Teaching Kids to Curate Content Collections | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

While there are a ton of essential skills that today's students need in order to succeed in tomorrow's world, learning to efficiently manage -- and to evaluate the reliability of -- the information that they stumble across online HAS to land somewhere near the top of the "Muy Importante" list.

This educator describes how Scoop.it can be the tool by which you teach students to gather, manage, and evaluate information. I 100% agree with his caveat at the bottom that Scoop.it doesn't do the teaching but because it is so simple and seamless and allows for so much interaction and feedback between student curator and instructor, it is the perfect medium for it.

Accreditation for alternative credentialing gaining traction | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

"Multiple ideas to accredit alternative credentialing pathways are gaining traction in a push to expand opportunities for nontraditional, post-secondary learning. Massive open online courses, coding bootcamps, and other programs offering “microcredentials” can’t currently accept federal financial aid because they’re not accredited, which ends up limiting access to low-income prospective students, Insider Higher Ed reports."

15 Leadership Books Every Future Leader Should Read (or anyone actually) | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it
Many times I've had people ask me, "In addition to coaching and training, what else can I do to learn more about how to improve myself? How can I learn to be a great leader that propels myself and others towards greater growth and greater opportunities?"

 My answer is simple, read. Read everything you can about successful leaders and the steps that they have taken to achieve peak performance for themselves and their organisations.

 The following is a list, and brief overview, of some of the best books that I have read about leadership.

5 robots that are about to revolutionize the workforce — and put jobs at risk

5 robots that are about to revolutionize the workforce — and put jobs at risk | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

According to a study from Oxford University and the Oxford Martin School, 47% of jobs in the United States are "at risk" of becoming "automated in the next 20 years." PwC has similar findings, estimating that 38% of U.S. jobs are at risk of being replaced by robots and artificial intelligence in the next 15 years. And while two-thirds of Americans believe robots will take over most of the workforce in the next 50 years, they're also in denial: 80% say their job will "probably" or "definitely" be around in five decades.

Birkbeck Careers & Employability's curator insight, December 1, 2014 5:56 AM

This complicit silence is destroying companies, gulping profits and here’s the clincher: CEOs either have no idea or are looking the other way. Workplace bullying is a global epidemic that chases good people away – a lot of them. Typically, when people resign from companies, they do not say the truth about why they are leaving. Bonnie Low-Kramen writes an insightful piece on the price you pay as an employee, the price the company pays and what you should do; speak out. Bullying is unacceptable but often goes unnoticed because few are willing to admit it is happening. Rather, most are just interested in making a speedy exit. As Bonnie writes, ''Silence is the enemy of today’s workplace. Until company leaders recognise the problem and take positive action, the situation is going to get messier before it gets better''. Can you identify with this article? If you have, or did, suffer bullying at work, how did you get over it? Did you speak out? Or did you find a way out to another company? Let us know your thoughts and experiences.

The impact of National Qualifications Frameworks: by which yardstick do we measure dreams?

National Qualifications Frameworks (NQFs) are a global phenomenon. This is evidenced by their scale, coverage and intrinsic link with education policy across Europe and beyond. Research into their impact has encompassed a number of perspectives; theoretical, practical and evaluative. Yet, despite the existence of critical literature related to the development, design and impact of NQFs, little research has questioned the actual feasibility of researching the 'impact' of NQFs per se.

 sectorJamaica. Transforming education through vocational training

Vocational Education and Training (VET) has long been recognised in Jamaica as having a significant role to play in the creation of a highly skilled, productive, and competitive workforce. It is seen as the main vehicle through which the pervasive problem of youth unemployment can be adequately addressed. But it can be argued that we are still a long way off from having a strong and effective VET system.

How Google is disrupting the education system

How Google is disrupting the education system | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it
Google has unveiled plans to use its Squared Online course to disrupt the education system, as it says it is “successfully” merging classroom and online learning styles, something it claims rival tech firms have failed to do.

“Squared Online bridges the gap between the classic classroom experience, where you can’t get scale, and e-learning that can sometimes be a bit dry. It offers a more experiential learning experience,” says Shuvo Saha, director of the Google Digital Academy.

The course focuses on digital marketing and is split into five modules which look at disruption, how tech is changing businesses, the rise of social and mobile, data analytics and insights.

Squared Online originally began as a face-to-face class, but the tech giant soon realised it needed more scale and so decided to create an online interactive classroom. To do this it collaborated with Avado, a professional coaching company.

This allowed it to move from 30 people attending classes three to four times a year to working with up to 400 people at a time, in a much more collaborative way.

11 Ed Tech Trends to Watch in 2017 -- Campus Technology | disruptive technolgies | Scoop.it

Five higher ed leaders analyze the hottest trends in education technology this year.

The education technology forecast for 2017 could perhaps be described in a single word: change. "We're now on an exponential pace of technological change," said Daniel Christian, adjunct faculty member and senior instructional designer at Michigan's Calvin College. "Several technologies continue to converge, new forms of human-computer interaction are gaining visibility and traction, and more. The next few years will be interesting indeed!"

We asked a panel of five higher ed leaders from across the country, including Christian, to assess education's top tech-related trends for the coming year — from artificial intelligence to Generation Z. Here's what they told us.
