Collaborative Learning for the Digital Age - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Collaborative Learning for the Digital Age - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Technology for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

I want to suggest a different way of seeing, one that's based on multitasking our attention—not by seeing it all alone but by distributing various parts of the task among others dedicated to the same end. For most of us, this is a new pattern of attention. Multitasking is the ideal mode of the 21st century, not just because of information overload but also because our digital age was structured without anything like a central node broadcasting one stream of information that we pay attention to at a given moment.

'Subtitle glasses' for deaf people

'Subtitle glasses' for deaf people | Technology for Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

BBC News Graham Satchell 25 August 2011

 

"People who are deaf or hard of hearing have long complained that going to watch a film can be an unsatisfactory experience, with subtitled films on at unsociable times and often suffering from technical problems.

But a solution could soon available in the form of special glasses which allow the wearer to see subtitles directly in front of their eyes, giving them the freedom of choice afforded to hearing people.

Graham Satchell reports."
