Trends information capturing infrastructure
A statistical comparison between traditional face to face and online education.
UMTrends11: A pictorial description of the tools and resources I use to tack learning technology trends.
I find the idea of disruptive learning intriguing… a negative phrase that has a constructive connotation, especially when it is applied in education.
A list of trends that I will consider for further investigation
Using mobile learning in an environmental technology course
Ideas about the use of mobile devices in a classroom. This is helping me formulate how my next course will look like.
Evolution and leapution… wonderments about life, evolution, God and what drives the way we move forward.
The augmented reality technology will remove the learning from the schools and put it in real life.
The three challenges I will face if we decide to implement the mobile devices in my organization.
There are some criticism about Khan Academy. Here, I use numbers to put it in perspective.
The mobile nomad is the one who obtain knowledge on demand based on current information.
The FCC released the “white spaces” – the unused spectrum between broadcast television channels — will lead to a so-called “Super Wi-Fi” or “Wi-Fi on steroids.” This means we will have “80 Mbps and above long-range wireless speeds and 400-800 Mbps short-range wireless networks. Perhaps this means that wireless Internet can now actually be “faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound”. Google chipped in to utilize the bandwidth.
Very soon we will access WiFi like we get radio signal: everywhere!
Due to an adventure that I might explain in another post, I experienced Adaptive Cruise Control in a refreshing way.
My wife and I were forced to drive separate cars for more than 700 Km in a very bad winter weather. She drove Luay’s Ford Focus while I drove my brand new 2011 MKX (showing off!) from Calgary to Fort McMurray during the worst weather conditions Alberta has seen. We were able to get home in 16 hours for a trip that usually takes 8 hours. However, my wife drove for both of us.
I drove the MKX because I do not fit in my son’s car. She drove in front of me to keep an eye on her for the Focus is not reliable to drive in the bad weather. So I set my cruise control on 120km/hr (yes, on the Lincol, you can specify the cruise speed digitally) then enabled the adaptive cruise control (that is, you tell the car to follow the speed of the car in front of yours.) In this way, my car followed the speed of my wife’s car for the whole trip. I mean all I had to do is steer it… no decisions what so ever about breaking or accelerating… my left foot enjoyed the whole trip… the first time it drove 700 km without feeling tired!
An amazing experience! I am looking forward for the day that the car will do its own steering… Would it happen in my days?
Use technology to achieve learning customization, personalization and individuality.
My online course dream
W3Q3: Online Collabiration is useful in certain applications and might prove counterproductive in other.
W3, Q2: The use of synchronous events in an online course depends on the participants.
