AcademiX - Welcome

(March 26 I attended an Apple-sponsored AcademiX seminar at MIT. Or most of it--had to dash back to the office for a meeting in the afternoon and I didn't make it back for the end of the day. What I went to, however, was quite good.

Here are my notes, raw and uncorrected except for formatting, with occasional comments in brackets.)

Welcome and Opening Comments

Four AcademiX sessions happening around the country - not Apple marketing, abt learning what ed customers are doing.

Digital learning environment: create, access, distribute - held together by collaboration. Innovation happening outside LMS

People of the Book v. Digital Natives. – we here today are mainly former

What would we know if none of us had ever read a book.

We can’t predict what big things are happening, but we can be involved

In oral cultures, edu required proximity – now it’s everywhere at all times.

Literacy enables other rational discourses

What are time/space constraints, biases of digital world?

Mobility changes this. (No parking app joke)

Wikinomics quote: new promise of collaboration is that with peer production we will harness human skill, ingenuity, and intelligence more efficiently and effectively…

How do we create next gen of professionals/citizens, getting them to stand on shoulders of giants.
