Educational Technology and Change Journal Uitgeverij InnoDoks IICE. Ireland International Conference on Education Rapid Manufacture - 3D Printed Interior Design & Art In these modern times, to stand out from the crowd requires something special, something unique, and something no one else has. Traditional manufacturing techniques do not allow the creation of wild, out-of-this world ideas that today's designer visualise. Utilising the latest technologies, we are able to print a 3D design that matches those once impossible ideas: 3D Printed Lamp Shades 3D Printed Vases & Flower Pots 3D Printed Sculptures 3D Printed Furniture By combining a range of differnet materials, we can produce a product to match your dreams. Whether you need design consultancy or just a final product print, contact us to find out more.

Higher Education in 2020 What will higher education look like in 2020? A new report from the Britain-based Observatory on Borderless Higher Education draws on interviews with 21 international education professionals in an attempt to answer just that. Here are a few of its main findings: On MOOCs (massive open online courses), their impact “on pedagogy and university business models will be profound but an evolutionary shift rather than an avalanche of change.” On mobility, the demand for higher education worldwide will continue to grow, but at a lower rate than in the past 20 years. Growth in international student mobility will not keep pace with the overall growth in demand due to increased capacity in domestic higher education systems and the growth of transnational education opportunities. Furthermore, the rate of growth for transnational education will exceed the growth in international student mobility. China and Malaysia will rise as exporters of higher education.

Education Technology How the world will change in 2043: We’ll turn into bots and upload our memory Thirty years ago, in 1983, people didn’t surf the Internet or talk on cell phones. There was no space tourism, supermarkets didn’t stock their shelves with genetically engineered food. Now look 30 years into the future. Humans outsource evolution to drugs, and cybernetics… “Evolution has come to an end,” says Rohit Talwar, CEO of forecasting company Fast Future. In other words, we’ll try to make ourselves smarter — and more successful in school and at work — by taking drugs. The chance encounter, the love-at-first-sight romance will be history as human interaction is reduced to a minimum Indeed, technology will define our lives to a degree unimaginable today. …and then the robots take over But there’s a darker side, too. The chance encounter, the love-at-first-sight romance will be history as human interaction is reduced to a minimum, a luxury even. Perhaps even more worryingly, AI will put us out of work. The next generation Of course, a country can choose to minimize the role of AI.

Transforming learning spaces with SMART’s interactive displays Innovative, technology-rich classrooms with multiple interactive displays are creating expanded opportunities for student collaboration and learning. We spoke with Dr. Elizabeth Charles, a faculty member at Dawson College and educational researcher associated with the consortium Supporting Active Learning and Technological Innovation in Science Education (SALTISE) and Chris Whittaker, Physics Professor and the Program Coordinator of The Science Program at Dawson College in Montreal Quebec, to learn more about how the implementation of multiple, student dedicated interactive displays is changing the way that they teach, increasing student engagement and improving learning outcomes. Students at Dawson College are collaborating in exciting and enriching ways in a n ew technology-rich classroom designed for student-centered engagement and collaborative learning. In the classroom, students sit in groups of six around oval tables.

College 2020: Higher Education and the Online 2.0 Institutions Abstract College in America will look very different in just a few years, thanks to remarkable innovations taking place in technology and business models in higher education. The advance of Online 2.0 will trigger structural changes in what we mean by a “college education.” Students in the future will be more likely to pursue their studies in an “unbundled” system in which different institutions provide different parts of a student’s higher education experience. Students will be more likely to learn through a blend of online coursework and a residential experience and will likely assemble a guided and rounded transcript of courses and experiences that are independently credentialed, allowing future employers to have a better measure of their skills. College in the not too distant future will look substantially different from college today. Today, much attention is focused on the new concept of MOOCs (massively open online courses) like Coursera and EdX. Online 2.0 College 2020 Costs

Digital Media & Learning Strategy Rationale Our society is in the midst of a reinvention of how knowledge is created, organized, accessed, and shared that has far-reaching implications for institutions of learning – schools, libraries, museums, and more. Digital media offers the promise of a new learning system that acknowledges and nurtures individual talents, skills, and interests. The initiative in Digital Media and Learning aims to drive positive change in American education that builds on the new modes of learning observed among young people using digital media and related tools. Background MacArthur has invested in education since 1980, but direct investment in schools met with mixed results and few clear successes. In 2004, we decided to consider alternative paths. We decided to investigate this topic. Phase 1 (2005–2009). How are young people changing as a result of their use of digital media? The first phase of the work exceeded our expectations. Phase 2 (2009-present). Our Strategic Approach Research and Design
