10 Breakthrough Technologies 2018 - MIT Technology Review

10 Breakthrough Technologies 2018 - MIT Technology Review | National Disability Coordination Program Northern Victoria | Scoop.it
Every year since 2001 we’ve picked what we call the 10 Breakthrough Technologies. People often ask, what exactly do you mean by “breakthrough”? It’s a reasonable question—some of our picks haven’t yet reached widespread use, while others may be on the cusp of becoming commercially available. What we’re really looking for is a technology, or perhaps even a collection of technologies, that will have a profound effect on our lives.

For this year, a new technique in artificial intelligence called GANs is giving machines imagination; artificial embryos, despite some thorny ethical constraints, are redefining how life can be created and are opening a research window into the early moments of a human life; and a pilot plant in the heart of Texas’s petrochemical industry is attempting to create completely clean power from natural gas—probably a major energy source for the foreseeable future. These and the rest of our list will be worth keeping an eye on. —The Editors

Engaging article. When I was growing up we had a TV show called "Towards 2000 and Beyond 2000". Now that we are in the 2000's I am astounded at what is on the horizon (and maybe a little frightened).

To Connect Classes to Careers, Consider Erasing Grade Levels | EdSurge News

To Connect Classes to Careers, Consider Erasing Grade Levels | EdSurge News | National Disability Coordination Program Northern Victoria | Scoop.it
Back in the early 1900s, John Dewey promoted the “learning by doing” approach to education, which would later become the foundation of project-based learning (PBL). This framework allows for students to use knowledge from all areas of study to complete a project or task, a process that prepares them for the challenges that they may have to overcome in a future career.

Having a job may seem a lifetime away for a child. But by exposing them to different career paths, we can get them thinking about their life after high school before it’s too late.

As teachers, administrators, or parents, we know how important the future is for our students, and we want to give them an idea of what to expect when the next chapter of their lives begin. But how can we better prepare them for their lives after graduation?

Mark Cottee's insight:
Ultimately, the ability of government systems and public authorities to adapt will determine their survival. If they prove capable of embracing a world of disruptive change, subjecting their structures to the levels of transparency and efficiency that will enable them to maintain their competitive edge, they will endure. If they cannot evolve, they will face increasing trouble.

Five Components of Good Feedback

Five Components of Good Feedback | National Disability Coordination Program Northern Victoria | Scoop.it

Everyone needs feedback in order to improve. You would be hard-pressed to identify any profession where it isn’t a central component to success. As I have written in the past, there is nothing more vital to our professional roles than good feedback that paints a picture not only of what we are doing well but areas where we can either become much better or outright improve. It helps us to develop both goals and objectives that guide our work in our respective roles. For the most part, everyone wants good feedback so that they can become better.

Get a glimpse into the Future of Higher Education

Get a glimpse into the Future of Higher Education | National Disability Coordination Program Northern Victoria | Scoop.it

My niece started university this past September at a major Canadian campus. She spent the first two weeks on her mobile phone, rearranging her schedule and switching courses using the university’s mobile app. Many of her friends are attending a smaller university just a few miles away—one that doesn’t provide a mobile app. They spent the first two weeks standing in line at the registrar’s office, and complained bitterly about it.

It’s a common refrain from Millennials. Students today expect the same kind of digital experience from their schools as they get from popular consumer brands like SnapChat, Instagram and YouTube. Many institutions of higher learning find it tough to deliver such an experience, due to restricted funding, aging technology, and siloed information and processes.

If you want to offer a digital campus that attracts and retains students, your institution should focus on these key areas:

The one crucial skill our education system is missing | #Empathy #EmotionalIntelligence

The one crucial skill our education system is missing | #Empathy #EmotionalIntelligence | National Disability Coordination Program Northern Victoria | Scoop.it

From Blade Runner to I, Robot, the big screens of Hollywood have predicted the rise of the machine. Automated intelligences will wait our tables and drive our cabs. They will serve us by performing menial tasks. But fact is now surpassing fiction. Automation has moved beyond the factory assembly line as computers are diagnosing illnesses, providing legal counsel, and make financial and political decisions. And if artificial intelligence really is faster, smarter and more reliable, what are we left with?

