  • Topics have been chosen based on Survey Monkey, there are particular reasons for choosing these particular technologies and not othersAlso acknowledge that while these may be of interest to many, not all will have an equal interest for all, and there may be some glaring omissions…perhaps intentionally, perhaps unintentionally…but there’s only so much that can be pushed into a specific time frame..There will however, be an online version of the class and several possible variations where small segments can be completed on 1-2 topics at a time, where attendees can pick and choose topics of greateast interest and relevance. Looking at getting the Geeks class online in the summer. Stay tuned, if interested.
  • 5 minutes
  • 3 minSo, first, the class will be based on content that I will present, but I’d like to think of myself as a facilitator more than an instructor. I think that we all have experiences to share and we can all learn from each other. I’m very likely not the most experienced person in the room when it comes to all of these technologies—maybe not any of them. But, all are of extreme interest to me and I look forward to seeing how these technologies and tools will influence our personal and professional lives, how they will come into being and someday be replaced by another technology—partially or fully in the future. Most of the content gathered here has been taken from my own experiences or the experiences and ideas of others. I’ve used the most relevant, professional, and most effective resources I’m able to find---most of which can be arrtibuted to others—and I’ve done my best to reference others’ work when used. So, during the presentation—especially with regards to the AR section, we’ll lean on external resources including video to view as examples of how the technology works because the video may demonstrate better than I’m able to—either because the technology is difficult to visualize otherwise, or the product/materials for the technology is not available in order to facilitate a hands-on live demonstration. The topics chosen for today’s class were selected based on perceived interest, relevance in the library setting of this group, and pre-course assessment (if done)
  • Gartner is a company the charts the rise and fall, so to speak of over 1900 technologies to provide intelligence to business, individuals, organizations that need to make decisions based on the maturity of various emerging tech markets….what’s interesting is that technologies travel such a line and can be measured accordingly…but also that before the slope of enlightenment and plateau of productivity, comes the peak of inflated expectations, and trough of disillusionment…which should cause us to pause or at least proceed patiently when accepting the latest technology—especially when adopting for a organization or dedicating significant resources..Garnter puts together analysis for specific types of technologies as well…open source software, content mangagement, semi-conductors & electronics…just another possible tool to consider when attempting to objectively assessing the impact a technology is having, but more importantly will have
  • See QR codes popping up everywhere with a lot of interesting, innovative applications…both in and out of the library…we will talk about some of both and then take some time to create our own…Here’s a QR code example that….(insert advertising example pic)
  • A QR code (short for Quick Response) is a type of barcode that contains data that can be read by the camera on a phone. Most smartphones today come with software that allows you to download a QR code reader to it. For instance, the iPhone has the iTunes store where you can download ‘apps’ or applications for your phone. Once you download a QR code reader, the camera on the phone acts like a scanner and the camera “reads” the barcode. Unlike a typical barcode, additional information can be embedded into this code.
  • Media example..U.K. super market chain owner…placed big food images on subway walls in S Korea…user could scan items, which would then be added to virtual shopping cart and processed after virtual checkout..groceries were then delivered to consumers, QR Code usersVideo—start at :50
  • Another consumer-specific example…JC Penny customers could record a 60 sec greeting to gift recipients, then attach to purchased items via QR code…to later be “opened” by giftee
  • QR codes used for activities..scavenger hunts, surveys, asessmentsPromote use of electronic journals and e-resources within the physical collection
  • QR Codes as part of the catalog record….each item/record has a QR code…user scans and takes bib information to find materials on shelf…Example from Kentucky State University
  • E-book collection into physical collection –University of Pittsburgh Health Sciences Library
  • So, ….step by step slide to create…along with considerations of why
  • Instructions for creating QR code..step by step…1-2 person activity—create your own with specific use in mindTake time to let participants share their work
  • Now, who has a mobile device--smartphone, etc? So those of you with devices, download free QR reader. If you have one, or once you've downloaded, Find someone else's generated QR codes to scan to see if they work. Those without devices, not to worry…I've got 2 here and we can also pair up if needed. I will be coming around to see who needs help downloading a reader and who needs a device to use/share. Discussion--who thinks there may be value in QR codes? How might try using in the library? Who's not impressed? 
