Building bridges for the future through collaborative projects
1) The most interesting thing about learning analytics to me was that students and teachers can now use them to help change education to a way that helps them learn faster and more conveniently. They can use mobile apps to help them study and learn their educational material. These apps help both students and teachers because they can use them to learn their material on the go, such as from a phone or tablet. Mobile apps have been much more convenient to all who use them and have benefited everyone they are used by. Apps in the future will continue to progress.
2) In my NetGen norm, which was Entertainment in Learning Analytics, my group and I learned all about the entertainment portion of learning analytics. We wrote about the new technology in learning analytics and about the future that will be coming soon. Some of the new accomplishments include mobile apps, gesture based computing, and games. Without the technology of learning analytics, none of these would be possible. The future of learning analytics will continue to progress throughout the years and will make our technology more complex. They will make our society progress faster and will bring many changes to the way we entertain ourselves.
3A) The outsourced video that was requested of me was of someone using an ipad or an iphone to translate something from English to French. I am not sure if my outsourced clip made it into my persons video because they have not posted it onto the ning.
3B) I requested a video someone looking at their smart phone and saying "These apps really help me with my school work and they are convenient too!" I received the video in a timely manner and I used it in my final NetGen project video. The person who did my video did a very nice job of completing it.
4) My initial idea for my video was for two students to be conversing and one student having a smart phone with mobile apps while the other did not. The student with the smart phone would explain to the other how convenient using mobile apps was and would suggest that the his friend get one. I think the overall quality of the video was good considering that it was filmed on an iphone. It could have been better and I know what to different next time I create a video. On the next video I create, I will make sure to take it when the sun not shining in my direction because it creates a glare when the video is watched. I will also make sure that the script is reviewed by a more experienced script writer. To improve my audio I would make sure that the person who recorded it took their time while saying it. I think this person deserves recognition because they put a lot of hard work into their video.
5) The most useful thing I have learned in this project is how to work with others.
