These four basic influences are (1) geospatial technologies (GIS data, GPS chips, RFID chips, Bluetooth, 2D and 3D bar codes, sensors, and NFC / near-field communication (radio frequency technologies); (2) mobile search (visual search and image capture); (3) social networking, and (4) 3G and 4G networking in terms of wireless technologies—which culminate in location-based learning services. Personally, I am hoping that this year will involve some spatialized augmented-reality projects. Wiki Mania!

IGNATIA WEBS Blogphilosophy: share your learning story: formal education shackled me, so I got out …
| WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21, 2010
My hypothesis is: some people feel that formal education shackles them, and a lot of the time this happens to learners from less fortunate classes, as they do not see or learn the benefits from higher education, nor its unspoken rules and social interactions. Formal education does not lead up to much for a big portion of its content. After leaving school (university, high school…) the learners often lack the skills to truly be prepared for the working world. There are many hypotheses on why that is actually the case. So what do learners do that feel shackled by formal education? got out.

IGNATIA WEBS Blogphilosophy: Education makes the world a worse place
| WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2012
Social science has many frameworks, theories, even pilot studies to prove its potential realization. These last few days were pushing the truth into my face again: education does not change the world. In fact: it helps destroying it. So why bother? Why do I put so much time and effort in researching education? It is not about Israël, it could just as easily be North Korea, China, Zimbabwe, waffles baking Belgium, … or the tiny country of Andorra for all I care. The nations never die, its citizens die, the children die. Annihilating the powerless is the best way to keep people down.
