  3. 3. • Diversity. • Digital fluency. • Digital citizenship . • Identity and privacy • Cyber bullying. • Global connectedness • De-privatised practice The product of the beliefs, perceptions, relationships, attitudes, and written and unwritten rules that shape and influence behaviour.
  4. 4. • Equitable access. • Identity and access management. • System integration • Mobile and ‘touch’ technologies • Big Data and analytics • 3D printing • Digital engagement • Virtual and mixed reality platforms The pervasive nature of change that occurs when a new technology is introduced – it is not additive, it is ecological.

  7. 7. • Networked communities. • Community focus. • Charter schools. • Private Public Partnerships. • Alternative forms of assessment. • Learning record stores Educational institutions are by nature, very reliant on the structures that give them their identity and serve to support what they do and the way they do it.
  8. 8. Jeopardy? “I felt obsolete, I felt like a Detroit factory worker in the ‘80s seeing a robot that could now do his job on the assembly line. I felt like ‘Quiz Show Contestant’ was now the first job that had become obsolete under this new regime of thinking computers.” https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2011/feb/17/ibm-computer-watson-wins-jeopardy
  9. 9. Financial advice Robo-advisors have surged in popularity as people seek low-cost, automated investment opportunities. Within minutes, robo-advisors allow you to set up a customized, diverse portfolio and can give you access to wealth management services previously reserved for the ultra-wealthy like tax- loss harvesting and access to a certified financial planner. http://www.investopedia.com/tech/top-robo-advisors/
  10. 10. Call centres and AI • AI is now helping to predict customer behaviour on the phone, to provide recommendations to the customer service reps on how best to deal with the issue. http://www.computerweekly.com/opinion/How-AI-is-disrupting-the-role-of-call-centres- and-call-centre-staff

  12. 12. The dirty rusty wooden dresser drawer. A couple million people wearing drawers, Or looking through a lonely oven door, Flowers covered under marble floors. And lying sleeping on an open bed. And I remember having started tripping, Or any angel hanging overhead, Without another cup of coffee dripping. Surrounded by a pretty little sergeant, Another morning at an early crawl. And from the other side of my apartment, An empty room behind the inner wall. A thousand pictures on the kitchen floor, Talked about a hundred years or more. And what if from distress comes something fine, And following this dress-rehearsal pain Gives way to Joy, mistress of ardor, art, And love, who sure this mess would straighten out? For Joy has no illusions of a break; She brooks many ill fusions of extremes, And shares her light ‘till few suns could compete; Her binding love makes twos ones and keeps peace. So best not make a strumpet of this Joy, Assert that she pays some debt with her smile, Or name to her a numb set of stale sparks; She never has succumbed yet, bless her heart. Her love is full and indiscriminate And even so you’ll find no sin in it. https://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/ai-poet/ Poem One Poem Two
  13. 13. AI and publishing… The Associated Press uses Automated Insights’ Wordsmith platform to create more than 3,000 financial reports per quarter. It published a story on Apple’s latest record-busting earnings within minutes of their release. Forbes uses Narrative Science’s Quill platform for similar efforts and refers to the firm as a partner. https://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/08/opinion/sunday/if-an-algorithm-wrote-this-how- would-you-even-know.html
