When Mattias Swenson, Patrik Ring and their three co-founders first decided to launch a startup out of high school, the plan was to work on it for a year and then move on with their lives. Growing up in Stockholm, they said, they didn’t know of anyone else who gave up university for entrepreneurship. But more than five years later, they’re still at it. And their startup Bloglovin, which is something like a visual RSS reader meets Tumblr for the entire blogosphere, is poised for a new level of growth.

The Design Thinking School | NoTosh Design Thinking is more than "shop" class and some post-it notes. It's more than simply 'making' things to solve a problem. We've taken the concepts of design thinking that we practice every week with creative companies in fashion, media and technology, and matched them with what the research shows us works for great learning. The result is a process that helps frame learning for which young people have more responsibility, more choice and deeper learning in any given field, from Shakespeare to Social Studies, Physics to Philosophy. We can work with schools on a regular basis through our NoTosh OnTap retainer basis, offering a low day rate fee with no hidden transport or accommodation charges. We can also run a programme to fit in with your school's regular professional development sessions. The Design Thinking School | NoTosh
Ewan McIntosh | Digital Media & Learning Originally posted on the wonderful NoTosh Facebook page. During my tour of Sweden, I worked with groups of senior education leaders - district directors, politicians, parent and union reps, principals - and sometimes it might even have been the first time that these distinct groups of leaders had sat together in the same room to talk about how their strategies for better learning might actually be put into place. All the discussions and processes we used unearthed fascinating insights, interesting as much as anything for the potential that, until now, had been locked up in their different perspectives of what great learning actually entailed. One such fascinating discussion was with a wide range of education leaders at a 90 minute workshop in Tidaholm, a beautiful city a couple of hours out of Gothenburg.

These are technologies that I actually use, they exclude web tools and services which I do a separate top ten for. They are generally tools that make my life easier, more efficient and more productive. Having changed jobs in 2013, this has made the list a little more interesting as the technologies I used over the year did change quite a bit. Missing from this list is BT Infinity FTTC which made the list for the last three years, not that it doesn’t exist anymore, I moved in 2012 and am now connected to the only cabinet on my exchange that won’t be upgraded to FTTC. As a result I am stuck on a very slow 1-2Mb ADSL connection. Here are my previous top tens from 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Educational Origami is a blog and a wiki, about 21st Century Teaching and Learning. This wiki is not just about the integration of technology into the classroom, though this is certainly a critical area, it is about shifting our educational paradigm. The world is not as simple as saying teachers are digital immigrants and students digital natives.
