A couple of thoughts from Westley’s inspirational presentation:
- “I myself, am on Facebook all day, why shouldn’t they (the students) be?
- Of course we allow them use mobile devices, it’s part of their lives.
- If we’re blocking these technologies from children, we are denying them the skill of seeing differently, we’re denying them their future jobs.
- I don’t like the term “digital immigrants”. It’s that some are just more experienced than the others and the others should, and can, learn more.
- In opposed to $ 25 000 ad campaign, my friends did their own video about a product they liked. Cost: $ 2.20, the cost of the product (snacks).”
Other things to check out and think about:
- QR codes, where could you use them?
- Augmented reality + thin screens = ? What about wearable glasses to wear which show you additional information based on your location?
- Google up “Sitting down is bad for you”.
- Will tablets kill desktops and laptops? –They got almost everything in them and even easier to carry around than laptops.
- Motion magazines; How could they change copy and text and the use of images or motion pictures in a magazine. How about additional information in articles? Zooming in to things like human anatomy; body > chest > heart > animated “how heart works”.
- Future jobs: Virtual Lawyer. If you are a global, virtual company, could you have a virtual lawyer too?
