What Americans Really Think About Virtual Reality

What Americans Really Think About Virtual Reality | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
A new consumer study finds that minorities are more interested in VR, and Oculus is not No. 1.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

From a report!!
Minorities are more likely than whites to be passionate about virtual reality. And despite the attention paid to Facebook-owned Oculus in the media, Sony’s PlayStation VR is the most recognized brand.

These are some of the conclusions from a wide-ranging survey of consumer expectations and preferences about virtual reality that will be released Tuesday byGreenlight VR, a virtual reality analysis and research firm, and Touchstone Research, which conducts online market studies. Fast Company was given exclusive advance access to the data.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

There seems to be a renewed interest in the “Digital Divide” as an issue for public policy as well as practical intervention. Perhaps linked to the up-coming UN meeting on the 10th anniversary of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) or perhaps because of the saturation of Internet markets in most developed countries, public policy bodies from the UN to the (US) FCC and private companies from Google to Facebook and beyond have been actively discussing how to overcome the Digital Divide (or rather to bring the next x billion online).

Identifying and Supporting Productive STEM Programs in Out-of-School Settings

Identifying and Supporting Productive STEM Programs in Out-of-School Settings | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
More and more young people are learning about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in a wide variety of afterschool, summer, and informal programs. At the same time, there has been increasing awareness of the value of such programs in sparking, sustaining, and extending interest in and understanding of STEM. To help policy makers, funders and education leaders in both school and out-of-school settings make informed decisions about how to best leverage the educational and learning resources in their community, this report identifies features of productive STEM programs in out-of-school settings. Identifying and Supporting Productive STEM Programs in Out-of-School Settings draws from a wide range of research traditions to illustrate that interest in STEM and deep STEM learning develop across time and settings. The report provides guidance on how to evaluate and sustain programs. This report is a resource for local, state, and federal policy makers seeking to broaden access to multiple, high-quality STEM learning opportunities in their community.

Sarah Cannon's curator insight, November 25, 2015 9:18 AM

I believe that there are many people in the U.S. who do not pay attention to the news. Some are too poor to own a phone or television to keep up with what is going on in the world (although they can read the news paper, but you get my point). Others are too rich to care. And some base there opinions off of other peoples views and don't have an opinion of their own. Am I ignorant about the world? No, because I like to know what's happening world wide, especially if there are issues going on that can affect the survival of the human race, survival of the environment, and survival of my country.

World Summit on the Information Society United Nations General Assembly High-Level Meeting
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

 

Thus “digital citizenship” is a newer and evolved form of citizenship and moreover one which is necessary to and appropriate in the digital age/the Information Society. This new form of citizenship has multiple aspects but for our purposes the two most salient elements are that with this new form of citizenship goes certain rights – at a minimum to be able to have access to and to effectively exercise citizenship rights in a digital age; and on the part of the State the obligation to ensure that the citizen is in a position to exercise their digital citizenship in an appropriate and effective way.

Precisely what might be implied by this remains to be teased out but certainly it includes the universal right to Internet access and at a speed and quality sufficient to be an active and effective citizen, equally it implies sufficient digital (and other) literacy to make effective use of this access in support of effective digital citizenship and it includes the assurance of technology designed and linked directly to legal and rights based structures of anti-discrimination associated with disability, age, ethnicity, language and so on so as to ensure that there is no discrimination in the opportunity for use.

Stop saying technology is causing social isolation

Stop saying technology is causing social isolation - Digital Culturist - Medium

Social media, and smartphones for that matter, only contributes to make our social experiences richer by connecting us with people in new ways. I’m sure many of you have met lots of interesting people. I sure have. Thanks to social media, I’ve been able to meet people that are now close friends of mine. And when I’m out, I like to open Twitter and check how they are, what they are doing, if I have something to say that may interest them. Heck, I even met my girlfriend on Twitter years ago.
