In 2017 my Website was migrated to the clouds and reduced in size.
Hence some links below are broken.
One thing to try if a “www” link is broken is to substitute “faculty” for “www”
For example a broken link
http://www.trinity.edu/rjensen/Pictures.htm
can be changed to corrected link
http://faculty.trinity.edu/rjensen/Pictures.htm
However in some cases files had to be removed to reduce the size of my Website
Contact me at

New Learning Institute --- http://newlearninginstitute.org/

Technology is changing the way students learn. Is it changing the way colleges teach?

Not enough, says George Siemens, associate director of research and development at the University of Manitoba’s Learning Technologies Centre.

While colleges and universities have been “fairly aggressive” in adapting their curricula to the changing world, Mr. Siemens told The Chronicle, “What we haven’t done very well in the last few decades is altering our pedagogy.”

To help get colleges thinking about how they might adapt their teaching styles to the new ways students absorb and process information, Mr. Siemens and Peter Tittenberger, director of the center, have created a Web-based guide, called the Handbook of Emerging Technologies for Learning.

Taking their own advice, they have outfitted the handbook with a wiki function that will allow readers to contribute their own additions.

In the its introduction, the handbook declares the old pedagogical model—where the students draw their information primarily from textbooks, newspapers, and their professors—dead. “Our learning and information acquisition is a mash-up,” the authors write. “We take pieces, add pieces, dialogue, reframe, rethink, connect, and ultimately, we end up with some type of pattern that symbolizes what’s happening ‘out there’ and what it means to us.” Students are forced to develop new ways of making sense of this flood of information fragments.

But Mr. Siemens said that colleges had been slow to appreciate this fact. “I don’t see a lot of research coming out on what universities might look like in the future,” he said. “If how we interact with information and with each other fundamentally changes, it would suggest that the institution also needs to change.”

Preface

This Handbook of Emerging Technologies for Learning (HETL) has been designed as a resource for educators planning to incorporate technologies in their teaching and learning activities.

Introduction

How is education to fulfill its societal role of clarifying confusion when tools of control over information creation and dissemination rest in the hands of learners[3], contributing to the growing complexity and confusion of information abundance?

Change Pressures and Trends

Global, political, social, technological, and educational change pressures are disrupting the traditional role (and possibly design) of universities. Higher education faces a "re-balancing" in response to growing points of tension along the following fault lines...

What we know about learning

Over the last century, educator’s understanding of the process and act of learning has advanced considerably.

Technology, Teaching, and Learning

Technology is concerned with "designing aids and tools to perfect the mind". As a means of extending the sometimes limited reach of humanity, technology has been prominent in communication and learning. Technology has also played a role in classrooms through the use of movies, recorded video lectures, and overhead projectors. Emerging technology use is growing in communication and in creating, sharing, and interacting around content.

Media and technology

A transition from epistemology (knowledge) to ontology (being) suggests media and technology need to be employed to serve in the development of learners capable of participating in complex environments.

Change cycles and future patterns

It is not uncommon for theorists and thinkers to declare some variation of the theme "change is the only constant". Surprisingly, in an era where change is prominent, change itself has not been developed as a field of study. Why do systems change? Why do entire societies move from one governing philosophy to another? How does change occur within universities?

New Learners? New Educators? New Skills?

New literacies (based on abundance of information and the significant changes brought about technology) are needed. Rather than conceiving literacy as a singular concept, a multi-literacy view is warranted.

Tools

Each tool possesses multiple affordances. Blogs, for example, can be used for personal reflection and interaction. Wikis are well suited for collaborative work and brainstorming. Social networks tools are effective for the formation of learning and social networks. Matching affordances of a particular tool with learning activities is an important design and teaching activity

Research

Evaluating the effectiveness of technology use in teaching and learning brings to mind Albert Einstein’s statement: "Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted". When we begin to consider the impact and effectiveness of technology in the teaching and learning process, obvious questions arise: "How do we measure effectiveness? Is it time spent in a classroom? Is it a function of test scores? Is it about learning? Or understanding?"

Conclusion

Through a process of active experimentation, the academy’s role in society will emerge as a prominent sensemaking and knowledge expansion institution, reflecting of the needs of learners and society while maintaining its role as a transformative agent in pursuit of humanity’s highest ideals.

MIT's Video Lecture Search Engine: Watch the video at --- http://web.sls.csail.mit.edu/lectures/
Researchers at MIT have released a video and audio search tool that solves one of the most challenging problems in the field: how to break up a lengthy academic lecture into manageable chunks, pinpoint the location of keywords, and direct the user to them. Announced last month, the MIT
Lecture Browser website gives the general public detailed access to more than 200 lectures publicly available though the university's OpenCourseWare initiative. The search engine leverages decades' worth of speech-recognition research at MIT and other institutions to
convert audio
into text and make it searchable.

