We Teach as We are Taught

Kapp Notes

The result is that technology tools do not get fully employed into the educational curriculum and an exploratory, constructivist approach is not widely adopted.

Kapp Notes

As a bridge to the full scale adoption of 3D video games, the software company NVIDIA has a product called 3D Vision™ which helps to transforms PC games into full stereoscopic 3D right out of the box, without the need for special game patches. While venturing into a 3D world is interesting, exciting and opens all sorts of possibilities, it is equally as exciting to have a 3D world surround you.

Q&A With Student from King's College

Kapp Notes

In your book you mention the importance of workplaces adopting technology to suit their needs for training, organizational development, etc. From time to time, I get questions from students who have an assignment to speak to someone in the field.

Kapp Notes

It didn’t take off then because a) the technology was too new – few people want to be early adopters, 2) the processing was too slow – especially when compared with the Internet, 3) WAP was cumbersome to program and slow to respond, 4) screens were too small and the page by page experience was dreadful, 4) there were no apps, just expensive custom development possibilities, and 5) there was no compelling market – people just didn’t see it as a need.
