Emerging Technologies News via the Horizon Report, The 2014 Higher Education Edition Video

New Media Consortium (NMC) and EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) recently released  the NMC Horizon Report > 2014 Higher Education Edition.  It's part of an ongoing research project designed to identify and describe emerging technologies likely to have an impact on learning, teaching, and creative inquiry in education.

Fast Trends: Driving changes in higher education over the next one to two years

  • Growing Ubiquity of Social Media
  • Integration of Online, Hybrid, and Collaborative Learning

Mid-Range Trends: Driving changes in higher education within three to five years
  • Rise of Data-Driven Learning and Assessment
  • Shift from Students as Consumers to Students as Creators


Long-Range Trends: Driving changes in higher education in five or more years

  • Agile Approaches to Change   There is a growing consensus....that institutional leadership and curricula could benefit from agile startup models. 

  • Evolution of Online Learning Progress in learning analytics, adaptive learning, and a combination of cutting-edge asynchronous and synchronous tools will continue to advance the state of online learning... though many of these are still the subjects of experiments and research.
Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Trend watching!  This is useful for any type of forecasting for higher education, with implications for anyone involved in learning and technology.  ~  D

Living in An Interconnected Society - The Good, the Bad & the Potential, Tiffany Shlain

Tiffany Shlain, founder of the Webby Awards, through video illustrates today's interconnected society at The Economist's 2012 event in San Francisco.

  

_____________________________

   

As we become more connected, we'll be able to see the cause and effect of our actions in real time.

_____________________________



What does it mean to live in a connected world? How is it changing us, our culture and the planet?

 

Her film "Connected"  illustrates:

Technology is changing the way we connect with people around us.

 

We have accumulated so much knowledge, yet we have trouble seeing the bigger picture. Perhaps it is time to declare our interdependence.

 

_____________________________

   

It's the beginning of a participatory revolution.
_____________________________


Close to 2 billion people on-line with 5 billion cell phones. It's the beginning of a participatory revolution. Ideas are free to interact, cross pollinate, creating hybrid perspectives all over the world.

 

As we become more connected, we'll be able to see the cause and effect of our actions in real time. ...Once we understand the supply chains and see their results, we'll be more thoughtful about our behavior.

 

Tiffany Shlain favorite quote:  "Go as far as you can see and when you get there. you'll be able to see even further."

Thanks for sharing this. I took an online course from Howard Rheingold, who is in this film a few times.

Thank you for the rescoops. I really like this quote:
"Go as far as you can see and when you get there. you'll be able to see even farther"

Best of luck on your scoop.it site. I like what I see here.

Disruptive Technologies in Social Learning - 2012 | Bill Brandon, Learning Solutions

Disruptive Technologies in Social Learning -  2012 | Bill Brandon, Learning Solutions | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

“In 2012, three (3) disruptive technologies [will] play a larger and larger part in our work ...changing business models, roles and relationships in more and more organizations in 2012, not just the early adopters."

 

1. Mobile

Mobile technology is already having an effect in secondary education as well as in higher education, where tablets and mobile phones are a standard part of the delivery system on many campuses.

 

Consumers have switched their behavior to smartphones. This year for the first time, time spent in mobile device use of apps passed the time spent using mobile devices to access the Web. These behavioral changes will increasingly show up in government and enterprise learning-related activities in 2012.

 

2. Social

Social technology is having similar effects on consumer behavior, but with interesting variations. For example, television producers have figured out how to make social comments on second screens (the iPad in the lap of a viewer while she watches television) part of the show.

 

Social apps and sites are already a significant part of marketing products and ideas. Game designers increasingly add social features to their products.

Could there be effects on learning in 2012? How can we engage individual learners on multiple platforms simultaneously? How can we simultaneously engage multiple learners, including collaborative engagement across multiple platforms?



3. The Cloud

(a metaphor for the Internet, the unseen “cloud” of servers used as a utility to store information and host applications and services in real time) is another phenomenon  discussed for several years.

 

More enterprises are creating their own on-premise “clouds” as a means of gaining the advantages of cloud computing while having (at least some) control over security of their data and reliability of services. Combinations of The Cloud and on-premise clouds are also becoming more common.

De-Mystifying Khan Academy: Screen Capture for Educators

De-Mystifying Khan Academy: Screen Capture for Educators | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

"Info & a video about free & for fee whiteboard screencasting tools -  all the rage for creating educational videos like those featured in the Khan Academy."


Here's a few excerpts, adapted:


The Khan Academy website provides a FAQ that lists the tools that Salman Khan uses to create his videos:


  • Camtasia Recorder/Studio ($200)
  • ScreenVideoRecorder ($20)
  • SmoothDraw 3 (Free)
  • Microsoft Paint (Free)
  • Wacom Bamboo Tablet ($80)


There are three basic types of tools needed to do a whiteboard screencast:

  • a video screen recorder, 
  • a drawing program, and 
  • an input device. 


The basic concept is very simple: you plan your lesson, then record what you draw using the drawing program and your narration with the video screen capture program.



The input device (use a graphics tablet for best results) allows you to draw or write on a tablet rather than trying to use the mouse.


iPad Video Capture: For those interested in capturing the action on an iPad 2 or 3, this helpful video from MacMost Now will explain how.

I'd like to try this for instructional video soon.  Have any of our readers done this on the iPad?
