Emerging technology multimedia presentation

  1. 1. Brenda Rutherford <ul><li>Emerging and Future Technologies </li></ul><ul><li>Obsolete Technology Overhead Projector </li></ul><ul><li>Emerging Technology Elmo Projector </li></ul><ul><li>Walden University </li></ul><ul><li>Emerging and Future Technologies EDUC - 7108 – 1 </li></ul>
  2. 2. Overhead Projector <ul><li>The overhead projector became obsolete during the late 1990’s as the ELMO Technology became available to many school systems. Initially the cost excluded many systems that could not afford them. The emergence of the ELMO coincided with the new wave of interactive learning systems that continue to evolve. Teachers played an important role in the adoption of the ELMO in classrooms which was a major reason that contributed to the obsolescence of the Overhead Projector. </li></ul>
  3. 3. ELMO Projector <ul><li>The Elmo Projector is an emerging technology that is being used currently as the enhanced technology that replaces the overhead projector. Projectors are being replaced by the ELMO Multimedia Projector. I would definitely integrate this technology into my classroom to enhance learning, creativity, and to keep pace with the rapid progression of technology </li></ul>
  4. 4. Obsolete Technology Overhead Projector
  5. 5. Emerging Technology Elmo (Electricity Light Machine Organization)
  6. 6. <ul><li>Enhances: What does this technology do that is new? </li></ul><ul><li>The overhead projector started to become popular in classroom use in the late 1960’s and continued to be used through the 1980’s. Initially, they were used by military and police personnel for training purposes in the 1940’s. </li></ul><ul><li>Obsoletes: What does this technology replace? </li></ul><ul><li>The overhead projector replaced the slide projector which was used during the 1950’s and 1960’s. The overhead projector improved the ability to show data on transparencies on a white screen to the entire classroom, while making edits during the presentation with markers or pens. </li></ul><ul><li>Retrieves/rekindles: What does this technology bring to mind (or retrieve) from the past? </li></ul><ul><li>The overhead projector brings to mind assignments that were presented during the k-12 school days of the 1960’s through 1970’s. The technology used a bulb which would get very hot after the projector was used for extended periods of time. The teacher would always have to turn it off and let it cool before it could be safely used again. </li></ul><ul><li>Reverses: What might replace this technology in the future, or what might it cause to occur? </li></ul><ul><li>Document Cameras and Interactive Whiteboards have replaced the overhead projector. The idea of using overhead projectors was great, and the newer models of cameras still use the same original idea, but have improved capabilities and functions that really puts them head and shoulders above in the classroom. </li></ul>Overhead Projector Tetrad
  7. 7. <ul><li>Enhances: What does this technology do that is new? </li></ul><ul><li>The attention; math demonstrations -Saves time and money ELMO Projector enhances Web 2.0 and allows teachers to use more effective methods of video projection in the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>-No special paper or pens is required -Connects to video projector, computers, and electronic white boards -Capable of audio and video recording -Displays three-dimensional objects -Freeze-button-to pause images -Captures students -Displays moving pictures </li></ul><ul><li>Obsoletes: What does this technology replace? </li></ul><ul><li>The technology replaces the overhead projector in the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Retrieves/rekindles: What does this technology bring to mind (or retrieve) from the past? </li></ul><ul><li>The ELMO technology brings to mind the obsolete projectors from the past that were limited in their ability to display video, and did not have the ability to produce audio. </li></ul><ul><li>Reverses: What might replace this technology in the future, or what might it cause to occur? </li></ul><ul><li>Smart phones are the technology that might replace the ELMO. They have more capabilities in video and audio. They have the ability to incorporate all the applications into one small unit which is definitely an advantage in the classroom and in business. The only negative is cost and affordability. </li></ul>Elmo Tetrad
  8. 8. Six Forces: Evolutionary Technologies on Obsolete Technology’s Original Emergence <ul><li>Overhead Projectors evolved from slide projectors in the 1950’s, so it is identified as a evolutionary technology. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Six Forces: Evolutionary Technologies on Obsolete Technology <ul><li>Evolutionary technologies are useful in explaining why the overhead projector became obsolete </li></ul><ul><li>Computer Projectors - the fully integrated digital data projector came into existence in the early 1990's and served primarily as a computer display projector for business, education and training. </li></ul><ul><li>It essentially combined the overhead projector and the digital projection panel into one device making it considerably smaller and more easily transported. As is true with most new technologies, the first offerings of the computer projector were big, heavy and expensive with image quality that pales in comparison to today's projectors. As the computer projectors got smaller, lighter, and cheaper they became popular with mobile presenters. Today data projectors are used in a wide range of applications including mobile presentations, conference rooms, classrooms, training, gaming, simulation, control rooms, museums, and retail advertising. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Six Forces: Evolutionary Technologies on Obsolete Technology <ul><li>The convergence of the latest visual technologies in the classroom is an undeniable value to the new evolution of teaching. Multimedia projectors bring back many of the features found on the opaque projector, slide projector and overhead projector through the use of document cameras. