Les lunettes Google est une suite de l'ère post PC,  le nomadisme se transforme ...

Dans cet article, plusieurs points de réflexion sont mis en exergue ; dont  les incidences sur notre santé?

 

 Les comportements de la communication et d’interactivité ont changé (la génération Y est un exemple) et nous ne connaissons pas encore tous les impacts sur les générations suivantes et celles qui vivront avec les lunettes.

 

Cette émergence dans le monde virtuel, un monde propre aux  besoins de utilisateurs de ces lunettes (que Google met à leur service, par ces nombreuses applications et qui seront personnalisables à travers de celles-ci...).

Quels vont être les impacts sur la santé physique (problèmes cardiovasculaires…) et l'interaction humaine (effet Roseto ; l’entraide sociale, les liens d’amitié…).

Si nous prenons en exemple les Smartphones ; pour certains les téléphones cellulaires a été un amplificateur des conversations réels et pour d’autres, ils sont  un obstacle pour ces interactions humaines. Une enquête démontre que 30% d’utilisateurs de 18-29 ans utilisent leur téléphone pour éviter d’interagir avec les gens autour d’eux… avez-vous observé ce type de comportements ?

Plusieurs points restent en suspens de cette nouvelle technologie de Google et de ses impacts sur les l’humain.

I like some of these ideas. I'm thinking we could have students make podcast booktalks and have QR codes linking to them in the books or on a display or around the school. Hmm...kids can't use their phones at school, yet. Well, I can always put links to them in our catalog and on the website.

Narrated Slideshow – Screencast Tool Comparison

Narrated Slideshow – Screencast Tool Comparison | Technology & Training | Scoop.it

A screencast is a digital recording of a computer screen with audio narration. Screencasts can include telestrator (‘John Madden pen’) annotations. Narrated slideshows include audio recordings synchronized to images without hand-drawn annotations.

Screencasts and narrated slideshows can be created with two kinds of tools:

1. Browser-based: Create an account on the website and use a modern web browser like Google Chrome or FireFox to record, save and share it.

2. Client-based: Download and install software on a computing device to record and save.

Although a new release has since Panda (update) been issued, Penguin, this is a great "to-do" list for yourself or to just learn a little about SEO. Your SEO team should be long on top of this. If that is news to them, then you have a competence issue in your team.

GIANFRANCO MARINI's curator insight, May 10, 2013 2:04 PM

CratePlayer è una web app o un webware, come preferite, che consente la creazione di compilation audio e video dai numerosi social network e social media del web (youtube, vimeo, dailymotion, ecc.) e dai vari siti web. E' possibile farlo anche attraverso un apposito bookmarklet che consente di catturare il video desiderato in modo molto semplice.

 

E' inoltre possibile, per ogni raccolta creata, inserire una copertina, predisporre una descrizione, aggiugnere dei tag, configurarla come privata o pubblica, condividerla (Goggle+, Facebook, Twitter, ecc.), incorporarla.

 

Molto utile per la didattica in quanto consente di creare raccolte di video e/o audio da fonti diverse e su un deterimnato tema / argomento da fornire agli studenti per approfondimenti e per lo studio, senza dover fornire loro lunghe liste di  link. Utile anche come esercizio da far svolgere agli studenti fornendo loro un tema sul quale ricercare fonti audio e video da oprganizzare e integrare in una raccolta

unspy's curator insight, June 2, 2013 10:57 AM

Taking "Fair Use" to the next level... CratePlayer is a web app which allows you to create compilations of video (and audio) clips coming from all your social media accounts as well as from YouTube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Soundcloud or from any other website (a standard bookmarklet allows to easily grab video and audio content you find on the web.)

 

While it is not possible to upload your own files, it is possible to apply a visual cover, a description and relevant tags to each collection, which can be set to "private" or "public" depending on your needs. Furthermore you can invite additional persons to contribute to curate a specific collection.

 

Final collections can be easily shared on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, via email, or can be embedded on any web site or blog.
