Chapter 8.7.b Virtual and augmented reality

http://www.tonybates.ca/wp-content/uploads/asssociates.jpgBy . As with serious games, virtual and augmented reality are technologies that have been around for some time while making a relatively small impact on education in their earlier development. However more recent technological developments that have moved virtual worlds from two-dimensions (such as Second Life) into three-dimensional, deeply immersive environments have brought more attention to their potential in education.

ADL Advocate: Making the Vision of Learning Anytime

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Robert A. Wisher[Edit][Delete]: ADL Advocate: Making the Vision of Learning Anytime, Anywhere, a Reality, Military Training Technology [Edit][Delete] November 27, 2006
I think that I think of "Learning Anytime, Anywhere" very differently than ADL's Robert Wisher. Because in my mind, the phrase includes necessarily "anyone" - but Wisher has a much smaller set of recipients in mind, beginning with the U.S. military, and then expanding through a network of its partners and friends. That is why access control - rather than enabling access - is at the heart of initiatives like CORDRA, and why Wisher envisions "a federation of registries on a global scale" rather than an open and sharable network of open educational resources. Maybe I'm wrong, and maybe ADL is as concerned about providing access for a cattle-boy in Lesotho as for a soldier out somewhere fighting a war. But I doubt it. And I know for certain where my priorities lie. More...

LibWorm: Search and Current Awareness for Libraryfolk

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. David Rothman[Edit][Delete]: LibWorm: Search and Current Awareness for Libraryfolk, davidrothman.net [Edit][Delete] November 27, 2006
Launched Saturday, this service resembles Edu_RSS in many respects, except that it covers libraries and librarianship feeds and podcasts. It's also much larger, culling from some 1100 sources. Can't say I like the name of the service, though - couldn't they think of some other animal? (Historical note: my very first aggregator, coded way back in 1999 or so, was called 'grasshopper').

Action Research and Social Software

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Christopher D. Sessums[Edit][Delete]: Action Research and Social Software, [Edit][Delete] November 21, 2006
"When we frame our actions in terms of experimentation, we can be somewhat relieved of the burden of being perfect." Right. "Richardson talks about the importance of modeling such behaviors, and I believe he is correct." I agree. These basic statements are couched in the model of Action Research in this post, which is a perfectly good model as such things go (the devil is in the details, as always). The post breaks down in the last few sentences, though. It is not about the edublogosphere being a collective, and it is not about evangelizing. It's about modeling and demonstrating, not preaching and converting. More...
