Pasqua: Transliteracy

This weeks readings focused on the future of technology and how the different mediums are constantly merging. Transliteracy is the notion to communicate across different platforms, tools and media providing the user the opportunity encode and decode what they are trying to communicate. As technology continues to merge to create new tools and products, it will be integrated and impact our lives differently. The second reading explored the technology tools that are emerging. Specifically, the use of emerging technology within higher education.  These tools and technology will impact how educators conduct their course and engage with students. Some of the technology that was discussed included cloud computing, mobile apps, social reading, and learning analytics. The last reading was a letter from the CEO of Google. In his letter, he discussed the future of Googles products and their impacts on the lives of their uses.

With the changing landscape of technology and the changing nature of work, it is crucial for leaders to understand current trends and critically analyze what new technological tools will best help them manage their workforce and accomplish the goals and mission of their organization. The Horizon Report highlighted emerging technologies and the possible impacts on higher education. This article was especially interesting for my current line of work within higher education. This article provided new insight of technologies to research and begin to develop ways to incorporate them. It is important to review reports of this nature to discover what may be on its way.

Here is a video urging libraries on universities to consider transliteracy as they develop programs:

The area that I struggled the most was with the first article and the concept of transliteracy. While I feel that I understand the basic concept, I had a hard time deciphering what the author was trying to communicate. On some level, I felt that he was arguing that it wasn’t appropriate work for the concept.

1)   If you could develop a new technology/tool what would it be?

2)   What is a current technology/tool that has change the way you work?

These articles impact my future assignment by highlighting the possibilities of technology and what is to come. I am not sure what the next assignment will be, but it may be fun to explore an emerging technology and its usefulness within my work.

Transliteracy -Corey Diamond

Brad Czerniak defines transliteracy as, “the ability to encode and decode information between or across languages.” His blog article discusses the many definitions he and others have thrown around . The Horizon Project examined digital media that could be utilized for academia and the many possibilities, such as cloud computing and specific applications. Google CEO Larry Page spoke on the wonders of the search engine and its ability to link people to information they seek instantly, saying, ” People shouldn’t have to navigate Google to get stuff done. It should just happen.”

The ability to integrate technology into an academic setting is something that has really prevailed in the past ten years. More and more individuals are obtaining degrees from online colleges such as the University of Phoenix and Rider even offers an array of online courses. The Horizon project goes into the possibilities technology has to improve our education system tremendously.

The part of Google CEO Larry Page’s letter that stuck the most to me was his quote,”We’ve let a thousand flowers bloom; now we want to put together a coherent bouquet.” Google’s innovation has allowed users to access information and connect with others in ways that are almost unthinkable. They have provided us with the tools and we now have the ability to do what we wish with this power.

Understanding how to integrate technology into any profession, whether it is education or finance or marketing is extremely important for many reasons and can be a giant asset for myself. As we have already learned in our course, having a firm understanding of digital technology is a tremendous weapon for any leader to have in their arsenal. Me personally, knowing how to utilize the technologies in a professional setting gives me a tremendous advantage and upper hand over others. It allows me to think more creatively and explore possibilities less versed professionals are able to.

I did have a difficult time understanding the first article, specifically what the authors final takeaways were. The fact that he provided multiple definitions and counterpoints left me puzzled.