The answer is precisely that element which makes us less efficient and slower. Our humanity. But rather than being seen as a weakness, this is actually our strongest suit. It’s one we need to empower, because studies show that as the world becomes increasingly automated, computerised and digitalised, we are losing the very skills that define us as human. Just when we need them the most.

Our empathy is something that computers will always struggle to emulate. We need to celebrate what makes us different from even the smartest of the machines. While the future belongs to those who are able to navigate this increasingly digitalised world of ours, the choicest spoils will fall to those who can combine technological fluency with emotional intelligence.

Felipe Rincon's curator insight, March 14, 8:22 PM
It is very interesting the way in which this article emphasizes the importance of empathy and the other characteristics belonging to the human being in our society, also how that characteristics distance us from machines. I think that the implementation of methodologies that take into consideration this aspects in education in general will contribute to the comprehensive citizens education. The appropriate combination of technological fluency with emotional intelligence should be one of the goals in modern education

This is how Generation Z will bypass college

This is how Generation Z will bypass college | National Disability Coordination Program Northern Victoria | Scoop.it

School originated to train obedient factory workers but hasn't evolved much since then.

Coursera and the University of Phoenix paved the way for people to digitally learn from a distance. Next, traditional and leading colleges began offering online courses--sometimes for free. Then institutions allowed degrees to be completed online, for example, Georgia Institute of Technology partnered with Udacity and AT&T to offer the first online Master of Science in Computer Science from an accredited university that students can earn exclusively online for a fraction of the normal cost.

But are these education changes too little too late for Generation Z who has their sights on more innovative and agile education alternatives?

What is teaching? A definition and discussion | National Disability Coordination Program Northern Victoria | Scoop.it
In this piece Mark K Smith explores the nature of teaching – those moments or sessions where we make specific interventions to help people learn particular things. He sets this within a discussion of pedagogy and didactics and demonstrates that we need to unhook consideration of the process of teaching from the role of ‘teacher’ in schools.

Daniela Montoya's curator insight, February 28, 5:52 PM
I find this article of special relevance to all those involved in a teaching program. Understanding the very meaning of the concept “teaching” will influence the teaching practice as Paul Hirst (1975), cited in the article, states: ‘being clear about what teaching is matters vitally because how teachers understand teaching very much affects what they actually do in the classroom’.

With the purpose of helping the reader construct the definition of “teaching”, the author addresses the term from two different approaches: Transmitting knowledge or learning things, and observing and working on students’ needs, feelings, and experiences. Moreover, he covers the concept of pedagogy, didactic, scaffolding, and teacher-centered method and student-centered method.

Teaching Current Events in the Age of Social Media - Edutopia

Teaching Current Events in the Age of Social Media - Edutopia | National Disability Coordination Program Northern Victoria | Scoop.it

"With each click of the mouse or flip of the channel, our society is inundated with headlines focused on natural disasters, sexual harassment allegations, countries on the brink of war, and teen suicides. While none of this is anything new, the bombardment of these stories is unique to this generation of student. Social media, the 24-hour news cycle, and questionable media sources (or questionable reporting techniques) have become their own newsworthy headlines. As a result, life can appear dark, far darker than in pre–social media days.

As adults, we bring our prior knowledge of history and our optimism about humanity to help us process and filter this inundation. Our students, however, do not have hindsight to combat their feelings of helplessness. They are surrounded by unfiltered current events—a rapid fire of negativity that can leave them vulnerable and overly anxious. It’s no wonder that teen stress is on the rise.

Nevertheless, our students have to know about the world around them, and part of our job as educators is to prepare them for the realities of the world outside the classroom walls. It’s difficult, however, to walk this precarious high wire of responsibility knowing that we need to expose students to current events and yet still nurture them developmentally."

"When teens were asked, recently, if they believe their parents know “a little” or “nothing” about what they do or say online, or even what social-media apps and sites they use, more than a quarter of them agreed.

After visiting schools around the country, it seems to me they’re likely giving their parents a bit too much credit. When I ask audiences at parent education nights how many have ever used Snapchat, Musical.ly or Tbh, few if any hands go up.

I’ve interviewed middle school and high school students about secrets they wish parents knew about their online use, but don’t necessarily want to tell them. These are three of the secrets students shared:"
