Barwick in late 2007.
  • Questioning whether or not smartphones and tablets belong in education or are valuable is like questioning whether or not pens and notebooks are valuable in education and belong. There was time students got a piece of slate and some chalk…. Mobile devices are here – in 2020, do you think a third grader will no what life is like without a smart board or a tablet in their class room??????????? So we can fight it or we can embrace it. Instead of asking is it valuable? How about how do we use this tool in a valuable way? What can it do for the classroom, the student, the teacher?
  • Not a new concept, it started with laptops – but is becoming a bigger issue because of the growth in mobile devices and ownership of multiple devices Students have device and are getting devices Remember the 5 tech trends happening – students expect to use the devices How does this affect institutions, colleges, schools?? There are advantages and disadvantages – many schools are excited and embracing this concept – less maintenance and support – can reduce computer labs-other schools are fearful because of security and bandwidth/network requirementshttp://www.educatorstechnology.com/2012/07/what-teachers-need-to-know-about-byod.htmlhttp://www.v3.co.uk/v3-uk/news/2273970/hp-discover-enterprise-must-prepare-for-byod-generation-of-staff
  • The idea of gamification is a simple one: to motivate and engage people by applying game design techniques and mechanics to non-game situations (like education)We have a generation of individuals entering college and the work-force that have grown up playing games and are fascinated and engaged by games. Using some of those characteristics to engage and motivate is a natural progressionhttp://www.theknowledgeguru.com/games-and-gamification-research-from-the-elearning-guild/Organizations are starting to invest major $$ into gamesThe most powerful case study found in the report tells the story of McDonalds Japan, which invested $2.2 million USD to develop a Nintendo DS game for front-line staff. McDonalds gave two devices to each store and had new hires train on basic food prep and service tasks as part of their orientation training.The result? Training time was cut in half, and that adds up to major savings for a company with high employee turnover.
  • Mozilla Open Badges are not proprietary — they use free software and an open technical standard. That means that any organization can create, issue and verify digital badges, and any user can earn, manage and display these badges all across the web.Many LMS are building in badges – many are integrating with Mozilla openbadges – it’s a standard framework that is open source and let’s your users keep and implement their badges other places WordPress and twitter have api’s for displaying badges More companies like Facebook, LinkedIn are in the process of providing the abilityhttp://campustechnology.com/articles/2013/06/20/how-badges-really-work-in-higher-education.aspxDigital badges are getting a serious look on many university campuses because they may allow students to demonstrate a greater variety of skills. "A diploma says as much about the institution you attended as it does about you," notes Bill Wisser, instructional designer in the Graduate School of Education (HGSE) at Harvard University (MA). "A portfolio gets more granular, and badges can show individual records of accomplishment.“On its surface, a digital badge is nothing more than an image file encoded with metadata, or information, that includes all the data needed to understand the badge, such as which organization awarded it, what skill or achievement it represents, if and when it expires, and links to evidence for why it was awarded.

  • The general idea behind adaptive learning is that you are taking advantage of an internet based environment to assess each individual user based on their stage, not age and respond with appropriate learning materials and then more testing, once they achieve a level, then new material is available to them. “adaptive learning” -- a method that purports to give instructors real-time intelligence on how well each of their students is getting each concept.Read more: http://www.insidehighered.com/news/2013/01/25/arizona-st-and-knewtons-grand-experiment-adaptive-learning#ixzz2huI8NvyW Inside Higher Ed http://www.impatientoptimists.org/Posts/2013/04/2013-The-Year-of-Adaptive-LearningPredicted that most of the next-generation LMS will focus on adaptive learning environments. An intelligent tutoring system is computer software designed to simulate a human tutor’s behavior and guidancehttp://www.educause.edu/library/resources/7-things-you-should-know-about-intelligent-tutoring-systemsBlackboard and many of the major Course Management Systems are working to build in adaptive learning tools and features. Several publishers are building online components that are adaptive learning based platforms using their content. There are tons of mobile apps that are built on this concept.
  • an ecosystem of technologies monitoring the status of physical objects, capturing meaningful data, and communicating that information through IP networks to software applications. - See more at: http://blog.atlasrfidstore.com/internet-of-things-and-rfid#sthash.u7AEb2de.dpufThere are many more devices than people connected to the Internet, but it is the ability to interact with us that makes these devices valuable and what is driving estimates of 15 billion connected devices by the middle of the decade. Ford Sync, connected thermostat – set the temp from your phone, how about a fire/CO2 alarm that sends you a txt if the battery is dying or if it’s going offhttp://nest.com/ - these products now available in places like home depot – initial support and research started in a Google lab – the thermostat is considered a learning thermostat – it adaptsMost people leave the house at one temperature and forget to change it. So the Nest Learning Thermostat learns your schedule, programs itself and can be controlled from your phone. Teach it well and the Nest Thermostat can lower your heating and cooling bills up to 20%.http://mashable.com/category/internet-of-things/http://mashable.com/2013/09/16/smart-home-automation/http://readwrite.com/tag/internet-of-things#awesm=~okh9TXzr80Fej6
  • In computing, a natural user interface, or NUI, or Natural Interface is the common parlance used by designers and developers of human-machine interfaces to refer to a user interface that is (1) effectively invisible, or becomes invisible with successive learned interactions, to its users, and (2) is based on nature or natural elements. The word natural is used because most computer interfaces use artificial control devices whose operation has to be learned.http://www.youtube.com/user/leapmotionDemo: TED Talk – 8:41 - http://www.ted.com/talks/john_underkoffler_drive_3d_data_with_a_gesture.html Windows surface – kinnect are examples of natural user interfaceEye Tribe: http://theeyetribe.com/

  • A global leader in desktop 3D printing, MakerBot has thus far sold more than 13,000 machines to engineers, designers and other early adopters since its 2009 founding. Already a $1.3 billion-industry, 3D printing is projected to grow 300 percent over the next decade—to $5.2 billion by 2020.http://www.technologyreview.com/featuredstory/513716/additive-manufacturing/ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/10372598/A-vision-of-how-3D-printing-may-change-the-world-unveiled-Science-Museum.htmlhttp://mashable.com/category/3d-printing/http://www.wired.com/design/2012/09/formlabs-creates-a-low-cost-light-based-3-d-printer/http://www.pjstar.com/news/x1037510853/Peoria-simulation-center-exploring-the-potential-of-3-D-printinghttp://www.peoriamagazines.com/ibi/2013/jan/three-dimensional-demand
  •  funding method where common people like you and me, henceforth the crowd, fund a personal or business project with their own money – usually a new idea It’s not a donation because the person, team or business offers something in return – you get something base on the amount you give – anything from a pen, t-shirt, free 1st product, get to be a beta tester, to a piece of the company or return of money with interest – just dependsCrowd funding also works because – if your little bit isn’t met by the crowd to get the total goal – project doesn’t happen and your money is returned to you
  • http://mashable.com/2013/10/13/google-quantum-computing-video/http://www.dwavesys.com/en/dw_homepage.htmlThe laws of quantum physics, which govern the microscopic world, allow bits of matter to be in two states simultaneously.Quantum computing combines these two ideas, allowing us to put bits of information into their 0 and 1 states at the same time. This process allows quantum computers to consider and manipulate all combinations of bits simultaneously, making quantum computation powerful and fast.This new era won’t be based on solid state physics, the science that led to transistors, but on quantum information, the strange rules that govern the sub-atomic world. Two Nobel Prizes were awarded for discoveries in the field just this past year.http://www.forbes.com/sites/gregsatell/2013/02/02/the-next-digital-paradigm/
