Keynote at TheNextWeb: The future is motion graphic presentations

Ross Dawson

However one of the most interesting aspects of my keynote is that my visual presentation will consist entirely of motion graphics, 3D, and video – there will be no still images. For many years I have wanted to create an entirely moving graphic presentation.

Technology or preparation?

Clark Quinn

In listening to a recent presentation on the trends affecting the workplace and HR, there was mention about how organizations were using more cognitive technology, AI, etc. But one of the things I wondered was whether all the new, smart technology really would help as much as was intended or needed. And that’s what I started wondering: are we using smart technology to enhance an optimized workforce, or to make up for a lack of adequate preparation?

A Growing Backlash Against the Relentless Advances in Technology?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Given the relentless impact of technology-based innovation on just about all aspects of society, I like reading the views of different people on the subject, especially those outside my own worlds of technology and business.

5 facets of employees’ increasing technology expectations

Ross Dawson

During an extended lunch, a diverse range of ‘celebrities’ including TV personalities, authors, and musicians gave short presentations. I spoke about how the evolving intersection of technology and society is shaping employees’ expectations, particularly in the technology they can use. I wove a broader story about social change and its implications, though I briefly brought out five points on what employees expect from technology.

Education Technology Strategies - Day One

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.

A Useful Framework for Analyzing the Impact of Technology on Jobs

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Last week I discussed a recent Pew Research report on the impact of AI, robotics and other advanced technologies on the future of jobs. These activities are neither candidates for technology substitutions, nor can they be easily complemented with technology-based tools. .

People, Organization, Technology?

Martijn Linssen

More completely, an idea that challenges some basic axioms and cliches that have haunted my PowerPoint/Keynote presentations for years. Headed for my personal trash bin: ‘People, Process, Technology.’ For the rest, technology should enable serendipity rather than predictive process.

Foradian Technologies Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I specialized on online learning, media and collaborative technologies. Since 2001 at NRC I have worked on learning object standards and repositories, content recommender systems, collaborative content authoring technology, and massive open online courses (MOOCs). This means that instead of charting a route through content, course designers need to present options and opportunities for learners to engage, interact, work with resources and create new knowledge.

A quick case for social technologies

Harold Jarche

Social technologies remove artificial organizational boundaries and let knowledge be shared more easily. I create slide presentations so that I have something ready in case I need to quickly review a subject, such as an impromptu client brief. I put this one together as an aid that might be helpful in presenting a few aspects of the positive impact of social technologies in the workplace.

Narrowing Gap between Face-to-Face and Online Presentations

Tony Karrer

It seems that face-to-face and online presenting are becoming more similar. Some aspects: Wireless access is becoming more common in places where presentations occur. A larger percentage of the audience these days brings a laptop to presentations and it seems that the factor of Laptop Distraction is quieting down. In fact, this is on of my favorite things about online presentations (see Examples of eLearning 2.0 I had a recent presentation at a large corporation.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

First of all, there is technological access, ranging from power to Internet access, to mobile delivery. Web course tools, then became mechanisms for collecting, packaging, and presenting these. And there is a lot of talk about the need of the instructor to be present, with the interaction between the student and instructor, or a student and a team of teaching assistants, or whatever. source technology. We use technology that developed, but you don''t need to use that.

Will technology harm or help young people’s brains? A highly nuanced debate

Ross Dawson

Pew Internet & American Life Project’s latest study on the future of the internet examines how young people will be affected by technology. The key will be valuing when to be present and when to unplug. Technology will be so seamlessly integrated into our lives that it will effectively disappear. The line between self and technology is thin today; by then it will effectively vanish. Technology and communications consultant Stowe Boyd.

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

Ross Dawson

A large part of the path forward is in using technologies. There is no substitute for people being physically present in the same place, which allows them to sit down together, converse, relate as humans, and discover more about each other.

The future of events: technology to make presentations interactive and social

Ross Dawson

However many conferences still sport essentially the same format as ever, a series of people presenting on a stage in front of a passive audience. Technology eenables us to re-conceive what a presentation is and can be. A recent article in Sydney Morning Herald on how the new app Zeetings helps “keep audiences awake” looks at Zeetings , “a presentation app that is both interactive and social, and promises to stop audiences slumbering in their chairs.”

David Weinberger

Part of the importance of this is that students at the Kennedy School are agitating for a much strong technology component to their education on the grounds that these days policy makers need to be deeply cognizant of the possibilities technology offers, and of the culture of our new technology development environment. Tomorrow there is an afternoon of discussions sponsored by the student-led Technology for Change group. Todd Park, White House Technology Advisory.

New Technology Supporting Informal Learning

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.

Disruptive Innovation Revisited
