Augmented reality in education: teaching tool or passing trend?

Is the use of these devices going to detract from the learning process or contribute to future workplace skills? Should teachers be using techniques such as augmented reality (AR) to engage students and develop their skills for the modern world? Well, I say 'yes'. I believe we should be embracing these opportunities. For instance I see AR as a real opportunity for colleges and universities, not only as a way to market and promote themselves, but as a way to communicate with learners and improve the student experience.

AR allows people to add digital content to printed material, geographic locations and objects. Augmented Reality in Education Series - Part 1: What is it? How to use Augmented Reality?

FEMINISM, TECHNOLOGY AND THE INFORMATION SOCIETY Learning from the past, imagining the future - Information, Communication & Society

A number of texts by key authors, including Shulamith Firestone, Valerie Solanas, Cynthia Cockburn, Donna Haraway and Sadie Plant, are examined in light of the social and political context of their time of writing as well as in relation to ‘mainstream’ information society theorists such as Daniel Bell and Manuel Castells. The main focus is on how these authors understand the transformative potential of technologies, and attention is drawn to the swings between optimism and pessimism about the role of technology for a feminist political agenda. The role and nature of manifestos are also explored, and the question of whether it is time for another feminist technology manifesto is raised. Tutorials & Techniques.

Technocratie. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.


La technocratie est une forme de gouvernement (d'entreprise, d'État) où la place des experts techniques et de leurs méthodes est centrale dans les prises de décision[D 1]. Selon le Dictionnaire de la langue philosophique[1] la technocratie est « la condition politique dans laquelle le pouvoir effectif appartient à des techniciens appelés « technocrates » ». Le terme même de « technocratie » trouve ses origines dans les années 1920, avec l'industrialisation, la crise économique et la grande dépression ; mais la notion correspondante possède des racines profondes dans la culture et dans l’histoire occidentale. Les compétences techniques et de leadership sont sélectionnées plutôt par des processus bureaucratiques ou méritocratiques, sur la base du savoir et de la performance, plutôt que par des procédures démocratiques[M 3].

What the Ultra-Personalized Internet Is Hiding from You - Technology. In the spring of 2010, while the remains of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig were spewing crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico, I asked two friends to google "BP. " They're pretty similar—educated, white, left-leaning women who live in the Northeast.

But the results they saw were quite different. One of my friends saw investment information about BP. The other saw news. For one, the first page of results contained links about the oil spill; for the other, there was nothing about it except for a promotional ad from BP. Most of us assume that when we google a term, we all see the same results—the ones that the company's famous PageRank algorithm suggests are the most authoritative based on other pages' links.
