How technology is transforming events

Ross Dawson

One of my speaking bureau just asked me to provide them with a few quick ideas on how technology is changing events, as one of their key clients is having an internal meeting to discuss their future use of technology in events. Sophisticated participant technologies such as SpotMe with features such as people radar, meeting recommendations, consensus maps etc. Twitter network analysis of events – what’s possible?

Education Technology Strategies - Day Two

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

So the Achieving Excellents has four major objectives: - achieving excellence - ensuring equity - promoting well-being - competence We''ve also been partnering with the Council of Directors of Educations (CODE - ''superintendants'') - this boosts what we know about technology and enabling innovations. We also find these technologies are giving students with special needs a new voice, and to connect with their teachers and classmates. So, we see this huge growth in technology.

New Technology Supporting Informal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Abstract We often talk about games, simulations and other events in learning, but these technologies support only episodic learning. Equally important are those technologies that provide a context for these learning episodes, an environment where students and interact and converse among themselves.

Learning as Artifact Creation

George Siemens

Yet, change is happening, often under the radar of enthusiasts because it’s harder to sell a technology product or draw clicks to a website when being nuanced and contextual. In 2004, I tried to respond to the network/digitization alpha trend by describing the new actions and experiences that were available to learners: Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age. Digitization is deceptive in that the deep impact isn’t readily observable.

Introducing Findings

Steven Berlin Johnson

I wrote a little lovesong to Devonthink for the New York Times Book Review in 2004.) This was somewhere post-Friendster but pre-Twitter, so the idea of making these systems more social was very much in the air. A blog post I had written about Devonthink in 2004 had included this little riff: The other thing that would be fascinating would be to open up these personal libraries to the external world.

Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Reusable Learning Resources The initial development of online learning technology began at scale with the development of the learning management system (LMS) in the mid-1990s. Technological systems based on these designs were first developed by the aviation industry, in the form of the AICC specification (Aviation Industry Computer Based Training (CBT) Committee). Additional technologies to support resource discovery and reuse have been developed since then.

Is leadership an emergent property?

Remote Sex: the perfect Valentine’s Day present

Ross Dawson

Our online magazine FutureofSex.net explores this fascinating aspect of the intersection of technology and society.

Now technology can be used to connect people in intimate way they probably never dreamed of.”. The new technologies of remote sex can bring them together over any distance.”.

David Weinberger

The percentage of money coming from small donors is essentially constant from 2004 to 2012, without even considering the superpacs enabled by the Citizens United case. You talk about Obama being the most technological president. So there are forces outside of technology (as you say).

The Role of Open Educational Resources in Personal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Something that’s also received a lot ofattention recently (because he appeared on the TED videos) is the Khan Academy,which is a whole series of YouTube videos on mathematics, physics, and similarscience and technology subjects. And there’s avariety of ways they do this: - Lock-in, for example – if they lock you into acertain technology, such as, say, iTunes, or the Kindle, then the materialwhich would normally be available for free is, within that environment, onlyavailable at a price.

The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

New Technology The development of new technology continues to have an impact on learning. While on the one hand, new technology allows schools and instructors to offer learning in new ways, educators nonetheless continue to face limitations imposed by technology, and sometimes the lack of technology. The employment of data compression technologies has almost been superseded by fibre-optics technology such as lightpath management.

Five Key Questions

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Though some feel distance and online learning will not reduce costs[2], many are looking to new technologies not only to increase access but also to reduce the load borne by government. What makes systems like Ontario's and Finland's worth emulating is the fact that they produce highly competent graduates, capable of excellence not only on standardized international tests but also of flourishing in a complex technologically advanced environment.

These roots are significant because our patterns of use, our ways of embracing or rejecting technology are grounded in this history. This is true of both the technology and the practices. Now technology enables far more than the discussion forums of the late 90’s.

Technology plays a role in this but changing attitudes is the key.