MIT's Video Lecture Search Engine: Watch the video at --- http://web.sls.csail.mit.edu/lectures/
Researchers at MIT have released a video and audio search tool that solves one of the most challenging problems in the field: how to break up a lengthy academic lecture into manageable chunks, pinpoint the location of keywords, and direct the user to them. Announced last month, the MIT Lecture Browser website gives the general public detailed access to more than 200 lectures publicly available though the university's OpenCourseWare initiative. The search engine leverages decades' worth of speech-recognition research at MIT and other institutions to convert audio into text and make it searchable.
Kate Greene, MIT's Technology Review, November 26, 2007 --- http://www.technologyreview.com/Infotech/19747/?nlid=686&a=f

C:
One of the oldest programming languages still in common use, C was created in the early 1970s. In 1978, the language's legendary and still widely read manual, the 800-page "The C Programming Language," saw print for the first time.

Objective-C:
The original C programming language was so influential that it inspired a lot of similarly named successors, all of which took their inspiration from the original but added features from other languages. Objective-C has grown in popularity as the standard language to build iPhone apps, though Apple's been pushing its own Swift language, too.

JavaScript:
This is a super-popular programming language primarily used in web apps. But it doesn't have much to do with Java besides the name. JavaScript runs a lot of the modern web, but it also catches a lot of flak for slowing browsers down and sometimes exposing users to security vulnerabilities.

Visual Basic:
Microsoft's Visual Basic (and its successor, Visual Basic .NET) tries to make programming easier with a graphical element that lets you change portions of a program by dragging and dropping. It's old, and some think it's lacking features next to other languages, but with Microsoft's backing, it's still got its users out there.

Ruby:
 Like Python, developers like this 24-year-old language because it's easy to read and write the code. Also popular is Rails, an add-on framework for Ruby that makes it really easy to use it to build web apps. The language's official motto is "A programmer's best friend."

This language traces back to 1989, and is loved by its fans for its highly readable code. Many programmers suggest it's the easiest language to get started with.

A lot of website menus and mobile app menus are written with CSS, in conjunction with JavaScript and garden-variety HTML.

R:
This is the programming language of choice for statisticians and anybody doing data analysis. Google has gone on record as a big fan of R, for the power it gives to its mathematicians.

Jensen Comment
Some professions have more job security than others. Interestingly, the world's oldest profession has the highest job security except for some threatened sidelines like phone sex.

Whereas most teachers are threatened by robotics, the last to go will be K-8 teachers. Players in the professional sports are safe for now. Robots may play a sport much better, but fans aren't much interested in buying season tickets to watch teams of robots slug it out. After writing this it dawned on me how much time is now wasted on video and computer games. Alas, the NFL and the NBA  and Nascar may be in big trouble.

We're not far from the days when robots will conceive, carry, and deliver human babies, although it will take much longer to replace the contents of live sperm and live eggs. Milking machines may still need chemicals from hay and corn, but the cows themselves will be robots. I wonder if they will still have to pollute the air with farts and belches?

Elections of the future might be less graphic if robots replace the likes of Donald Trump and Bill Clinton. But think of how boring the debates will become when IBM's Deep Blue faces off against Google's Deep Pink as candidates to become the Mayor of Chicago. Robotic cops will one day arrive to break up domestic disputes and street riots. There won't be many traffic cops needed for self-driving cars and trucks.

Ironically, we used to fear the ethical issues of creating master races with cloning ---
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloning
Somehow the debate loses much of it's fury when creating master robots.

The enormous controversy will be fulfillment of life for humans. Work became an enormous part of life's fulfillment most of us still left on this planet. Retirement eases the transition between work and death, but what most of us old folks dread the most is becoming totally "workless" while vegetating in nursing homes. We'd rather give our bodies to soylent green cookie factories ---

"Here's the impossibly complicated way calculators used to look," by Sarah Lewin, PRI, December 18, 2014 ---
http://www.pri.org/stories/2014-12-18/heres-impossibly-complicated-way-calculators-used-look

Mark Glusker had heard rumors about the mechanical calculator, a Monroe PC-1421that it was one the most complicated devices of the sort ever built; that it was powerful but notoriously difficult to keep running; that it was at the pinnacle of an effort to compete with the first electronic calculators.

