In this episode we have not 1, not 2 but 5 Appetizers that deal with screencasting on the iPad. Rob and Josiah look at the informal and formal ways online learning can occur. We wrap up with Rob responding to a listener’s question about the potential impact of “transmedia” on education.
In Episode 3, Rob and I talked about a virtual reality tech called the Oculus Rift during our KWL segment. Specifically, we were interested in the potential to use it for virtual field trips… well check out this grandmother who’s virtually taken to Tuscany by her grandson.
Check out the video below to see what she was actually looking at. You’ll have to imagine what it would look like with a pair of Oculus Rift goggles on – unless you already have a pair. If that’s the case, contact us now!
Rob’s back from some well deserved R&R and a visit to the PAX East games conference. We cover a web app that helps you gamify classroom management, discuss game trends and tech that we hope will impact education, speculate on the latest attempt at consumer VR, and lots more.
Something old and something new for the Appetizers today. Then we take a look at the relationship between consumer tech and ed tech and we wrap up the show with some thoughts about 3D printing and what the future might hold.
