  • Open content, also expected to reachmainstream use in the next twelve months, is thecurrent form of a movement that began nearlya decade ago, when schools like MIT began tomake their course content freely available. Today,there is a tremendous variety of open content,and in many parts of the world, open contentrepresents a profound shift in the way studentsstudy and learn. Far more than a collection offree online course materials, the open contentmovement is a response to the rising costs ofeducation, the desire for access to learning inareas where such access is difficult, and anexpression of student choice about when andhow to learn.
  • Mobile computing, by which we mean use of the network-capable devices students are already carrying, is already established on manycampuses, although before we see widespread use, concerns about privacy, classroom management, and access will need to beaddressed. At the same time, the opportunity is great; virtually all higher education students carry some form of mobile device, and thecellular network that supports their connectivity continues to grow. An increasing number of faculty and instructional technology staffare experimenting with the possibilities for collaboration and communication offered by mobile computing. Devices from smart phonesto netbooks are portable tools for productivity, learning, and communication, offering an increasing range of activities fully supported byapplications designed especially for mobiles.
  • 1) The abundance of resources and relationships made easily accessible via the Internet is increasingly challenging us to revisit our rolesas educators in sense-making, coaching, and credentialing.2) People expect to be able to work, learn, and study whenever and wherever they want to3) The technologies we use are increasingly cloud-based, and our notions of IT support are decentralized.4) The work of students is increasingly seen as collaborative by nature, and there is more crosscampus collaboration between departments.The Horizon Report
  • Youth aged 8 - 18 spend more than 7.5hrs a day (equivalent of a work day) using a smart phone, computer, tv or other electronic device - 7 days a weekLess than five years ago the above number was less than 6.5hrs per dayThe above times do not include daily use of computer for school work, texting time (1.5hrs) or talking on their cellphone (30mins)Taking in to account multi-tasking, on average those studied can pack 11hrs of media information in to those 7.5hrs per day! In 2004, multi-tasking brought it up to 8.5hrs.Youth media consumption has grown far more in the last five years than in the previous five year period: 1999-2004Contrary to public opinion that media usage displaces exercise, the heaviest media users reported spending a similar amount of time exercising or doing physical activity as the lighter media users of the same age (a particularly positive finding I would say!)Almost 9 out of 10 users surveyed reported participating in some physical exercise the previous day Heavy media users report getting slightly lower grades in school than lighter usersOverall most users reported being very content and having lots of friends. But those users that felt less personal contentedness tended to be heavier media users. ( of users surveyed reported sending text messages during the day and this averaged out at 118 texts on a typical day
  • The outlook of those we teach has changed, and thus the way in which we teach must change. The world in which we all live has changed, and thus thecontent we teach must change. The industrial age has become the information age, and thus the way we organize our institutions must change, as must themeaning we attach to the terms “student,” “teacher,” and “alumni.” The challenge will be for educators and higher education institutions to incorporatethe information-age mindset of today’s learners into our programs so as to create communities of lifelong learners (Frand, 2000)
  • Manovich (2001): “As distribution of all forms of culture becomes computer-based, we are increasingly ‘interfacing’ to predominately cultural data–texts, photographs, films, music, virtual environments. In short, we are no longer interfacing to a computer, but to culture encoded in digital form”

    • 22. Just a metaphor
      Not all youth are born digital
      Generational profiling excludes those who are not socially or financially privileged
      Generational differences do exist – but they are not that simplistic
      Youth that immersed in technology might master to the tools quicker. But mastery is not necessarily linked to age (look at the masters of digital technology in silicon valley)