  • In recent years, I think that this has sort of become something we've been hearing about more oftenmostly because the ability to do it at a much larger scale due to increased mobility, wider bandwidth abilities, but also trends such as open data, open government data sets have driven this idea and discussion further. But,In some ways, we’ve had cloud computing for some time and many of us are using—knowingly or unknowingly using cloud computingWeb based email is a good example, I think….mail like gmail, yahoo, windows, etc. The cost for users is 0…but the, or yahoo, microsoft, etc have email and web servers to support the software and data created by users. But as individual users, we don't need to pay anything usually, download software, or have the hardware to run the applications. Web based in the cloud so to speak. There are some other applications that have become popular that are cloud-based--meaning the cost, maintenance, responsibility for integrity and security--belong elsewhere to someone else..perhaps somewhere far far away.We will be discussing some. Insert notes from CiL—Cloud computing presentation
  • So, to further distinguish the idea of cloud computing, lets talk about the paradigm shift...first there was mainframe computing, then Client/Server Model (PC based), now cloud computing is.hasbecome the dominant shift in thinking about computingVideo: Overview of cloud computing—click on cloud computing model
  • Here are a few technologies or applications that employ cloud computing..that you may be aware of… we will talk about some of these….so for many, this is cloud computing…
  • Who has used? I use this and although I'm a fairly new user, it's had a tremendous effect in how I work and access my documents---access wherever, whenever on multiple devices…desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone***Use laptop and iPad to show the connection***
  • ***demonstrate via iPad***Another cloud based technology that I've used a bit longer, but which is also invaluable to me…keep track of my notes, access wherever, whenever on multiple devices…desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphoneSearchable..great for impromptu notetaking..and keep notes from everywhere in one place, accessible anywhere
  • Click to access webpage live,AWS Products and Services-go to All products--explain various types of “cloud services”ComputingStorageDatabasesNetworkingPaymentsApplication ManagementAmazon S3
  • 20 minAsk if there are any questions15 minutes activity5 minutes re-group/discuss
  • Technology that uses radio communication and allows devices to communicate..or a device to communicate with another object that has an embedded RFID chip (radio frequency identification) Relies on very close proximity—just a few centimeters between devices or RFID tagsRelevant to us for several reasons… there are some convenient personal uses, but also some innovative used for libraries as well…but mobile phones have been and will be increasingly incorporating the technology into devices
  • Google Wallet is one of several mobile payment products available….allows consumers to touch their phone to an RFID/NFC scanning device—at register upon check outGW support Citicard and prepaid Google cards…and is basically a virtual replica of your plastic cardVisa also offers a mobile wallet, and other financial institutions are to be following
  • Openways allowing hotel guest to use NFC technology to have their cell phone become their room access…Some additional uses…this short video shows a few more examples for NFC enabled keys
  • A major use starting to be seen in regards to marketing is RFID tags inserted into posters, billboards that allow users/consumers interact with the advertisement to get additional information…for example a movie poster advertising an upcoming new release, may use NFC to allow potential audience members to view a trailer, buy tickets, or even like a specific product/movie on facebook or other social media site
  • 5 that offer NFC solutions to organizations..libraries among them NFC/RFID technology used for easy materials inventory, locating missing materials
  • A european company, Bibliotecha, has created software based on NFC/RFID technology that enables patrons to check out their own books
  • 5 minPrivacy and SecurityPrivacy..personally identifiable data including a person’s location, type of device or service usingSecurity,,mobile devices will become targeted more because of the potential opportunity to obtain financial information
  • 5 minPlay clip from Terminator… Arnold—Feb issue of Information Today….”Augmented Reality is not Virtual Reality. The key point is that reality is given a digital helping hand”.
  • Google Project Glass video;txtAka—Google Goggles….
  • Earpiece, boom connect wirelessly to sensors using ANT+ standard—measure heartbeat, rate of bicycle—sensors can deliver information to the user audibly or visuallly by LED
  • 3-400.00
  • Example of Combining Google StreetView with Screencasting
  • Augmented reality mapping
  • Toyota --;3nGM—”Windows of Opportunity””
  • Star WalkSolar Walk
  • Based on where users are pointing their cameras—allows them to connect to other users also pointing at those objects
  • 5 min
  • 5 minVideo--
  • I’d like to leave with you with just one more quick video segment..Microsoft developed this video, but it simulates some potential ideas for how some of the technologies we’ve discused today may come together in real life…from augmented reality, to cloud based computing, to the displays we come to see at home, work, and elsewhere…how NFC technology might be more integrated into our lives, how wearable, integrated displays may provide real world information…how we collaborate with co-workers, communicate with family members
  • Reminder about sign-in sheet, evaluation forms
