The future of education

Videogames, digital pens, holograms and tactile learning platforms could all become the norm as education looks set to change dramatically over the next 30 years. With technology dominating in and outside the classroom, interconnectivity is likely to play a key role in helping students adapt to the changing world around them

Social science studies increasingly suggest that the divide between the virtual and real worlds is narrowing. What does this mean for culture and commerce?

I have tried a litte of this in my classroom and students like it. Children who struggle with learning often find this a positive experience.

John Dalziel's curator insight, August 30, 2014 5:10 AM

Histropedia is an interactive to that grabs content from wikipedia and presents it as a combination of...
   - timelines,
   - maps and
   - trends.
This enables "visual learners" to explore historical events visually rather than wading through information.
It's a good idea to click the "Featured Timelines" to get an idea of Histropedias potential.
Double clicking any panel lets users switch between content on Wikipedia and other sites like, for example, YouTube.

A Map of Every Device in the World That's Connected to the Internet | Gizmodo.com

A Map of Every Device in the World That's Connected to the Internet | Gizmodo.com | Online - Learning | Scoop.it
Where is the internet? This map might explain it better than any statistics could ever hope to: The red hot spots show where the most devices that can access the internet are located.This map was made on August 2 by John Matherly, the founder of Shodan, a search engine for internet-connected devices. Matherly, who calls himself an internet cartographer, collected the data to put it together by sending ping requests to every IP address on the internet, and storing the positive responses. A ping is a network utility that sends an echo-request message (known as a packet) to an IP address—the internet's version of "hey, are you there?"That part was relatively easy compared to the visualization process, says Matherly. "It took less than five hours to gather the data, and another 12 hours or so to generate the map image." For that, he used the matplotlib plotting library in the programing language Python.With its rainbow of connectedness, the map is similar to one produced last year by folks at Caida—however, that one was illegal. Although Shodan is well-known for its potentially shady practices that prey upon insecure networks, ping requests—the same thing your internet provider uses to test speed and data loss—are completely benign, Matherly says. "We've just advanced enough in technology where we can do it on internet-scale." Basically, Shodan is now able to send and receive the requests fast enough that the world can be queried in just a few hours. Armed with the new process, Matherly plans to track the changes in the globe's internet connectivity over time. With the proliferation of the Internet of Things, we're bound to see some of those black holes slowly colorize over the next few years. [Shodan]Click headline to read comments--