1. How can Rider integrate technology more effectively into their curriculum.

2. Is google+ a social network which could rival Facebook and Twitter in size and growth?

3. What were your main takeaways from Czerniak’s article?

Transliteracy, Horizon, Google – Sonya

Brad Czerniak – On Transliteracy

Brad gave an overview of his opinion and common interest and definition of what he expressed his thought of the definition of Transliteracy. As the argument involved him Sue Thomas and her research group Brad formed his own opinion and blogged about it. Throughout the article Brad is expressing his take on the word Transliteracy and providing readers with an explanation of his theory and thinking.
2-3 three key ides in the reading that related to media, convergence, and leadership. Brad displayed leadership by taking the intuitive to explain and express his feelings and thoughts about something he felt strongly about. He related his thought into theories as he broke down definitions and terms and explaining them to the public. Brad exclaimed transliteration as translitercy is defined by stating “the prefix trans – added to the word literacy has a strong denotation–literacy – the ability to read and write, in a given language. He points out that language is a system of signs (icons, symbols) for encoding and decoding information, which very well can be related to media. He pointed out that the interface language can also be sing, symbols, analogies, literal, and physical attributes as they convey information.
I found it difficult and challenging to grasp the understanding and ask myself a question why the definition couldn’t and Brad’s understanding be on common ground as to what Sue felt. In her response back to Brad was debatable but it just appeared that she wanted to be right. However she did make common sense when discussing what Brad explained about visual language. We all have our opinion about how we see, explain and feel about things I guess this is why people blog to find out what others think.
Are there any real solid definitions for the terms?
Has other responded to his post other than what’s showing on the current article?
I can see how this article and its topics can be explored a little more. I personally would like to read what others thought about his blog. Also I would like to see if he had other articles and see what there topics are.

Google – Velocity, Execution and Focus

The overview of this article was so many things to me as a reader.  The CEO, Larry Page, is giving his users, readers, innovators, and heads up if you will to the remarkable things he and his company is doing.  Sharing and making users aware of what’s next in creations and what they are working on for the near future keeping users in mind. In this vast world of technology people are looking for the velocity of having things right at their finger tips, and CEO, Larry Page wants his users to standby they have more technology coming to give user just what they are “searching” for.

2-3  There keys things stated in this article that I found profound is that the CEO took the leadership in reorganizing the management team to improve responsibility and accountability across Google.  Seeing things that needs to be improved, changed or reorganized to become better in a business that is this big change is inevitable because it’s servicing the basically the world of technology.  As for media and convergence, they have closed or combined over 30 products, including projects like Knol and Sidewiki and giving Google Search as visual refresh, that’s now cleaner, more consistent, and a beautiful look.  Companies tend to survive when they change, look for new creations and inventions. They have gone mobile by using the Android of technology. 

A company like GOOGLE you have to be innovative and the best part about this is that they listen to their users. As GOOGLE continue to make unique and unexpected changes they introduce GOOGLE+.  This is a new step into the technology sharing world.  So when you sign up for this application if you will, you can use what’s called Circles to group people into different categories, such as people who have the same interest as you and you can share things like movies, videos, but just within your circles that you create.  So image your own personal website search that only gives you what you’re looking for and now what others think you want. 

What I found difficult to understand is this reading is HOW does this company keep up with the technology?  Just reading all the amazing features, tools, and searching features, my head started to go in circles.  For those who appreciate technology and live on the edge of what I would call a “microwave life” wanting things done faster than a “slow cooker” would definitely enjoy and love what GOOGLE is doing.

My questions are:

How the heck do they keep up with the forever changing world of technology?

How often do they make changes and updates to their software and their technology?

I can truly see this topic as something to explore but where does one start with even trying to figure this out.

Blog #6 – Transliteracy, Horizon, and Google – Christina A. Pascucci

Re-Definition and Re-Re-Definition of Transliteracy
Brad Czerniak

1.  In the first reading, Brad Czerniak defines transliteracy and discusses other elements within the topic, such as language, visual language, interface language, platforms and tools, and then offered a re-definition to transliteracy.

Next, the NMC Horizon Project Short List:  2012 Higher Education Edition discussed a variety of new digital media becoming available, the amount of time it would take to implement such technologies, and the relevance and use they could have (or are already having) in the academic setting, such as Cloud Computing, Mobile Apps, and Social Reading to name a few.  It was interesting to read about these different technologies and how they can impact higher education.

The last reading, 2012 Update from the CEO of Google, Larry Page, was another interesting read and talked about how Google should be a simple experience that allows users to do what they want and need without unnecessary frustrations.  Google’s concept has been to make their products work well together to best benefit the user, such as through sharing, which is the main idea behind Google+, which created a “social layer across all [their] products so users connect with the people who matter to them” (Larry Page).

2./3.  In regards to the discussion of Google+ from CEO Larry Page, this program is allowing people to be leaders in the digital world by literally having followers, such as some users having already acquired over a million followers.  In addition to the numerous people who have embraced Google+, there is a lot of depth to the information flowing between users and they are becoming very engaged in the process of sharing through this medium.  Google+ is a leader as a new form of communication for people to engage in and it is allowing users to lead discussions and information sharing on a variety of topics as selected by the users.  It also allows for convergence because of the variety of types of information that can be shared via this method.  As the CEO mentioned, Google users can recommend search results and videos they enjoyed to other users for example.  Users can also share their own ideas with people in their circles and beyond if they would like.

