"Every year, we put together an overview of the current iteration of the design process we’re teaching, along with some of our most-used tools. The guide was originally intended for recent graduates of our Bootcamp: Adventures in Design Thinking class. But we’ve heard from folks who’ve never been to the d.school that have used it to create their own introductory experience to design thinking.  The Bootcamp Bootleg is more of a cook book than a text book, and more of a constant work-in-progress than a polished and permanent piece."

The Bootcamp Bootleg is a free resource from the Stanford dschool (design school) that leads viewers through the entire design process. An outstanding resource for implementation.

As we begin a new year, BBC Future has compiled 40 intriguing predictions made by scientists, politicians, journalists, bloggers and other assorted pundits in recent years about the shape of the world from 2013 to 2150.


They range from the serious to the fanciful, from the exciting to the petrifying.

And to get a gauge on how likely they are to happen, we asked the special bets department at British betting firm Ladbrokes to give us their odds on each prediction coming true.

Be prepared for the future...

How many of these will come true,,,ha...ha I remember some of the great predictions in the past that never made it, whilst the unpredicted did. Anyone remember the "atomic" egg that would fit in a box to power all your household power needs? Anyone remember all the free time we were going to have to manage because robots and AI would be doing all the work?

The Road to Transformative Learning in higher education (3 part strategy)

The Road to Transformative Learning in higher education (3 part strategy) | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

from the website


"Higher education institutions are convinced that online learning isn’t just an attractive complement to traditional instruction — it’s often part of a core educational strategy that is fundamentally reshaping how they compete for students and achieve success. But even long-term veterans of online learning acknowledge that campuses must navigate a host of stumbling blocks, including underperforming support systems and digital content that doesn’t meet the needs of today’s students. What’s required is a three-part strategy that covers technology, curriculum and content planning, and professional development. This Center for Digital Education white paper explains how to begin this transformative process to bring a successful online learning environment to your campus."
