What is Technology?
  • A Definition of Technology
  • The human process of applying resources to
    satisfy our wants and needs to extend our
    capabilities.
  • Technology is defined above as the process we use
    to solve problems and extend our human
    capabilities. We can also think of technology as
    knowledge and as hardware (artifacts).

What about Media?
  • What do you mean, media?
  • Not mediums (thats spiritualism)!
  • Nor
  • When the media ask him George W. Bush a
    question, he answers, Can I use a lifeline?
    Robin Williams
  • 2media 1 a medium of cultivation, conveyance,
    or expression especially MEDIUM 2b1medium 2
    a means of effecting or conveying something b
    plural usually media (1) a channel or system of
    communication, information, or entertainment

4
Is there a connection?
  • Media are for communication
  • Therefore, technology applications in media
    extend our communication capabilities
  • In developing this site, we, the students of the
    Vancouver Film School-Multimedia, first had to
    define what the term media involved. It was our
    belief that the word itself implies the notion of
    communication. Therefore, anything that was once
    used to relay a message would be applicable.

  • Dead Media?
  • . . . some media do, in fact, perish. Such as
    the phenakistoscope. The teleharmonium. The
    Edison wax cylinder. The stereopticon. The
    Panorama. Early 20th century electric searchlight
    spectacles. Morton Heilig's early virtual
    reality. Telefon Hirmondo. The various species of
    magic lantern. The pneumatic transfer tubes that
    once riddled the underground of Chicago. Was the
    Antikythera Device a medium? How about the Big
    Character Poster Democracy Wall in Peking in the
    early 80s?
  • Never heard of any of these? Well, that's the
    problem.
  • Bruce Sterling Dead Media Manifesto

What is Educational Technology?
  • Educational technology is
  • the application of technology in education
  • or, the application of devices that extend our
    capabilities in ways that enhance instruction
  • Thus, chalk and a blackboard, pen and paper,
    textbooks and the big ol pointer, they all are
    forms of educational technology!

Technology includes Web 2.0
  • Blogs and podcasts, oh my!
  • Blogs and podcasts are changing the way we
    interact with information on the Internet . . .
    These are part of a reinvention of the Internet,
    referred to as Web 2.0, which is focused on using
    Internet technologies to connect people and
    information.
  • While the idea as a whole extends into social
    bookmarking, collaborative development, and other
    tools, Web 2.0 is firmly rooted in the basic
    ideas of blogs.

Read Harriss blog Infomancy

The implications of web 2.0
  • Power of Anyone
  • Clay Shirky, author of Here Comes Everybody,
    describes the coming of "mass amateurization" in
    the Power of One. He says the printing press was
    the first mass amateurization. Before the
    printing press, only scribes could read and
    write. After the printing press, it became common
    for everyone to read and write. Today we have the
    Internet and all the devices that are a part of
    it. Today information is no longer disseminated
    only by large media corporations. Anyone anywhere
    has the potential to disseminate information and
    opinion.