The main concept that I took from the Horizon Project Short List was that new technology will allow for new ways of learning, which is great because different people take in information in different ways (different learning styles).  Perhaps the use of different technology can make learning an easier or less frustrating process for some students.  Augments reality could allow students the opportunity to see what they are learning about from a teacher’s/professor’s lecture and the information they are reading in a book; plus, they could see it from all angles (3D).  Game-based learning can help students learn through application because it provides for simulations and role-playing; students then have to figure out how to react in different situations and come up with creative problem solving.  Gesture-based computing also allows for different types of learning and this would appeal to kinetic learners who learn best by doing.  Many of these media mentioned can also contribute to teambuilding and group work within the classroom.  The key trends mentioned made a lot of sense and I touched upon some of them in my above elaboration, such as collaborative learning, interactive learning, and studying/working in different time and space.

Challenges exist within current technology, such as not meeting the demand for personalized learning which I would say is very relevant to those with various learning and/or developmental disabilities.  As discussed in the significant challenges section of the Horizon Project Short List, “one-size-fits all teaching methods are neither effective nor acceptable for today’s diverse students.”  Development of new technology for education can “provide more learner choice and control and allow for differentiated instruction.”  As we move forward, technology can benefit many students who could have potentially given up on an education in the past because the methods were not conducive to their circumstances.

4./5.  Can we talk about the technologies mentioned as needing 4-5 years for adoption within the Horizon Project Short List?  I found myself not understanding those as well as the others, especially the Internet of Things.

It was mentioned that there are institutional barriers that are challenging change to moving forward with new technologies within education.  And there are obviously some schools out there that are more innovative as far as moving forward with and experimenting with different technologies:  Besides having the money to do so, what are these schools doing to break through these barriers of resistance to change/comfort with status quo?

I looked up some information here; I did not find much, but I found this blog about what others thought about the idea of resistance to change on the part of teachers:  Resistance to Change and Teachers – “I just can’t learn technology because it’s too hard.”

I found this article called Columbia College Embraces Technology as well, which talks about some of the technology Columbia College has brought to their campus.  They are not specifically in the classroom, but they involve academics and students’ interactions with the institution.

 

Something that I find difficult, which I kept thinking while reading the second two readings (despite also recognizing all of the positive effects) is simply the idea that too much technology will make our lives too easy and that could hurt us.  What are the effects of this and how do we avoid technology hurting us by making us helpless without it?

Wall-E Clip – The Sad Future of Human Kind

6.   From the NMC Horizon Project Short List:  2012 Higher Education Edition, I thought about the ways that some of these new technologies could enhance distance education and group learning within higher education.  Mobile apps could allow students to share a variety of information with other students they may be working with and they can also be utilized for getting the information from their school that they need, such as schedules and grades or news in regards to academics, athletics, and events.  Social reading could allow students working in a group to share parts of readings that they have done with each other that they found particularly interesting, share notes they have made, and have discussions virtually (which would be helpful with distance education courses especially, since they do not meet in an actually classroom).  Something like this may have also been helpful in studying for the comprehensive exam, especially when members of our study group were not in the same place as the rest of the group.  Instead, we skype studied during Spring Break, which was helpful for our study group member out of state for the break.  Augmented reality sounds really neat as well.  It mentioned 3D images and visiting historic sites at different periods of time or visualizing car repairs as a couple examples, so it would probably be interesting to use in biology classes (especially high school) instead of performing actual dissections (or at least that is the thought that came to my mind).

I enjoyed learning more about Google+ through the 2012 Update from the CEO and it made me think of ways it could be beneficial to me in my career, especially as my current colleagues and I move on from Rider to other institutions within various Student Affairs positions.  I think utilizing Google+’s Circles to stay connected in a professional setting and then incorporating our future colleagues as well could serve a great purpose for professional development, brainstorming, and continued networking.  We can share articles, websites, and videos we find interesting and helpful in our work to continue to help each other out and support one another just like we do in our positions currently, despite the distance that will inevitably be between us soon.  (Graduating soon is bittersweet; it has been really starting to hit me that I will essentially be losing, as in proximity, people that have been such a big part of my life for the past two years, but I have learned that technology can be really beneficial here to help us stay connected and colleagues despite being at different institutions and potentially in very different areas of the country in just a few months.)

