No audio/video available. It was good opportunity to consolidate and see what else has been predicted for release in 2017/18.
In summary notes:
Ethical dimensions with new technologies – education available to all (technology £s for wealthy only) and privacy / sharing and consent. Whilst each slide is separate, hardware & software interrelated and personalised/social – don’t often have one without another in use of technologies.

- “” Personalised…Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) becoming Bring Your Own Network (BYON), content authoring as well as sharing across platforms
- “”Adaptive…Development of open source adaptive platforms (e,g, Sagefy, Grapple output) may leads to students & tutors finding ways to provide receive expert feedback during an activity not just after submitting a contribution
- “” Social…Enhanced recommendations not just from peers but from socially networked features of websites you visit – “you’ve been here and we know you’re learning about this, how about…” IBM Watson looking at social metadata from images and in-video analytics

- “” Hardware… Virtual reality, not just headsets but foot interactions (footsets?) & wearables. Students and others starting to Hack Your Own Internet of Things. BYOD+BYON could also be BYOL (Bring your own lab) with decrease in cost of 3D printing. Use of AR and field labs.
- “”Software…Return of Virtual Worlds. Second Life 2.0 (High Fidelity) with infinite worlds that can be shared and also Linden Labs proprietary world anticipated in 2017. Designing your own research models based on analysis of scientific data as well as personal/social metadata (expansion of citizen science)

- “” predictive learning analytics moving beyond Maths & Computer Science, combined with existing formative assessment – “you think that I am here, but I think based on my interpretation of data, that I am here..” Stratification also for institutions and risk assessment – prediction of dropping out from MOOCs as well as other learning which could be joining a competitor’s learning & therefore reputation

- “”, extension of space – possibilities for developing greater international partnerships and simultaneous online conferences (timezones permitting), with real-time machine translation. Remote real-time captioning – if becomes open source, this could allow greater accessibility for learners in real time events.
Exciting but barriers need monitoring. Finance for technologies – needs to be available for all not creating further division , investment in assistive technologies to ensure learners aren’t left behind. Social barriers may be reduced but at the expense of privacy, students need to feel equally comfortable about contributing and their personal profiles being shared as and where they want for learning purposes.
