Bill Gates: Why I want to stop talking about the “developing” world

Bill Gates: Why I want to stop talking about the “developing” world | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
My late friend Hans Rosling called the labels “outdated” and “meaningless.” Any categorization that lumps together China and the Democratic Republic of Congo is too broad to be useful. But I’ve continued to use “developed” and “developing” in public (and on this blog) because there wasn’t a more accurate, easily understandable alternative—until now.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Gates speaks of Hans Rosling's new book Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World—and Why Things Are Better Than You Think.  

 

I am saddened by the news that Han's Rosling died earlier this year. His fact based world view (brilliantly support by data visualizations) is one of the reasons I count myself a serial optimist.  This is a book that will shake you free of preconceptions and help you see the world in a new (and very hope filled) light.

5 levers that can unlock smarter demand for education technology

5 levers that can unlock smarter demand for education technology | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
When procurement decisions focus too heavily on inputs like enrolling students in online courses or filling tutoring time, it’s hardly surprising to find tools merely providing cheaper seat-time-based learning models. Pockets of the market, such as credit recovery, have largely fallen victim to this trend. Moreover, even if schools want to focus on learning outcomes, they may be purchasing tools blindly when little to no efficacy data exists to inform their decisions.

WisdomMaps: A New Generation of History Mind Maps 

WisdomMaps represents a new way of organizing information that mimics the human thought process and results in greater learner engagement and better learning. This is impossible for other learning methodologies based on “linear learning” to achieve on account of the limitations of “spaghetti code”: information imbibed like slurping up a strand of spaghetti, that is read or heard one sentence or phrase at a time. Spaghetti code is difficult to untangle and organize, and most learners retain only a small fraction of what they read or hear in this fashion.

Here’s a slightly Orwellian way to check whether your students may have plagiarized part of their essays: the Chrome extension Draftback, which plays back the revision history of any Google doc you can edit—down to the keystroke.

What is Design Thinking?

 

Design thinking is an empathy based, creative problem solving process embraced by innovators around the world for addressing complex problems. At its heart, it nurtures the ability to see a situation from someone else's point of view, engineer a solution, and then test and refine your solution based on feedback. It is one approach CSI students will use to master the California Common Core State Standards and build the adaptable thinking skills they will need for success in the 21st century workforce.