The next-generation search topic in the Google CEO update was also interesting to me as someone who plans to continue my education beyond graduate school at some point.  Research can be somewhat difficult at times, but if Google were to better know me, my search results could become more useful to what I am actually looking for by cutting out information that is irrelevant.

Transliteracy/Horizon/Google Blog- Cara

1. The first article on transliteracy basically defines what the author believes to be a correct definition of the term. The author “re-re-defines” transliteracy as, “Transliteracy is the ability to encode and decode information between or across languages.” The second reading, NMC Horizon Project Short List, describes future abilities and uses for cloud technology and demonstrates how they are currently being used and how they can be used more appropriately and effectively in the future.  The third reading is a statement from the Google CEO basically outlining and explaining changes, goals and objectives for the company.

2/3/7. Whenever there is discussion of technology in the classroom, I am firm that technology should never be used in place of the classroom, but more in conjunction with it.  This might just be my style of learning, but even in online classes I feel that there is a lack of involvement, understanding and connection between the participants and the idea of schools using technology to teach intro level courses makes me uncomfortable.  I understand that some people like to learn at 3 a.m. from the comfort of their own home, but I feel relying too heavily on technology, like in any situation that is typically in-person, the lack of interaction is detrimental to students.

This isn’t to say that some aspects of education are suited for technology, as I thought that the article brought up some really useful tools.  The first tool that I found to be very cool, which I actually have a hard time admitting to since I am avidly against e-books, is the practice in social reading for the reader to be able to directly tweet the author (p. 3).  This connection to the source is so cool in the fact that ideas and motivations of the author can be clarified, whereas previously they could only be assumed by the reader.

Another tool that I think is incredibly useful, which really isn’t new at all, but technology can make it much more advanced, is the use of games for learning.  I think when people are having fun they absorb and remember more of what they are doing.  As a toddler and young child, most of my learning was done through games.  Games disguise the work involved in learning by making it fun and enjoyable. There is no way I would have ever wanted to read about the Oregon Trail as a fifth grader or remember anything I read about, but 15 years later I remember trying to ford that river with my damn oxen. The article says it will take 2-3 years for game based learning to be adopted on the cloud, but I think that will be easily accepted among all educators (p. 7.)

Just for nostalgia’s sake

I also think the augmented reality is pretty useful, especially in the example they give about students being able to see what a historical site looked like hundreds of years ago (p. 6).  Being able to use that visual learning tool which wasn’t previously available is a great way to keep students interested and appeal to students who learning styles are more visual and were left out in the past because of the lack of technology.

I love Google and I admit that I use it daily. I am totally dependent upon it and I really would be sad if it were gone.  That being said, I think they need to focus on some of their more basic applications before moving onto these more grand ones that are not going to be widely available.  I am not saying that they shouldn’t be doing any work on them, but there needs to be more attention paid to the basic applications that everyone uses.  For instance, Google Maps.  Google Maps are useful, but I have gotten lost the two times I decided to use them as my GPS. Why? Because the directions were wrong. In one trip alone, the map declined to tell me twice which way to go on the next road I needed (I chose left the first time but it should have been right, then I chose right the second time when it should have been left).

This is just a basic example of little things that are being overlooked, most likely because they are focusing on the big things that aren’t reaching people.  I think the real future of technology should lie in accessibility.  I’ve said this numerous times, but technology for the sake of technology isn’t beneficial, but technology that helps people is.

4. As I said before, I find any idea that the classroom should be digitized difficult. I just don’t understand how losing the interaction of a classroom and that discussion is beneficial to students.  Again, I hated my online courses and really felt that I was not given the advantage to utilize my peers and professors that I do when I am in a classroom.  I suppose the only argument that I could understand is using Skype, but even then interaction is limited.  When everyone is in a classroom, there are no technical difficulties that prevent discussion.

