8 Types of Technology That Will Be Essential in the 2015 Workplace

8 Types of Technology That Will Be Essential in the 2015 Workplace | myinterests | Scoop.it

"If technology continues to evolve at the current rate, the 2015 workplace could look quite different from today's office spaces -- and may even involve less traditional office space with the rise of telecommuting. From a company's hiring process to sharing knowledge with employees, technology has the ability to change the way we all work.

 

What technology will be essential in the 2015 workplace, but doesn't exist yet?" from: http://www.huffingtonpost.com

 

NOTE: This short post has 8 thought worthy services and technology that would prove mighty helpful in this digital world that is more complex every day. I like the info for "Learning Academies to Keep Up With New Knowledge" (aka Lifelong Learning).

Educational Technology

Educational Technology | myinterests | Scoop.it
Educational Technology, various technologies in schools, instructional technology specialists are rapidly becoming key participants in reshaping the learning process.

 

Educational technology specialists are individuals with proficiency in technology and computers with an aptitude for teaching. They play an important role in selecting the appropriate technology for classroom applications including meeting the needs of special education students.


An educational technology specialist has one foot in the field of technology and IT and other foot in the field of education and teaching. They are able to foresee the kind of impact which the technological advances have on the society. They also see how to use these technological advances for the benefit of the society in the form of advances in delivering teaching aids.

With the ever changing advances in technology, is it fair to say that all students are now educational technology specialists? 

Students need to understand the impact that advances in technology will have on society and the Australian Curriculum:Technologies allows students develop ICT capability as they learn to use ICT effectively and appropriately (ACARA,2013).

I feel that this is a very useful chart to get teachers thinking about how they need to integrate technology into the classroom in meaningful ways, not just using the technology randomly and with no thought to why they might be using it.

7 Key Findings for Successful Education Technology Integrations | Emerging Education Technology

7 Key Findings for Successful Education Technology Integrations | Emerging Education Technology | myinterests | Scoop.it

Have you heard of Project RED (hint - RED stands for revolutionizing education)? They have "conducted a national survey of educational technology that focused on student achievement and financial implications." 

There are seven key findings. These are listed below and additional information on each is in the post.

1. Nine key implementation factors [that] are linked most strongly to education success. 

2. Properly implemented technology saves money.

3. 1:1 schools employing key implementation factors outperform all schools and all other 1:1 schools.

4. The principal's ability to lead change is critical. Change must be modeled and championed at the principal level.

5. Technology-transformed intervention improves learning.

6. Online collaboration increases learning productivity and student engagement.

7. Daily use of technology delivers the best return on investment (ROI).

To go directly to the report where these findings are detailed:
