2014: The Year of the Google Smart Home #Infographic

2014: The Year of the Google Smart Home #Infographic | Education Technologies | Scoop.it
Google made big news with its acquisition of Nest, the fast-growing “smart” product lines for the home (a smoke detector and thermostat), but did you know that the search engine giant has also been acquiring and developing other technologies to make all our homes even smarter? This infographic delves into the businesses Google has recently acquired that, when all placed together, could have some powerful effects on the types of technology we use in our home. From using hand gestures to fast forward our DVR to being able to pick up missed packages whenever we want at a 24/7 kiosk, the Google smart home is coming all together in 2014.

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning

Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | Education Technologies | Scoop.it
Many educators are doing Education 1.0; talking about doing Education 2.0; when they should be planning and implementing Education 3.0. This post compares the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education. The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe. The web influences people’s way of thinking, doing and being; and people influence the development and content of the web.

Adam Lenaarts's curator insight, April 21, 2014 2:07 PM

 This education 3.0 concept combined with Keegan's levels of Ego Development should help educators and students in their question for glory.

 

Dean Mantz's curator insight, May 5, 2014 3:12 PM

Special thanks to Feed the Teacher (Giselle Santos) for sharing this diagram originally posted by Dr. Jackie Gerstein.  

 

The one point I really like is the definition of Education 3.0 - planning and implementing education.  The key is being thoroughly infused and reinvented. 

Jeremiah Stanley's curator insight, August 6, 2014 3:16 PM
