Digital Images
Benefits I expected


Archival
Kodak: A slide has an useful life of three to four hours of total projection time

Electronic filing
No more hunting and refiling

Flexible sequencing
Not bound by sequence of a carousel

Annotation

Integrate images into course content
Turning down the lights means "get to work" not "go to sleep"

Emphasize modelling in technical teaching
Photographs help link analytic methods to the real world

    The Future
    The role of the University and the classroom


    In the near future, hyperlearning will be the core process of nearly all business, work, and home life. . .But education, as an industry and institution, is not just going to fade away or be reformed into the 'classroom of tomorrow.' It's going to collapse suddenly and swiftly. . .like the Soviet Union. . .the World Series and Tom Foley.

    Guiding Principles
    The importance of human interaction


    Teacher interaction
    A person who has access to expert advice and dialog will learn better than someone who doesn't

    Learner interaction
    A person who also has access to interaction and dialog with other motivated learners will learn better still

    Principles for Action
    The emergence of techno-humanism


    Use Technology to:

    Enrich
    Collect and distribute rich sources of information

    Distill
    Remove routine information transfer and administration from classroom time

    Provoke
    Provoke and facilitate interaction among active learners

    Intensify
    Intensify human interaction rather than to replace it
