Technology has affected and is still affecting people of all age brackets from all over the world. In addition to serving as president of the Robotics Society of America since 2000, he also serves on the Board of Advisors for QBox (a mechanical, kinetic and electronic arts group) and BotBall (Robotics Educational Foundation). I hope that education will somehow step up and teach students differently that we do today. Organizations are embracing technology to draw meaningful insights from their operations and leveraging it to explore growth and revenue opportunities. Newer technology is going beyond simply sharing presentations and allowing team members to interact in real-time with holographic tele-presence.
In sectors such as construction or utilities, with large sites and assets to manage, equipping drones with pattern recognition technology to help identify locations that may require closer human inspection is just one potential application. I wish to use this blog as a learning tool to expand my knowledge of technology and to explore its potential in improving my teaching practices.
Kevin_kelly_on_the_next_5_000_days_of_the_web.html , it was mentioned how computer technology has moved from embodiment which was computer to computer to restructure which is page to page to what he calls one machine” which is data to data and the fourth step of transparency which is a virtual computer world where everything known will be on the world wide web or cyberspace.
I checked at the Flip online store and a 4GB (1 hour) video camera can be purchased for $79.99, an 8GB (2 hour) can be purchased for $129.99, or a 16GB (4 hour) video camera can be purchased for $159.99. This is a technology that I could purchase for my classroom if the district could not or would not purchase these for me. I could start off with purchasing a couple video cameras that the students could check-out when they are ready to make their video.
As far as immediate adjustments I will make to my instructional practice regarding the use of technology integration, I will allow my students to have more options in their research and reflection projects using technology (such as podcast, blogging, VoiceThread, and PowerPoint) and continue using the Jumpstart Artist program which differentiates content learning for students and uses levels of readiness in many of the program’s games.
