Video Lessons

Clark Quinn

So, I’ve been creating a ‘deeper elearning’ course for one of the video course providers. But to do this, I had to do some serious learning about creating video. My mentor/colleague/friend showed me (by video chat) his elegant setup. Of course, he’s been doing video for decades. And that’s my error, too, since I have video anxiety almost as bad as my phone anxiety, and dragged my heels until things were too late.

How to Learn Using Technology

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Learning with technology is different from learning with textbooks or learning with classroom instruction. Learning with technology, by contrast, is outcome based. It is defined in terms of skills or competencies, as how to achieve a certain outcome using technology as a tool. There’s a distinctive way to learn using technology. If you can’t, search for videos. Look for articles describing how they do it, and look for videos showing this work.

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For the past several years, the World Economic Forum (WEF) has published an annual list of the Top Ten Emerging Technologies that would be potentially disruptive over the next three to five years while also providing significant benefits to economies and societies. The Top Ten Emerging Technologies 2018 was released in September, 2018. The full report includes a longer, one-page description of each of these technologies.

Chasing Technology Good and Bad

Clark Quinn

The fact is, we’re chasing the wrong technologies. The problem with the technologies we’re chasing is that we’re chasing them from the wrong beginning. I see people chasing microlearning, adaptive learning, video, sims, and more as the answer. The post Chasing Technology Good and Bad appeared first on Learnlets. strategy technologyI’ve been complaining, as part of the myths tour, that everyone wants the magic bullet.

Technology and the Future of Media

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Most everyone will agree that advances in information and communication technologies (ICT) are radically transforming the business landscape. Internet users already spend 20–30% of their time online, mainly engaging with media content… Globalization, deregulation, technological innovation and the convergence of previously separate industries such as media, entertainment, information, and consumer electronics, have created a somewhat turbulent media landscape.”.

New technologies are turning it around, allowing us to constantly monitor ourselves so we can take action before we get sick. Technology is fashion. Technology is not just a fashion accessory, but fashion itself.

Technology Integration in K-12

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I was asked, I''m curious as to what you think the three most important things for new teachers to know about technology integration in k-12? The exact technology doesn''t matter much, and has evolved over the years, from the days of email mailing lists, to community bulletin boards, to social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. You''ll note that I haven''t included any presentation tools, like online video, or talked about having the whole class use blogs or Facebook.

The wonders of technology

It is all too easy to get caught up in the anti technology band waggon and forget what unbelievably clever devices they are - and how lucky we are to have them. I was able to video FaceTime my mum while I was sunbathing floating in the bay on the kayak. During our visit to Torquay at the weekend Apple maps guided us on our route down, avoided traffic build ups, and was, as is often the case, within five minutes of its predicted journey time over a nearly three hour journey.

But they could instead higher fewer people, pay them more, and use technology to make up the difference. But third, and perhaps most critically, you don't actually get any improvements in output using the technological solution. It is in this context we need to read an article like Kentaro Toyama's Can Technology End Poverty? of film or video.

5 uncertainties that will shape the future of wearable technology

Ross Dawson

The rise of wearables is one of the biggest emerging trends in consumer technology. Over the last decade our primary interfaces with connected technology have shifted from fixed computers to devices that we can carry in our pockets or bags. While it is always hard to predict consumer response to new technologies, it is safe to say that any early adopters will take to the next generation of devices with alacrity.

Web Video Conferencing

Clark Quinn

Two of my start-up clients have recently discussed adding video conferencing to their web offering. and now they want to explore providing video chat between the parties. An equivalent example (drawing from my eHarmony days) would be providing video chat in a dating site. On the flip side, I would want the system to "call" the person to see if they are available to receive the video chat and/or show them as "not available" if they can't receive a video chat at that time.

Should Employees Be Incented to Use Social Technologies?

Dan Pontefract

Social collaboration technologies such as internal instances of blogging, micro-blogging, video sharing, discussion forums, idea sharing, wikis, and so on are all key aspects of being collaborative. Which brings me to the question, “ Should employees be incented to use social technologies ?”. Competition – as opposed to using social technologies to enact collaborative behaviour, it may turn ugly and become a competition amongst employees.

Digital video has exploded over the last 8 years however that has, in the main, being a complement to TV, with TV viewing eroding surprisingly slowly compared to earlier forecasts.

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

Ross Dawson

Technology eenables us to re-conceive what a presentation is and can be. in 2009 quoted me extensively on the future of events (the original story has been taken down but the quotes are still available online here ): “In a world of instant access to information and videos of the world’s best speakers, it makes no sense to sit in a darkened room and watch a series of talking heads all day,” says Mr Dawson. Some events today have innovative formats and strong audience participation.

Prediction: Video-conferencing will help drive increased business travel

Trends in the Living Networks

My keynote focused on the major economic, technological, and social shifts under way and how they impact business travel and how it is managed in organizations. Clearly a particularly pointed issue in the world of business travel today is the rise of video-conferencing, which many companies in recent years have latched onto as a substitute for travel, largely for cost-saving. As I wrote, one of the critical aspects for immersive video communication is a feeling of eye contact.