5. Is Google making libraries irrelevant? What is the future role of libraries?

Is Google + as popular and useful as Google thinks it is?

6.  I am not sure what the final project, but I am positive I will Google something while working on it or use Google in some capacity.

Transliteracy, Horizon & Google–Tracy Durham

1. In the first reading Brad Czerniak begins by recanting his previous statements regarding transliteracy. He apologizes for referring to it as a “…made up term for the same old stuff.”  He states that he had this opinion because his definition of literacy was not accurate.  He goes on to try and prove his point by explaining several terms as they relate to the topic: Transliteration, Language, Visual Language,  Interface Language, and  Platforms and Tools. The main point I believe he was trying to get across was that as a result of his research on the subject, transliteracy is an existing term which comes from the verb “to transliterate” and it does have meaning.

The Horizon article explained the different areas of social media and how they are becoming useful for teaching, learning and creative inquiry.  I found this article to be particularly interesting since it touched on some of the issues and topics we’ve discussed in class this semester.  It was interesting to see the timeline set up in the project.

The final article by Google CEO Larry Page, he explains what the company’s visions have been and how the focus has always been on making life easier for the user.  He goes on to explain how the goal of the company has always been to make them a company people would love.  He explains that the long term goals of Google evolved from making the search engine assessable on desktops to mobile devices to tablets and now today Android devises.

2/3. The most important aspect of Brad Czerniak’s article for me was that he was willing to go back and do further research on the topic of transliteracy to find out what it was really all about.  I think this was huge of him because sometime bloggers take their own views and try to make them everyone’s reality.  When in fact the first statements he made were simply his opinion on what he saw transliteracy to be. ” The application of the term literacy across media, as such, was hasty since I myself had not defined literacy as pertinent to my argument. I apologize for this basic error.”

I thought the Horizon article made some very interesting points about how digital media has become relevant in teaching, learning and creative inquiry.  The section on cloud based services in particular were interesting to me because of our use of them in this class.  They have significant relevance to our ability to create our project assignments and weekly blog posts.  “Cloud-based services include a wide range of increasingly powerful tools for almost any platform a user might choose, or any task a user might need to do”(Horizon, p. 3). There are many applications available to us in order to create and present our work to the class.

The other thing I found fascinating about the Horizon article was the section about mobile phones.  Perhaps it’s because of my resent “upgrade” from my old cell phone to a smartphone.  I thought this section was particularly relevant to me.  As the article states “mobile phones — distinct from new sorts of larger format mobile devices such as tablets — have as a category proven more interesting and more capable with each passing year. According to a report from mobile manufacturer Ericsson, by 2015 80% of people accessing the Internet worldwide will be doing so from a mobile device. At the 2011 Mobile World Congress, Google CEO Eric Schmidt noted that for every baby born that year, 30 Android phones would be activated. Mobiles are becoming better understood in the academic world; there has been a significant amount of time spent finding creative ways to incorporate them both in the physical space and as a tool to help students learn from a distance” (Horizon, p. 3)  I find this truly fascinating because I am able to connect to the internet and do everything from typing a letter, to getting driving directions right from my phone.  It means I only need the phone and not 10 other devices.  My load is lighter and I still have access to everything.  Using it as a phone sometimes is secondary to everything else I need it for…

All of that said about the relevance of the mobile device brings me to the Google article.  I found what Page said about making people’s lives better to be interesting because certain aspects of my live have been made easy by using a smartphone. And when I think about the statistics in this article I am amazed. Page states in his article, “Android is on fire, and the pace of mobile innovation has never been greater. Over 850,000 devices are activated daily through a network of 55 manufacturers and more than 300 carriers. Android is a tremendous example of the power of partnership, and it just gets better with each version.”(2012)

Google believes in creating products that will make people’s lives better and touch them in a way that nothing else can.  We have seen it in many of the products they have produced, Gmail, Googledocs, etc.  These all give the user the ability to have access from anywhere.  Their latest product, Project Glass is sure to be one that will give the user access to everything from anywhere and maybe even change the world. “I believe that by producing innovative technology products that touch people deeply, we will enable you to do truly amazing things that change the world.”(Page, 2012)

4. I found the article about Transliteracy to be the most confusing.  However, I was able to better understand the concept of the topic after reading through the definitions of the terms.

