons to shipping containers and test tubes — with pervasive wearable technologies that constantly present us with dashboards, notifications, analyses, and visualizations of all this data, and you have a workplace that will rapidly turn into a contemporary cybernetic amagamation that was previously only the purview of science fiction.

Worse, I actually know this from personal experience: Devices like Google Glass have already caused me to spend more time wearing, looking at, and talking to this deeply connected digital and virtual world than I ever thought possible until recently.

This scoop is fantastic for educators, formative assessment is a pivital part of assessment and all teachers must be aware that there are many examples to do formative assessment.  Within the Australian Curriculum all Key Learning Areas will benefit from this document.  The document is also downloadable, this is great to allow teachers to change examples to suit their specific needs.

I don't see color used very often on pharmacy webpages or handouts. Maybe we consider our subject matter as too serious to incorporate color.  However, color can help with learning. A key point here is to use bold, not bright!

They are probably getting help. It is just subtle and part of the general learning environment that is created by good teachers.

Reontay's curator insight, March 15, 2016 8:52 AM

Yes i totally agree with the author. Allowing kids to strugggle as they learn will make them understand and solve the problem better.

 

I think that the education system will change, as now of days, the teachers usually guide the students on how to solve the problem. But now after it is proven that allowing the students to struggle will let the students learn better. The school should adapt and instead of guiding the students,they should only explain the problem and allow the students to solve it themselves.

 

Some of the bad influence will be that the student will find the problems to hard and give up more easily or start to hate school.

Some good influence are that the student may learn better and will very much help in their futures.

 

Everyone benifits from it as the students will learn better and also learn more values like not giving up easily. Besides the students the economy  will also benifit as when the student start working, it would be easier for him to understand and adapt and Singapore economy could improve faster.

 

No it is not foolproof as everychild is different. So diffferent students may take different time to understand or they may not even understand at all.
