  • I am in my third semester at FHSU, directly from Shell global oil and the US State Department. Tenure track- deep into research on the impact of social media on education, business and the future of communications. Prepared for the Association for Business Communication Southwestern United States. Presented March 15, 2013 for the session entitled, “New Age Technology in the Classroom”.
  • Because of the deluge of change almost all of us face, learners don’t need to be convince of the truth of this statement.
  • Technology is the primary mover of societal change. It took the railroads 50 years to “open up the west”- create cites and downs beyond the river system and to destroy Native American culture and lifestyle. It takes a few seconds to broadcast new tools, ideas from conferences and business meetings.
  • I have been exploring this avenue for three semesters now, along with my colleagues at FHSU.
  • The canvas background can be changed, different color notes can be used. You can upload video, photographs, documents, audio files. One visual source for all- in a blended setting or online courses.
  • Students created YouTube videos to answer the question. Some simply posted links and needed to be shown how insert video directly. Only one student did not have a laptop with a web cam and cleverly used his spouses smart phone to create a series of three short videos. (He is moving into the iPhone world soon!)
  • They worked from a team charter template, created a communication plan spreadsheet, and located all the sources of background information as a pre-read for faculty. Links were sent out from the Provost’s office.
  • There are currently two types of apps: native and mobile web. A native app is an application for a specific mobile device and is installed directly onto the device. These apps are traditionally available, free or for cost, at an iPhone (iOS) or Android online store. A mobile web app is an Internet enabled app that is accessed from the mobile device’s web browser, such as Safari on an iPhone. The site is then bookmarked on the phone for rapid access
