    Balancing ourOur Connected and
    With the abundance of content, technologies, and overall participatory options, learning institutions need to lead the way to facilitating finding a balance between connected and unconnected life. With technology now at the center of many daily activities, it is important that learners understand how to balance their connected life with other developmental needs. Educational institutions should lead the way to ensure learners do not get lost and absorbed by the abundance of information and technology, and encourage mindful use of technology so that students stay aware of their digital footprint. As education aligns closer with technological trends, teachers will have to promote this balance, encouraging students to feel, digest, reflect, touch, and pursue sensorial experiences that are crucial to developing character and integrity. Finding a balance and guiding learners to personal success should be society's compromise with new generations of digital natives.

    I don't subscribe to the "Digital Native" narrative (see White and Cornu 2011), if it was true, educational institutions wouldn't have to engage with this challenge, but they do. sara.mortsell Dec 6, 2014

    Even if wireless power is an interesting option the development of long-lasting batteries is more important as have been shown by the success in schools with devices that last for at leat a full school day activity. peter.karlberg Dec 7, 2014
    Kahoot Kahoot! is a game-based educational platform. With a new take on introducing a subject and formative assessment - through quizzing, collaboration and presentation of content - Kahoot! initiates peer-led discussions, with students left on the edge of their seats.morten.soby Dec 8, 2014 [Editor's Note: Great insights and example! Combining this with existing RQ1 topic Next Generation Batteries]
    Scalable openOpen Source Virtual Servers and Software
    This is not a huge thing but it will lower cost for online services and content. Setting up a server is also very fast and flexible. Being able to work with virtual servers and open source software will let schools adapt services directly to their needs as opposed to adapting school to some rigid system. Again usability in a sense. martin.claesson Dec 4, 2014 [Editor's Note: This fits in well with the RQ1 topic Open Hardware, so we are adding it there.] Open Source Software
    As above but software related. Cost is always an issue for schools so there's a big potential in open source software. There will be added development cost if you want to adapt things but we can make this work on school level, not just system level. martin.claesson Dec 4, 2014 Open Metadata for Education ch.tii Dec 6, 2014 Having national standards for metadata of learning objects and specific processes in education provides for the integration and building of digital services and tools that can communicate with eachother or other devises, things, and programs. Today SIS TK 450 (https://www.sis.se/informationsteknik-kontorsutrustning/it-till%C3%A4mpningar/sis-tk-450) provides such services, but this work can be greatly enhanced. Should common, open metadata exist, areas such as school drop out, learning analytics, service integration, etc can be greatly increased. Technologies such as these provide for system-level improvements that alter the context for which other services are provided, and thus have a huge potential in changing and developing the educational system. [Editor's Note: Great point! This is missing from the current RQ1 topic Open Hardware, so we will broaden that description for the purposes of voting to include open software.]

    In the years to come we all will be using a more diverse amount of internet resources, apps, services and so on. By having av uniqe identity all that you do will be a part of your "portfolio" and you can easily find it many years after if you need to. Privacy is an issue, but why do you need to be online anonymously? stefan.reppe Dec 7, 2014

    add your responseFederated Identification ch.tii Dec 6, 2014 Skolfederation.se is a Swedish tool. It is an association of organizations that have agreed to trust each electronic identities in their IT systems. A single technical solution makes it possible to automatically translate the login as the user makes locally on their school logins in the connected e-services that the user has access to. The basic idea for an identity federation is that the authentication of users is made as close to the source as possible, in the school's case, preferably when the student or the teacher logs on to the school's internal network. If the school is a member of Skolfederation a function in the network, called Identity Provider, exhibits an electronic certificate that tells that the user is known and accepted by the school. The certificate is then sent via the Identity Federation to the service user wants to log on to, without a separate login. An important point is that sensitive data as user name and password never needs to be sent over the Internet. They are not stored nor the service provider. All that information is sent to the user is trusted and the type of user, it involved. This reduces the risk of sensitive information falling into the wrong hands.
