New and emerging technologies

Learning with e's

The video below is the result of that interview, in which I answer questions such as: what emerging technology trends have the greatest potential for learning? What tips you you have for people wanting to invest in emerging technology?

Emergence of the Performance Catalyst

Tom Spiglanin

A lot of these changes were brought about by the evolution of technology, but there’s also been a substantial change in the nature of jobs and, more recently, the changing nature of work itself.

Connected pedagogy: Smart technology

Learning with e's

The theme of the conference is 'connecting through educational technology' - this echoes the themes of a number of other recent conferences, many of which explore the idea of connected learning. Take the Pilot Smart Earbuds technology for example.

I Believe in the Many Emerging Roles for Learning and Development Professionals

Tom Spiglanin

That compelling reason is technology, specifically the Internet, facile access to it, and the pace at which it continues to grow. As employees became more adept with technology, training moved into the computer itself and elearning was born.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Emerging Technologies in e-Learning

Learning Visions

Thursday, June 28, 2007 Emerging Technologies in e-Learning I sat in on a lunchtime WebEx presentation with Gary Woodill -- Director, Research and Analysis, Brandon Hall Research. The topic: Emerging Technologies in e-Learning. Emerging" = kinds of e-learning that are just starting to show up -- in labs, new company offerings. Gary has worked on three "Emerging e-Learning" reports Emerging E-Learning Technologies: Have looked at 52 emerging technologies.

Old technologies don't die

Witnessing this scene reminds me that no matter what technologies emerge, and no matter what disruptive innovations come along, we will always have the older, more traditional media to use. That's why they never rule anything - tool, resource or technology - from the mix.

Future technologies: What lies ahead

In January I presented a session on 'What's hot and what's not in learning and development' for Learning Technologies in London. LT17UK AI Brian Solis development education future Gerd Leonhard gestural interfaces learning mobile Ray Kurzweil Rudy de Waele Technology Trends

Dialogue, debate and destinations

Goring was essentially arguing that libraries should not be dictated to by technological changes, but in doing so she missed a fundamental point. I was challenged by delegates at Solstice to elaborate on the legal and ethical issues of Creative Commons and other Copyleft approaches.

Change, Learning Technologies, and the future

Attending Learning Technologies in a completely new, yet strangely familiar venue was quite an experience. I arrived with a great deal of anticipation, because Learning Technologies always holds a lot of promise. BETT corporate training L and D Learning Technologies LT19UK

The first technology

Learning with e's

I have been working in the field of learning technologies for almost 40 years. In fact my specialism never ceases to amaze me, because there is always something new to learn, some new technology, app or software tool that is emerging, or some new theory or model that is being proposed.

Movements for change

The learning technology landscape is changing and many questions are being asked. What is Creative Commons and how does it work? How do movements for change emerge and gain impetus? Tags: creative commons Alistair Creelman OER

Future technologies now

What we think about technology

Learning with e's

In conversations with my own student educators recently, something else emerged. I asked them whether this was a true representation of their perceptions of using technology. This is a revealing narrative about how teachers and students view their use technology.

Is technology killing the art of conversation?

The exchange then descended into: 'There's too much technology around' and, 'I don't know what the world is coming to.' Jaron Lanier (2011) believes that interactive technologies are 'deadening personal interaction.' Photo source Is technology killing the art of conversation?

Technology won't replace teachers, but.

"Technology won't replace teachers, but teachers who use technology will probably replace teachers who don't" This was just one of the contentious and thought provoking statements made at Learning Through Technology this week in Glasgow.

#40years of educational technology: Games

This combination was not only the mainstay for entertainment and commerce, it also became the technological touchstone for many courses and programmes of study. It was developed into an art form, and obviously survives today in many new and emerging forms.

#40years of educational technology: Telematics

Learning with e's

Because of my work in educational technology at the nursing college, I naturally chose to study something that I was familiar with, but with an aspect that would present me with a challenge. In fact, satellite technology is arguably the most expensive technology humankind has ever invented.

New technology and the future of learning

Learning with e's

My own session, entitled 'New Technology and the Future of Learning' attempted to gaze (tentatively) into the near future, and to ask questions such as 'what will be the new roles of trainers and developers in the next few years?' It has been a interesting day.

Learning futures

I have enjoyed my short stay here in Doha, Qatar, where I was an invited speaker at the Technology in Higher Education Conference. There is major construction work wherever you look, and the technological infrastructure is impressive.

Connected pedagogy: Shared minds

Learning with e's

I posed some questions for educators to address, and proposed that much of our technology in recent years has been used to connect and to communicate. When people connect using technology, they seek out commonalities and look for shared experiences.

Sitting down with her after her keynote at the summer EDEN conference in Jonkoping, Sweden, we discussed a number of issues around diversity and inclusion, the use of technology in education, games based learning, peer learning and emerging learner-led pedagogies.

Serendipity

I was approached by the editor of the journal after my presentation in London at the Learning Technologies annual conference. It was 1996, and a period of great technological transformation, and the project aimed to set up distance learning centres in hard-to-reach rural areas.

In conversations recently with members of my PLN including Amy Burvall (USA @amyburvall) and Simon Ensor (France @sensor63) another method began to emerge. It's a very creative way to encourage teachers to think about their practice, and get them writing about these thoughts.

It's a professional community of educators interested in technology supported learning. In that year I was just starting out in the world of educational technology, and I presented some of my research at the EDEN summer conference in Poitiers, France.
