Star Trek in the classroom

Legendary director J.J Abrahams hosted a TED Talk “The Mystery Box" to inspire students and teachers in the classroom - curiosity, innovative thinking and technology fuelled his career, all of which are adopted in classrooms of today:

Encourage curiosity - cultivate mystery to engage with students and promote creativity

Mystery is the catalyst for imagination - children who wonder realise their full potential if given the opportunity

Inspire with tech - technology in the classroom enables learners to explore and develop their ideas. And even if the technology in the classroom isn’t the latest and greatest, it doesn’t matter - children will find a way to make it work.

That’s equivalent to the total amount of data the human race generated between when we first started recording data and 2003. We were agape at that one too, but this fantastic Wikibon infographic is helping us understand how that breaks down by generation. Which generation are you in? Does it reflect your own travels in the digital universe?

Leon Li, product manager for our mighty Future Technologies team in China, was on hand to document what went down.
