Why are objects labelled innovative, extraordinary, when usually they do nothing to make us better humans, wiser, or more compassionate? The MOOC Quality Project. MOOCs represent the latest stage in the evolution of open educational resources.

The MOOC Quality Project

First was open access to course content, and then access to free online courses. Accredited institutions are now accepting MOOCs as well as free courses and experiential learning as partial credit toward a degree. The next disruptor will likely mark a tipping point: an entirely free online curriculum leading to a degree from an accredited institution. MOOCs are moving from an early entrepreneurial stage into the reality of more and more educational institutions. Five Future Trends That Will Impact the Learning Ecosystem. As summer reflections on the past school year turn into aspirations for the next year, it's important to keep in mind the big picture of change in education.

Five Future Trends That Will Impact the Learning Ecosystem

Five shifts in how we think about schools and education in general will help to regenerate the learning ecosystem, and will provoke our imagination about new possibilities for teaching and learning. 1. Democratized Entrepreneurship Democratized entrepreneurship will spread an entrepreneurial mindset among learners, educators and communities, accelerating a groundswell of grassroots innovation. Entrepreneurship is no longer reserved for those few with the resources to buffer risk and the social capital to access expertise and guidance. To take advantage of this trend: Begin to cultivate an edupreneurial mindset of experimentation, risk-taking, learning from failure, creative problem-solving, and market awareness in your classroom, and expand it to your school and district. 2. 3. 4.

The genesis of and challenges to the 3D-printing revolution are subjects that take center stage in a new documentary called Print the Legend.

Documentary 'Print the Legend' Goes Inside the World of 3D Printing

From directors Clay Tweel and Luis Lopez (Freakonomics), the film sets out to act as a "'time capsule' of a nascent industry," Tweel told Mashable. "The result is both a look inside a compelling new technology, and hopefully, a story about the challenges of growing any type of business, and facing the moral dilemmas our marketplace presents. " That it is. The 90-minute Netflix Original documentary delves headfirst into major issues facing the 3D-printing industry, including 3D printed-guns, which is addressed in the above clip. Tweel said he knew "nothing" about 3D printing when he walked into the doors of MakerBot nearly two years ago, but working behind the scenes has taught him much about the industry.

Print the Legend is now in theaters across New York and Los Angeles, and is also available on Netflix. Astronauts getting 3-D printer at International Space Station. Now Playing NASA awards 'space taxi' contract to Boeing and SpaceX CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – The 3-D printing boom is about to invade space.

Astronauts getting 3-D printer at International Space Station

NASA is sending a 3-D printer to the International Space Station in hopes that astronauts will be able to one day fix their spacecraft by cranking out spare parts on the spot. The printer, made by a Northern California company called Made in Space, is among more than 5,000 pounds of space station cargo that's stuffed into a SpaceX Dragon capsule that was supposed to lift off before dawn Saturday. 3D Printing Will Transform Education. 2014 Horizon Report.

The Future Of Education Eliminates The Classroom, Because The World Is Your Class. This probably sounds familiar: You are with a group of friends arguing about some piece of trivia or historical fact.

The Future Of Education Eliminates The Classroom, Because The World Is Your Class

Someone says, "Wait, let me look this up on Wikipedia," and proceeds to read the information out loud to the whole group, thus resolving the argument. Don’t dismiss this as a trivial occasion. It represents a learning moment, or more precisely, a microlearning moment, and it foreshadows a much larger transformation—to what I call socialstructed learning. Socialstructed learning is an aggregation of microlearning experiences drawn from a rich ecology of content and driven not by grades but by social and intrinsic rewards.

The microlearning moment may last a few minutes, hours, or days (if you are absorbed in reading something, tinkering with something, or listening to something from which you just can’t walk away).

A free 3D model definitely can save your budget and deadline. On average, a modeler saves over 2 hours of modeling time when they could get a free 3D model. Today, 3D models are used in a wide variety of industries. The movie industry uses them as characters and objects for animated and real-life motion pictures. The video game industry uses them as assets for computer and video games.The architecture industry uses them to demonstrate proposed buildings and landscapes through Software Architectural Models.