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Six Forces: Rhymes of History on Obsolete Technology’s Original Emergence <ul><li>The original emergence of the overhead projector represents a rhyme of history. The original emergence rhymed with the need for the military to expand its training programs. The overhead projector allowed training to be interactive with large groups. It allowed text and images to be viewed by small groups simultaneously instead of using printed material. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Six Forces: Rhymes of History on Obsolete Technology <ul><li>Rhymes of History is useful to explain why the overhead projector became obsolete. Just like all inventions, sooner or later there will be an upgrade to a better quality innovation of that particular product. This rhyme of history happened when the overhead projector was deemed obsolete because of the emergence of multimedia cameras and projectors. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Six Forces: Rhymes of History on Emerging Technology <ul><li>Rhymes of History is useful to explain how the Elmo Projector replaced the Overhead Projector. The emergence of the Elmo rhymed with education the same way overhead projectors emerged with the military. The improvement in imaging and presentation graphics and video files makes it an essential tool for classroom and group learning. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Six Forces: Disruptive Technology on Obsolete Technology’s Original Emergence <ul><li>The original emergence of the Overhead Projector was a Disruptive Technology that impacted the Opaque Projector which required a movie screen. The Overhead projector allowed the user to show images on a wall or on a screen. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Six Forces: Disruptive Technology on Obsolete Technology <ul><li>The Overhead Projector was a Disruptive Technology that became obsolete because it was Disrupted by projectors that offered flexible and interactive features that allowed the user to be more creative in viewing video and graphic presentations. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Six Forces: Disruptive Technology on Emerging Technology <ul><li>The emergence of the Elmo Projector is considered a Disruptive Technology because it replaced the Overhead Projector market. Even though the Elmo is a more expensive projector, its features outweigh the added cost in how it enables the educator to present information interactively within the classroom. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Six Forces: Science Fiction on Obsolete Technology’s Original Emergence <ul><li>The emergence of the overhead projector was not influenced by science fiction. Science fiction at that time was not focused around projectors as a learning tool, but was focused on planet exploration and space travel to other galaxies and stars. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Six Forces: Science Fiction on Obsolete Technology <ul><li>Science Fiction has contributed to the reason that overhead projectors have become obsolete. Devices such as handheld laser projectors, and laser video projectors which have the capacity to illuminate graphics on virtually any surface are innovations that evolved from science fiction media. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Six Forces: Science Fiction on Emerging Technology <ul><li>Science Fiction is not useful to explain the emergence of Elmo Projectors. The emergence as a classroom tool was due to a need to have projection devices that allowed for more interaction between the learner and the teacher. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Six Forces: Increasing Returns on Obsolete Technology’s Original Emergence <ul><li>Increasing Returns does explain how the overhead projector became obsolete. At the time when the overhead projector was introduced, the opaque projector was also being used for presentations. The invention of photocopies caused the overhead projector to move into the education sector and leave the Opaque projector behind. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Six Forces: Increasing Returns on Obsolete Technology <ul><li>The Overhead Projector and the Opaque Projector emerged together in the early 1940’s. Both evolved together over the years. Increasing Returns is useful to explain obsolescence of the Overhead Projector. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Six Forces: Increasing Returns on Emerging Technology <ul><li>The Elmo Projector is an emerging technology that is currently entering the classroom as the projection camera of choice. It has been limited to some teachers because of cost. Increasing return is not useful to explain the emergence. </li></ul>
  23. 23. Six Forces: Red Queens on Obsolete Technology’s Original Emergence <ul><li>Red Queens does not explain the original emergence of the overhead projector. The overhead projector was an extension of existing projector technology at that time and had a gradual development over the years to its current state. </li></ul>
  24. 24. Six Forces: Red Queens on Obsolete Technology <ul><li>Red Queens does not explain the reason the overhead projector became obsolete. The overhead projector became obsolete because of better projection technology being developed and installed on computers. </li></ul>
  25. 25. Six Forces: Red Queens on Emerging Technology <ul><li>The Elmo Projector technology was developed to improve and eventually replaced the overhead projector because of its innovative design and function ability. Red Queens is not useful to explain the emergence of the Elmo Projector. </li></ul>
  26. 26. Speculation on the future of Elmo <ul><li>Elmo Projectors have been identified as the new wave in the classroom for teachers. Elmo can be used as a digital camera in the classroom. This means that books and other materials will be illuminated by placing them on the screen. Transparencies are no longer a necessity. Elmo will continue to be relevant for many years to come because it is designed so that newer applications can be added to it without reinventing the wheel. I don’t anticipate a technology that will make it obsolete. The only challenge that I foresee is if a competitor is able to produce a similar technology that can be purchased and used at a significantly lower cost. </li></ul>
