How we interact with devices is evolving. We started with the keyboard for a century before we added the mouse. On mobile devices, it was th…
Larry Murphy, JR's insight:

Just like the old Atari and Nintendo games consoles, this technology will eventually emerge from a game centric focus to a multi-use tool. The technology from the early 70's and 80's was a little slower than what we have today. Everything today is being made faster and more effcient than we could ever have imagined during those time periods. Within the next five years, I would hope the focus will be more on education.

Your Next Computer Will Live on Your Arm | Wired Business | Wired.com | Gesture Based Computing and Its Applications to Education | Scoop.it

Forget about robots rising up against humans for world domination. In the future we’re all going to be robot-human hybrids with the help of wearable computers. We’ve already seen Google Glass, the search giant’s augmented-reality glasses, and now the latest Y Combinator startup to come out of stealth, Thalmic Labs, is giving us a wrist cuff that will one day control computers, smartphones, gaming consoles, and remote-control devices with simple hand gestures.

Larry Murphy, JR's insight:

Just like the technology that we have right now, there was a lot of doubt and resistance, financial setbacks, and lack of demand or uses for the technology. Now that we have smart phones, touch pads, and kinect boxes, it makes you wonder how we ever along without them. Technology. although frightening and useless to sum, often opens up worlds of opportunity for individuals who could only dream about it before it was invented. I think this technology, properly develped, will be a major factor in future of educational technologies.

Education-2025 - Gesture-Based Computing

Education-2025 - Gesture-Based Computing | Gesture Based Computing and Its Applications to Education | Scoop.it

Audrey Watters writes in "A Big Step for Gesture-Based Learning? Kinect Connects with Sesame Street", Microsoft is now filming interactive TV shows that "seek to inspire kids and their parents to get off the couch and into the action, working cooperatively with their favorite characters to have fun and learn at the same time." This is definitely a win-win situation.

Larry Murphy, JR's insight:

It's amazing that game technology has advanced as far as it has. This is a long way from School House Rock and Video Pong. This post has great videos and articles related to future applications of this technology towards education.

This is an interesting video to give you a visual representation of what the technology looks like. Imagine students, regardless of their abilities being able to interact in the learning process utilizing simple gestures. How cool is that?

An analysis of gesture-based technology and its future role in education.
Larry Murphy, JR's insight:

This is a great article By Charlie Osborne for iGeneration | March 10, 2012. She outlines the future possibilities of gesture base technologies and their educational applications. I have learned more by doing than by sitting through lectures. I remember things longer if I have an active part in the transfer of learning process. I like the future prospect of using technology to our advantage to encourage that interaction.

Gesture Based Learning in the Special Education Program

Gesture Based Learning in the Special Education Program | Gesture Based Computing and Its Applications to Education | Scoop.it

Active learning has many faces as it is implemented in classrooms across the world. In Loudoun County, students are kept engaged and motivated through gesture-based activities. Through technologies such as Xbox Kinect and Promethean ActivBoards, our students participate in learning activities that are both cutting edge and highly effective.

 

Larry Murphy, JR's insight:

This is a really awesome example of gesture based computing in action. My classmate, Ms. Judith Hilger, sent me the link. Thanks Judith!!

Immersing a user in a virtual world, or gesture based browsing has the potential to change our attitudes concerning how we interact with computers in class, and promote active learning methods. We are no doubt in the midst of or the beginnings of a shift towards less passive learning techniques and styles. More active, student-centered approaches to classroom learning are becoming more common.

Your Eyes Can Control Augmented Reality Glasses - Situated Research | Gesture Based Computing and Its Applications to Education | Scoop.it

The simple act of turning a page has begun to look outdated with iPads replacing books and manuals for many working professionals. But an augmented reality display similar to Google Glasses frees up wearers’ hands by allowing them to turn virtual pages using their eyes alone.

Larry Murphy, JR's insight:

This is really cutting edge technology. Can you imagine its uses in education?

Gesture based computing « Sylvia's Blog | Gesture Based Computing and Its Applications to Education | Scoop.it
The Microsoft Surface, Apple's iOS devices (iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch), and other gesture-based systems accept input in the form of taps, swipes, and other ways of touching.
Larry Murphy, JR's insight:

Back in the early 80's, I would have never envisioned operationg devices by voice or touch. This idea of this technology, back then, was probably just concepts on a dusty drawing in the back of a computer lab. Although, we are still several years away, the author makes some very valid points on the possibility of the future uses of gesture based computing. Gesture based computing will increase accessiblity for our special education students.
