Gaylord Palms Orlando, FL

What a great time of year to visit Olando, FL and Gaylord Palms. Once on property you immediately start to feel the holiday cheer. Lights everywhere, holiday trees everywhere, decorations EVERYWHERE! It’s so awesome!!!

Check in was very easy, however because today is opening day for Gaylord Ice, parking was very hectic. No organization. Valet parking had at least 30 cars waiting to be parked. Ended up self parking, however it was very easy to get to the lobby so all good.

Got to our room and found everything clean and in place. Either the room was recently renovated or well maintained. The only disappointment was the lack of USB ports. We found two at the desk, zero elsewhere. Most modern hotels now have USB charge built into everything. When traveling with kids and or teens, USB charging ports are a must!!

After checking out our room, we started to walk around the resort. I can’t explain how awesome the resort is decorated. After checking out the koi and gators, we headed over to the convention center.

The holiday village has games, shops, and lots of activities for the whole family. The best part was, it’s included in the resort fee!!! The wife and kids had a great time checking out all the holiday decorations for sale. They even had a build a bear workshop. Parents, they even have a North Pole post office! 😉

All around the resort are shops. We stopped at a couple and they had something for everyone.

Restaurants…. something in everyone’s price range. From $50 steaks to $7 grilled panini‘s. Looking for snacks, small stores just about everywhere.

Gaylord Palms Ice Sculpture Exhibit- WHAT AN EVENT! I would place this exhibit as the next wonder of the world. I can’t believe they were able to create this awesome event inside a convention center in Orlando Florida. Be prepared to have your mind blown!

Active Learning Spaces: Lessons Learned in the United States

Screen Shot 2019-11-06 at 1.19.25 PMScreen Shot 2019-11-06 at 1.19.33 PM

Lesson 1: Put Students at the Center

One important lesson confirmed at the ELI Annual Meeting is that the student experience must form the starting point for innovating classrooms. During the conference, Liv Gjestvang (Ohio State University) and Jennifer Sparrow (Pennsylvania State University) outlined the three most important qualities demanded of current students in relation to the ever-changing labor market:

  • Students must think creatively and divergently.
  • Students must possess digital literacy.
  • Students must have the social skills to function well in teams in different cultural settings.1

To develop these skills, 21st-century students benefit greatly from active learning. As is perhaps expected, they are the target group, with the highest usage of educational spaces. It is therefore important to create educational spaces where students can develop creativity and learn from each other through active education. The active learning space provides students with variation and flexibility in educational modes. Instead of just listening passively to the instructor, they can be more actively involved in discussions, projects, and the lecture itself, which generates more in-class energy and shifts the overall dynamic from teacher-centered to student-centered. During our visit to the University of California–Irvine (UCI) campus, a representative reported that students even use the available active learning classrooms outside of scheduled lectures.

Many institutions give students the opportunity to provide input on learning spaces. For example, McGill University prepared its work plan with five principles for the design and implementation of learning spaces based on the National Student Survey for Student Engagement, a survey of students from 1,450 US institutions.2 Including students in the planning stages, as well as in the implementation of, active learning spaces also helps to ensure that these spaces match students’ goals and needs, which further influences academic impact.

Students Rate College Success Tools, WiFi High; Accessibility Efforts Low

If schools were wondering whether student success tools are worth the investment, a survey among students by Educause has put the question to rest. Students rated degree audit tools that show the degree requirements completed as the most useful (ranked by 80 percent of respondents as “very” or “extremely” useful). That was followed by degree planning or mapping applications, which identify courses still needed to complete a degree (77 percent); self-service utilities for conducting student-related business (74 percent); self-service programs for tracking credits, credit transfers and dual enrollment (71 percent); and early-alert systems for flagging possible academic trouble as soon as it surfaces (about 55 percent). In fact, across the board, every category of student success tool saw at least incremental gains year over year, some by more than 10 percentage points.

Preparing Faculty for HQ Online Programs

Screen Shot 2019-11-01 at 1.32.03 PM

At a large urban institution in the heart of North Philadelphia, Temple University’s College of Public Health faced a contemporary problem: How can we keep up with the student demand for high-quality online programs if our faculty aren’t ready? There’s a simple answer: We can’t! So we decided to get our faculty ready and give them the tools to be successful in the online space, whether it’s their first class or their fourteenth. Here’s how we did it.

Scaling Up Online

Like other institutions, we’ve experienced a steady uptick in the number of faculty delivering courses online. Temple’s College of Public Health alone has seen a more than 50 percent increase in online classes within three years, partially due to the creation of seven new fully online graduate programs. With the explosion of new online courses came the need for faculty trained to teach in the traditional classroom to adapt their methods and styles to the online environment.