5.My questions are:

1. I would like to discuss topic of Transliteracy in more detail in class if possible so that I can fully understand it.

2. Does the use of devises such as Project Glass bring us closer to being more dependent on digital media in our daily lives?

6.  Although I don’t know what our next project topic will be, I am certain that I will use Google in some way to create it.  I will also use my smartphone and other forms of digital media discussed this week to create the final project.  They are very relevant to me in this class in my everyday life.

Blog #6 3 readings

1. This week the readings were about Transliteracy, the future of technology for High Education and the present stage where Google talks about the services it has to offer to its users.The article On Transliteracy, the author Brad Czerniak, discusses the misunderstandings of word meanings by different audiences and how different media can cause the different meanings. The second reading NMC Horizon Project Short List, discusses the current to future interaction students may have in their higher education classrooms. From Video Games to still having the face to face interaction with their professors and describes the positive and negatives on each. Each topic given also allows the reader to further research each topic with links to other articles about the specific topics. The last article is a letter from Google CEO Larry Page. Page discusses Google and the easy services it provides to its users and the excellence it strives for to make Google as user friendly and easy as possible.

2&3. In these readings there were a lot of key ideas of leadership and media as well as convergence. In the first article Czerniak gives us the definition of transliteracy as “Transliteracy is the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media from signing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks.” I think this is a very important topic for leaders or those who want to become leaders as it it is important for them to communicate clearly to their audiences while it is their customers employees or colleagues. They also must be able to use different types of medium to get across their message as people are receiving and searching for information in many ways while through the written word in a letter or by a text message they can receive. I just recently got my taxes done and they asked me if I wanted to receive a letter in the mail or a text message for when I got my return. I feel like 2 years ago or event a year ago this wasn’t event an option. The many different ways people can get their information is amazing and leaders should be knowledgeable of these ways in order to get their message out effectively and to the masses. An example of convergence comes from the second reading The NMC Horizon Project Short List. In there the first concept it talks about in higher education is “Cloud Computing”. In the description of the concept it says “Cloud computing has become the unifying factor among content and
applications on the many devices people use in everyday life. Whether connecting at home, work, school, on the road, or in social spaces, nearly everyone who uses computers relies on cloud
computing to access their information and applications.” To me as I have discussed before in class how technology has integrated and has taking over our everyday life. It is almost the only way of life is to go through a computer. Even if people do not use the computer their information whether its, government, medical or even some religious is in online or maintained by a computer software. Also in the Shortlist reading, I loved one of the concepts that can be transpired in a classroom or a virtual classroom. The idea of Gaming for the class where there is Game-Based Learning. I think it would be great to have “games that are goal-oriented; social game environments; non-digital games that are easy to construct and play; games developed expressly for education; and commercial games that
lend themselves to refining team and group skills,” for classroom learning and especially the idea of “Role-playing, collaborative problem solving, and other forms of simulated experiences are recognized for having broad applicability across a wide
range of disciplines.” Although role playing and this concepts are not new to the gaming world as I know there my brothers hobbies but would be great for the classroom.

http://nlabnetworks.typepad.com/transliteracy/page/4/
The link above goes is an article Tranlietracy discusses a book called The Shallows by Nick Carr which talks about how the internet has changed how people think. Very interesting article and keeping with the theme of technology is an extension of ourselves.

4. Although I enjoyed reading all three article. I had a hard time understanding a few things. First not a concept that I was confused about but when Czerniak used Wikipedia as a reference. I though Wikipedia could not be used a great reference as people can edit the information at anytime.

5. Which type of learning are you most looking forward to or would enjoy the most? What else would you like Google to add to their site or services they offer? What do you think of the Googles “cirlces” and have you used them?

6. There were several instances while reading these article that I thought “i already do this” especially from the Short List reading. Staring with the cloud computing and how I use this as a way to save my work and make sure my work is available with any computer. Last week for our second assignment, I could not rely on email or a USB drive for my presentation. I put it on Facebook where I knew I would be able to access it to present to the class. I also was able to connect to the section where they talked about Application and mobile devices. As previously presented in my first assignment, my mobile devices and application are part of my everyday work.
