Personal Computing Is Dead, Long Live Collaborative Computing | Thriving or Dying in the Project Age | Scoop.it

"Those of us who are actively developing for the HoloLens, and for the other augmented and mixed reality devices and platforms that currently exist, are constantly looking for the next bit of news or press conference about the space. Our one hope is to find any information about the road ahead, to know that the hours we spend slaving away above our keyboards, with the weight of a head-mounted display on our neck, will lead to something as amazing as we picture it. All the analysis tends to lead down roads that say 5 to 10 years."

Bryce Cooper's curator insight, May 30, 12:29 AM
I think that the hololens is a fantastic resource, and I hope that it gains more traction sooner rather than later. The capabilities that mixed reality could present to my own teaching in the area of history are quite profound. Students could physically experience historical events, see through the eyes of someone who was there standing on the ground when ANZAC soldiers landed at Gallipoli, or when the Treaty of Versailles was signed. Students could interact with the augmented reality and use it to create great collaborative projects. They could use it to predict outcomes of battles, from being able to physically see the circustances such as terrain and armed strength.

This resource supports the SAMR framework well, in regards to the higher order thinking aspects of Redefinition. Students can immerse themselves in a situation in VR that replaces the physical pictures, text and videos entirely, and creates a new dimension to engagement with a topic. Whilke a documentary full of firsthand footage can be insightful for a relatively recent era, VR recreations of ancient historical aspects could be invaluable for student engagement and learning. 

VR has the capability to essentially redefine the way in which students learn and engage with history, and can present all new opportunities for teachers to plan and implement interesting and engaging assessment and activities.

Motivating People Starts with Having the Right Attitude

Motivating People Starts with Having the Right Attitude | Thriving or Dying in the Project Age | Scoop.it

Most leaders know what strong motivation looks like. When I ask leadership development clients to describe the type of motivation they’d like to see in their teams, they mention qualities such as persistence, being a self-starter, having a sense of accountability for and commitment to achieving results, and being willing to go the extra mile on projects or to help other team members. But many leaders have little idea of how to boost or sustain that level of motivation.
