If this is how powerful social media is...how can districts continue to ban it from schools? In thinking about school design, social media is essential to leverage.

Alexis Niki's curator insight, July 24, 2013 8:32 AM

Favorite insight from author Simon Staffans: "There’s no contest here, at least not for me. Story is everything when it comes to transmedia. Is it a compelling and immersive story that has the weight and the bones to stretch to different platforms? Does it have a story world already in place, or is it easily conceivable how such a world could be designed and developed? Are the protagonists and antagonists (and side characters) suitable for a deeper mythology? Is it possible to sense the existence of a narrative superstructure somewhere along the road? If a project’s Story supports transmedia, you’re halfway there. If it doesn’t, don’t bother."

We used to go to school to learn to work; now learning is the work. We used to count on education to prepare our students for citizenship; now citizenship is learning. We used to prepare our students for a rewarding life; now life is learning.

In the industrial era, we prepared students to do jobs. Going forward, we need to prepare every child to invent jobs that build on the passion, cooperation and drive for mastery that are the engines of innovation."....

An Invitation to the Study of Cyborgs

An Invitation to the Study of Cyborgs | Social media and education | Scoop.it

Cyborgs, a fusion of man and machine

Cyborgs are gradually working their way into our lives. The general representation of a cyborg is that seen in science fiction films of a fusion between man and machine. A direct interface between the brain and the Internet, like the brain-machine interface (BMI) described in the science fiction manga Ghost in the Shell, has been successfully tested in laboratory experiments. That extreme level of man-machine fusion aside, people’s lives would already be compromised by not having a mobile phone or smartphone, and in some cases, when we think about those who lead a life that is dependent on such devices, we can see that the fusion between man and machine is underway with a momentum that supersedes the pros and cons.

Les personnes incorporant des biotechnologies sont des cyborgs, des amalgames d'êtres humains et de technologies. La fusion homme-machine semble inévitable : transplantation d'organes biotechnologiques, humains augmentés, recherche de la vie éternelle...

La philosophie occidentale nous amène à nous poser la question "Qu'est-ce que l'humanité ?", car elle fait la distinction entre l'espèce humaine et les machines. Aujourd'hui, il faut remplacer la question par "qu'est-ce qu'un cyborg ?"

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's comment, July 4, 2013 8:13 PM
Transmedia depends on engaging very primal psychologies--empathy, curiosity, the need for certainty and self-relevance--to get audience participation. The power is, as always, in the story. But the beauty of a transmedia strategy--compared to crossmedia--is that you don't have to tell the whole story at one time or in one medium, thus heightening the psychological response and increasing the motivation to explore and contribute. I love the Toshiba/Intel piece.

After laying down some ground rules about effective use they amazed us with their creative responses. It is not the tool. It is how you use it. And how teachers plan for it!
