Exploring The Future Of Learning
If someone from a century ago were suddenly transported into today's home, they would be confounded by the way that technology has transformed it. The teen-ager IMing friends, a college student visiting the online world Second Life or dad checking his work e-mail would all seem bizarre and alien. But they'd probably feel pretty much at home in a school classroom: The teacher's still up front, talking to students in desks who are writing notes with pencil and paper. Bridging the gap between those two worlds -- the dynamic, changing technology children use at home and the relatively unchanged classroom -- is the subject of a conference at Duke this weekend called "The Future of Learning." . . .
Free Online Broadcast & New Media Cources
The BBC has provided various distance-learning opportunities for listeners for decades, and this set of online materials reaches across the globe to provide anyone with an Internet connection a set of multimedia training exercises and tutorials. These particular guides and modules were originally designed for in-house use with BBC staff, and few editorial changes have been made in the interim. Visitors can browse through such sections as "Television", "Radio", "Broadcast Technology", and "Journalism". . . .
Technology Integration - Developing a Comprehensive Professional Development Plan
As I mentioned in the first article of this series, when I looked around our school, only a handful of teachers were properly integrating technology. When I further investigated, there were a number of reasons why. One reason was that a lot of teachers did not understand what technology integration was. Another reason was that there was no professional development process in place that allowed teachers to overcome fears and barriers. Some teachers felt isolated. Other teachers felt that their ignorance would be misconceived for a lack of aptitude. . . .
Five Steps To Multimedia Reporting
Novice journalists who hope to follow in the footsteps of Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite or even Maria Shriver may find themselves puzzled about how to start in the world of multimedia reporting. This lovely site, sponsored by the Knight Media Center, offers a number of tutorials that will help such persons learn about choosing a story, doing fieldwork, editing their piece, and even offer a few tips on shooting video. The site is divided into sections that provide tips on picking the right video camera for the assignment and those that give some useful information on the various audio recording devices that might come in handy. Students of multimedia journalism will want to let friends know about the site, and instructors working in this area can point students to this site as well. . . .
Libraries At The Cutting Edge
The trendiest meeting place on many college campuses these days features a coffee bar, wireless Internet zones, free entertainment and special programs, modern lounge areas and meeting rooms. And free access to books. Lots of books. This educational social hub is the campus library, which is beginning to look more like an Internet café than the academic library you remember from your college days. Far from fading away in the Age of Google, which has begun digitizing millions of books from university and other libraries, and despite the almost universal availability of vast online resources, circulation and visits at college and research libraries are on the rise. Campus librarians now answer more than 72 million reference questions each year -- almost twice the attendance at college football games. . . .
The 10 Most Dangerous Things Users Do On Line
End users -- god bless 'em. You can't live with 'em -- but without them, you wouldn't have a job. They're the reason you have an IT infrastructure; they're also the single greatest threat to the security of that infrastructure. Because, in the end, most users have no idea how dangerous their online behavior is. No matter how many times they train them, no matter how many classes they hold, most IT professionals still watch helplessly as end users introduce new malware because they "just couldn't resist looking at the attachment." Security pros cringe as their users download software for personal use, turn off firewalls to speed up a connection, or leave their passwords stuck to their laptops. Wouldn't it be nice if you could give end users a list of the most dangerous things they do online every day, and then tell them why those activities are particularly risky? . . .
School District Invests in Many Facets of Technology
Technology encompasses computers, telephones, audio/video equipment, security systems, lighting systems, heating and cooling systems, distance learning equipment and more. The use of technology in all aspects of education, and in business, continues to expand daily. Our mission is to prepare our students in the uses of technology both today and in the future. Doing so is no easy task, as technology changes and innovations require constant updates of equipment, software, training and curriculum integration. Dowagiac Union Schools has made significant investments in keeping our technology up-to-date . . .

Audio in an Asynchronous Learning Environment
As with any higher educational institution, the University of Advancing Technology seeks to engage students on a multitude of levels. In the Summer of 2006, however, the provost of the university was looking for an opportunity to engage both the online and on campus population. He detailed what he was looking for with the various deans of the institution and handed the task over to the Center for Learning Excellence (CLE) to implement. From here the objectives were clear, but the resources and technology needed to launch this were not. . . .
