Technology Architecture

A few years ago, I created a diagram to capture a bit about the technology to support learning ( Big ‘L’ Learning ). I was revisiting that diagram for some writing I’m doing, and thought it needed updating. strategy technology

Responses to Questions on Technology and Schools

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

How are the new technologies revolutionizing education, especially at schools? It depends very much what technologies are being discussed and what school system is being discussed. As well, the impact of new technologies outside schools is having a pervasive impact within schools.

The Future of Customer Service: Using technology to increase both efficiency and relationship strength

One of the key areas I covered was the shift in customer service channels, using a diagram I originally created for a keynote and supporting article on Creating the Future of Customer Relationships. A large part of the path forward is in using technologies.

2015 top 10 tools for learning

Clark Quinn

Omnigraffle: the diagramming tool I use, and diagramming is a great way for me to make sense of things. Not making the top 10 but useful tools include Google Maps for directions, Yelp for eating, Good Reader as a way to read and annotate PDFs, and Safari, where I’ve bookmarked a number of sites I read every day like news (ABC and Google News), information on technology, and more. meta-learning technology

Metacognitive Activity?

Clark Quinn

Naturally, I started diagramming. So you could write or present, diagram (see what I’m doing here?), How do we know when you’re explaining the thinking behind a diagram (here it’d be about my choice of vertical dimension, and spreading things below and above)?

Reimagining Learning

However, I was growing through the diagrams that I’d created on my iPad, and discovered one that I’d frankly forgotten. For all I can recall, the origin of the diagram may have been an attempt to contextualize Tin Can in a broad context!).

I reckon these are good things to be consistent, but while I sometimes include diagrams, I haven’t been rabid about including images. meta-learning technologySo I was talking with a colleague, who pointed out that my site wasn’t as optimized for finding as it could be, and he recommended a solution. Which led to an ongoing series of activities that have some learnings both at the technical and learning side. So I thought I’d share my learnings about sites.

Sharing pointedly or broadly

It’s like a shared whiteboard, with technology support to facilitate things like editing, formatting, versioning, and more. You can write documents, or adjust tables and formulas, or edit diagrams together. social strategy technologyTwice recently, I’ve been confronted with systems that claim to be collaboration platforms. And I think distributed collaboration is one of the most powerful options we have for accelerating our innovation.

Building a Culture of Continuous Learning

In other words, simply improving traditional training approaches – even introducing learning technologies into the classroom model – will not achieve the improvements needed. A diagram from the study (below) illustrates this second point. Most people get it.

Naturally, I diagrammed it (surprise, right?). For Learning, it’s about blending learning across a variety of elements: technologies, interaction methodologies, etc, to support successful outcomes.

Managing Learning?

Charles Jennings

One of which is “if learning is managed by the learner, what will the technologies that support her look like in the next 3, 5, 10 years?” Of course we will need technology to support learning. Donald Taylor recently published an article titled ‘ What does ‘LMS’ mean today ?’.
