Sitting here thinking of what I have just digested from the Australian ACT VET Emerging Technologies document passed on by Leigh Blackall - RFID's ? - imbedding microchips in children for monitoring purposes? - I was also dissapointed that the TxtMe project was mentioned with little of the key findings from the TxtMe project reflected in the report chapter summary - I must remember it is still a great day........

FW: Xbox - Ygen.

(viewed 1067 times)
I was speaking with a number of people at the TAFEWA Pilbara Flan conference
last week ( see www.moblog.co.uk/blog/PilbaraFLAN) who are actively
'blueprinting' the use of technologies such as the Xbox with that of
training package outcomes particularly in the numeracy and literacy
portfolio. I was also amazed to hear that a number of those Lecturers had
already begun engaging students actively using SMS and in blogging forums
links with gaming forums such as Blue vs. Red.With those conversations ringing in my head I returned to Perth talking with
a BHP Billiton manager badgering me on the flight back about how much time
his kids spend on the xbox games console at home and how he thinks that by
shutting off these technologies including ipods and the like that we are
actually doing ourselves a dis-favour with the next learning generation.I got home to download an email from Leigh Blackall and Sean Fitzgerald
alerting me to the release of the publication 'Emerging Technologies - A
framework for thinking ' which has been recently released by the ACT
Department of Education and Training, Australia. Low and behold it contains
content such as ;"....................A shift in culture is crucial to ensure that students'
uses of these devices are embraced as educational opportunities and that
they become tools of the trade rather than be considered contraband."Wow!Have we turned full circle since this time last year or is the whole world
of emergent and mobile communication technologies finally having it's say on
the educational psyche?With so many educators now contemplating how to get permissions to use such
controversial technologies in-house so to speak what does this now mean for
educators unwilling to or reluctant to engage with learners of any age who
desire to engage utlising these networked ecologies?Whats your view point?