InFocus exiting digital projector business

WAIT WHAT???

As someone in the AV/IT higher education world for over 25 years, this is so hard to believe!  Going back to when InFocus purchased ASK Proxima, I have been a big fan of InFocus and their projectors.  At one point in my career, I attempted to try another manufacturer, but after three years and a 90% failure rate, I ended up reinstalling the older InFocus projectors we replaced.

This is a very sad day, very sad!

InFocus Corp., once among Oregon’s largest companies, is laying off employees and dropping out of the digital projector business altogether, according to a report this week from the online news site rAVe.

In a brief statement, InFocus President Randy Arnold said the Tigard company “is pivoting its strategic business model which has resulted in a worldwide workforce reduction this week.” Arnold did not immediately respond to a phone call seeking details of the new strategy or the scale of the layoffs.

Transforming STEM Education from a Noun to a Verb, Part One | Tech & Learning

Let’s take a moment and investigate the STEM acronym, after-all it is being used quite a bit across the United States and the world. Often we hear the content areas; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math as being the basis of STEM. While this is a wonderful collection of nouns that can be used to put together a cross-curricular, transdisciplinary, or project based learning unit of study; it seems to leave out many of the other disciplines through this content definition. By focusing just on these four areas we are losing the powerful and authentic learning opportunities that STEM thinking can bring to the classroom.  In fact, we are also leaving some of the most important teachers from other subject areas  out of the equation, or the limited definition does not make them feel a part of an exciting possibility!  Perhaps that is why we see schools and districts adopting STEAM (infuse the arts), and STREAM (add on some Reading. As we see these new models perhaps we should turn it into STREAMIE (include everyone), from there we can go to STREAMIER and STREAMIEST! Better yet, how about STREAMING… wow… it’s a verb! While the idea could make everyone smile, let’s take a look at what STEM might and could actually look like if we facilitated and promoted and all-inclusive subject area model.

AR And VR In The Utility Sector

David Brodosi photography AR VR photoThe energy and utility sectors have been slow adopters of advanced technologies as there’s always been reliance on traditional methods to carry out work procedures. Also, the implementation of any technology involves a large sum of capital investment, which may not be feasible for every utility company. As the power and utility sectors are starting to realize the benefits of using advanced technologies in operations companies are adopting technologies to improve operational efficiency and serve customers better. The use of virtual reality and augmented reality in the utility field have the potential to minimize operational costs, improve safety, and broaden the types of services provided in these industries.

Zoom, Echo Frames, Spatial, Magic Leap, Web Meetings, and Synchronous Online Learning

Why face-to-face meetings are still sometimes what is needed, and what this may tell us about the future of online education.

September 30, 2019

This week, I had one of those uncomfortable realizations that cause me to question my ability to make sense of the world. My latest revelation that everybody else already knows – and which I seem to be the last to grasp – is that sometimes face-to-face discussions are better than online meetings.

That’s right. I had an experience this week where an in-person meeting was superior to a discussion on Zoom.

It turns out that some discussions are better held in a shared physical location. Zoom is still not able to capture the subtleties of body language or substitute for the interpersonal bonding that comes with meeting face-to-face.

High fidelity collaboration, particularly among humans who don’t yet know each other, seems to require more bandwidth than even the most crystal clear of video and audio feeds.

Does this mean that we will be consigned to a lifetime of travel by airplane, train, bus, or car to attend face-to-face meetings?

As an online learning evangelist, how worried should I be about the seemingly insurmountable advantage that geographic co-existence seems to enjoy over collaboration at a distance?

In this same week that I was having my uncomfortable realization that some collaborations are poorly optimized for distance, Amazon decided to release the Echo Frames.

Benchmarks that Inform How a Student Chooses a School

man pointing to yes, no, maybe buttons

When faced with choosing between two institutions, how does a student make the decision about which college or university to attend? It’s a combination of factors, according to a new report from Eduventures, the research arm of NRCCUA. Understanding those factors, according to the report, can help schools better prepare for changes in levels of student interest and influence the outcomes.

Researcher Kim Reid, an Eduventures principal analyst and author of the report, used data on nearly 76,000 students drawn from the company’s “2018 Survey of Admitted Students.” Each student had to make an enrollment choice between at least two schools and provided information and ratings about their ultimate enrollment choice and the next one in line. That analysis allowed Reid to produce an institution-level dataset with 151,676 sets of ratings for 1,383 four-year public and private nonprofit schools. (For-profits were left out of the analysis.)
