    With a continuously growing workforce and the increasingly diverse variety of job roles that accompany this expansion, the need for on-the-job training is not only crucial for a business to continue running operations effectively, but to also develop alongside new technological and industry-specific trends.

Best VR (Virtual Reality) Headsets 2018 - Lab Tested Reviews by PCMag.com - 0 views

  • Modern VR headsets fit under one of two categories: Mobile or tethered.
  • You can't count on accurate position tracking with mobile headsets.
  • three-degrees-of-freedom (3DOF)
  • ...8 more annotations...
  • To accurately track your position, you need a headset with six-degrees-of-freedom (6DOF)
  • dedicated display in the headset instead of your smartphone, as well as built-in motion sensors and an external camera tracker, drastically improves both image fidelity and head tracking.
  • Rift and the Vive both need pretty powerful PCs
  • Standalone VR headsets
  • The distinction between virtual reality and mixed reality is so far dubious, but it indicates an integration of augmented reality (AR) technology using cameras on the helmet.
  • Google's Daydream is similar to Cardboard in concept. You still put your phone in an inexpensive headset (the $99 Daydream View), and it functions as your display thanks to a set of lenses that separate the screen into two images.
  • A pairable remote
  • What About Augmented Reality?
  •  
    Most teachers won't be able to afford the best and brightest VR headsets. We tend to focus on building units that all of our kids can use. However, if you want to be right on top of the event horizon, take a peak at the cutting edge and dream.

Defining OER-Enabled Pedagogy | Distance-Educator.com - 0 views

  •  
    "The term "open pedagogy" has been used in a variety of different ways over the past several decades. In recent years, its use has also become associated with Open Educational Resources (OER). The wide range of competing definitions of open pedagogy, together with its semantic overlap with another underspecified term, open educational practices, makes it difficult to conduct research on the topic of open pedagogy. In making this claim we do not mean to cast doubt on the potential effectiveness of the many pedagogical approaches labeled open. In this article, rather than attempting to argue for a canonical definition of open pedagogy, we propose a new term, "OER-enabled pedagogy," defined as the set of teaching and learning practices that are only possible or practical in the context of the 5R permissions that are characteristic of OER. We propose criteria used to evaluate whether a form of teaching constitutes OER-enabled pedagogy and analyze several examples of OER-enabled pedagogy with these criteria."

The challenge and promise of learning organisations - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    There is a great deal that I like about this description of humanity at its best from Ryan & Deci. It is both a goal to be achieved and an indicator of conditions which are required for us to fulfil our potential. While the focus of this statement is on the actions of the individual we can see how society might act to deny individuals the opportunities to lead such an inspired and agentic life. I like to imagine what a school might be like if every individual who plays a part in its functioning strove to extend themselves, master new skills and apply their talents responsibly. 

    Maybe schools would be like the 'learning organisations' described by Peter Senge.

How might we develop self-regulated learners? - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    A common question is how do we facilitate the development of independent, self-regulating learners. With an increased focus on the development of dispositional models for learning where the skills and mindset of the learner are crucial, how do we ensure that our learners move from requiring external regulation to a model of internal regulation?

Massive Online Open Courses Can Be Better Than Traditional Teaching Methods - 0 views

  •  
    "teach one of the world's most popular MOOCs (massive online open courses), "Learning How to Learn," with neuroscientist Terrence J. Sejnowski, the Francis Crick Professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. The course draws on neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and education to explain how our brains absorb and process information, so we can all be better students. Since it launched on the website Coursera in August of 2014, nearly 1 million students from over 200 countries have enrolled in our class. We've had cardiologists, engineers, lawyers, linguists, 12-year-olds, and war refugees in Sudan take the course. We get emails like this one that recently arrived: "I'll keep it short. I've recently completed your MOOC and it has already changed my life in ways you cannot imagine. I just turned 29, am in the middle of a career change to computer science, and I've never been more excited to learn.""

Factfulness (the book) - 0 views

  •  
    "When asked simple questions about global trends―what percentage of the world's population live in poverty; why the world's population is increasing; how many girls finish school―we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess teachers, journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers."

Why I want to stop talking about the "developing" world | Bill Gates - 0 views

  •  
    "I talk about the developed and developing world all the time, but I shouldn't.

    My late friend Hans Rosling called the labels "outdated" and "meaningless." Any categorization that lumps together China and the Democratic Republic of Congo is too broad to be useful. But I've continued to use "developed" and "developing" in public (and on this blog) because there wasn't a more accurate, easily understandable alternative-until now."
