Kinda Learning Stuff: Struck by a thought or so... - 0 views

  • Listening to a Webcast from the Open University on "The Net Generation" I'm struck again by how much time we spend trying to categorise and label technologies and usage of technology which are used innately by those who are the most active participants. It reminds me of David Attenborough, high on the African plain doing a softly worded piece to camera about the behaviour of the animals he's observing... all the while the animals in question are simply getting on with their own thing and merrily ignoring his insightful, considered words.

    This seems particularly pertinent given all the recent activity in College around the 'Student Experience'. The lastest version of JISC Inform talks about this and this appears to be the launch of their "Student Experiences of Technology" campaign which is bound to yield something useful.

Universities' use of virtual technologies is 'patchy' - 0 views

  •  
    We probably shouldn't be unduly concerned with QM's apparent lack of progress in the Web2.0 area....yet....
  •  
    Article in the Guardian education about HE's use of Web2.0 technologies. It's driven by the publication of a report by Sir David Melville but highly annoyingly does not provide any reference for the report itself....I have managed to track it down....see the "Higher Education in a Web2.0 World" bookmark!

Diffusion Theory & Instructional Technology - 0 views

  •  
    This paper discusses how the theories of innovation diffusion have been incorporated into the field of instructional technology.
  •  
    Saw this on a science feed and only scanned it so far. The paper is old, but it might be interesting - various fields are interested in how innovations spread through a community (e.g. agriculture) and considering those theories with respect to education might be interesting. Anyone seen anything similar in the past?

Alastair McQueen on the rise of talking games - 0 views

    Despite the focus on games there's obviously potential educational value in realistic simulations like this...
  •  
    Article in the Guardian Technology about integrating 'chatbots' into games and the potential of being able to converse realistically with characters. The writer speculates on the birth of a new genre "The First Person Talker". Could this be the "killer app" for games for girls?

"Social Media is Here to Stay... Now What?" - 0 views

  •  
    I like danah boyd's work on social media - her writing is very easy to read and always resists & deconstructs the simplifications that the mainstream media come up with in relation to technology and society. This talk is not as research-y as her other papers, but I like it because to a tech-novice such as myself it explains some of the principles behind social networking in easily comprehensible ways. The five properties of social media and three dynamics towards the end of the paper have been helpful for me in thinking about how to understand, and manage, the online mentoring for our social networking project.

Amazon unveils Kindle DX e-reader (BBC News) - 0 views

    Prices etc. are still a problem though... (oh, and you can't get kindles over here - brit firm plastic logic bringing one out soon though. IMHO I think that in a couple year's time, when they hit ipod-like mass market (and are a lot cheaper) these could potentially bring a lot of change/possibilities in HE. Unless something else takes over by then of course...
  •  
    E-paper readers get that little bit closer to mass market. Amazon launches larger version of kindle - business and academia prime markets for larger (and annotating) readers given reports/papers/textbooks.
