Digital Images
Benefits I expected


Archival

Electronic filing
No more hunting and refiling

Flexible sequencing
Not bound by sequence of a carousel

Annotation
Graphic commentary in image analysis

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.

    The Future
    Guiding principles for higher education


    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

    The Future
    Principles for action


    Enrich
    Use technology to collect and distribute rich sources of information.

    Distill
    Use technology to remove routine information transfer and administration from classroom time

    Distinguish
    Cultivate the unique human interaction potential of the classroom as a comparative advantage
