ICT Futures

Thinking about ICT future development a lot just now….

Loving this video which someone showed me from RM. The future of glass – may not sound relevant to learning and teaching but have a look and its great for starting discussions around possible future developments.

If you haven’t already read it look at the 2011 Horizons report – lots of food for thought.

And one of my favourite augmented reality type learning and teaching sites which Doug Dickinson directed me towards – zooburst

I’ve really enjoyed seeing Doug in action recently along with Richard Crossland – delivering some training in SLC – moments of magic where you see people in the audience nodding and answering the “so what” question in their heads about using technologies. For too many years its been about the how to work the stuff and not the “so what can this do for learning?” What Doug does looks simple from the audience but is anything but….

  1. Fascinating video. I think it’s entirely relevant to learning and teaching if only to remind those of us in our primes (!) of the world in which the youngsters are (almost) living.
    Thye sure do have to ‘power down’ when they come to school.

  2. We really like Zooburst here as well, just finished a quick post having wee look at what a primary 1 can do with it. http://glo.li/i2oFdy
    I think that you are spot on about using the “so what” question about technology (about everything we do really!), it needs to be core to learning and teaching not just an add on.