“It’s kind of a holy grail machine for me,” says Glusker, a mechanical engineer and collector of early calculators. “When you’d read the specifications, you’d think, ‘That’s just crazy.’” And once he finally got his hands on the 40-pound behemoth from a retiring professor at the University of Iowa, it proved just as intricate as he’d imagined.

“There’s so much going on inside there,” says photographer Kevin Twomey, who photographed the PC-1421 and other calculators in Glusker's collection. “These chains, levers and gears were almost reminding me of how ligaments and joints are working together."

The Monroe PC-1421, with a price tag of $1,175, at the top end for a mechanical calculator, debuted in 1964 — right as electronic calculators were overtaking mechanical ones. To stay relevant, manufacturers constantly fought to improve the speed of their machines. For instance, while early mechanical calculators required an operator to turn a crank by hand in order to add, subtract, multiply, and divide, later models like the PC-1421 turned automatically with a motor.

Jensen Comment
When I was an undergraduate you were not fully dressed unless you had a complicated slide rule fastened to your belt. There were a lot of things that could be done with those slide rules, but I only used them for simple arithmetic and logarithmic calculations.

When I worked as a staff accountant in the Denver office of Ernst & Ernst, we had a few desk calculators that were fun to watch. There was a floating bar on the top that went rata-tat-tat as it moved in jumping motions from left to right while doing arithmetic. These were Monroe calculators much like the what is pictured at

Tails --- https://tails.boum.org/

For those readers concerned with Internet privacy, Tails will be a welcome innovation. The free, open-source, live operating system can be used from almost any computer. It runs through Tor, an anonymity network of over 6,000 users from around the world, so that readers can surf the web anonymously without sites picking up their IP addresses or other revealing information. The service makes sure sites leave no trace on your computer, and can also be used to encrypt files, emails, and instant messaging. Downloading the program is as easy as clicking a button.


Mailpile --- https://www.mailpile.is/ 

Mailpile provides a "secure way to read, write, and organize piles and piles of email." The service is free and easily downloadable to any computer. Searching is quick and easy; the platform is designed to be fast, even on slow computers. All of your mail is encrypted on your computer so you control your information. The encryption is built in, rather than an afterthought like some other email platforms. In addition, unlike web based email companies, there are no ads.

  • Tweet Shot --- http://www.tweetshot.com 

    For readers who spend time on Twitter following worldwide trends for business, education, marketing, or any other purpose, TweetShot provides a useful service. The app has two modes: TweetShot Trend Mode and TweetShot Tag Mode. TweetShot Trend Mode monitors the top ten trends in any country around the world in realtime. Readers may simply select the nation they wish to monitor, and TweetShot will provide up-to-date snapshots of what is trending. TweetShot Tag Mode allows readers to find out what hashtags particular users are tweeting about. Simply enter a user's Twitter handle and TweetShot will retrieve the top four hashtags that the user tweets about. In all, TweetShot is a useful tool for readers who are tracking trends on the Internet and is available for both Android (3.0+) and Apple (iOS 7.0 or later) devices.


    Identifont --- http://www.identifont.com/ 

    Identifont is for readers who love the visual presentation of letters and alphabets, and want to understand more. The site helps users identify fonts by certain clues, and works in five possible categories: Fonts by Appearance, Fonts by Name, Fonts by Similarity, Fonts by Picture, and Fonts by Designer/Publisher. For example, if you have found a font that you love, but don't know the name, Identifont will have you answer a series of questions to identify the font, such as "Do the characters have serifs?" "What style is the upper-case 'Q'tail?" and others. A similar process can be engaged for the other four categories, as well. Typeface lovers will find much to love on Identifont.

    "Japanese Artists Solve The Problem of How To Sell Multiple Copies of Interactive Artworks," MIT's Technology Review, November 16, 2014 ---
    http://www.technologyreview.com/view/532586/japanese-artists-solve-the-problem-of-how-to-sell-multiple-copies-of-interactive/?utm_campaign=newsletters&utm_source=newsletter-daily-all&utm_medium=email&utm_content=20141117

    If you’re a modern art fan, you may have bought a copy of a Picasso or a Pollock. But chances are, you’ve never been able to buy a copy of an interactive art installation…until now.

    Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo in Japan displayed a giant canvas showing four snowmen in a wintry scene. People approaching the canvas found their faces superimposed onto the heads of the four snowmen, so that their facial expressions determined the mood of the scene.

    The installation, called Yukinko, proved popular and ran until the end of August with an estimated 100,000 visitors.

    This installation was unusual because, unlike other interactive artworks, anybody could by a copy to run at home. That’s a potentially significant money spinner for the museum and the artists Mayuko Kanazawa and a couple of pals from Osaka University.

    While it is common for museums to sell prints and posters of conventional works of art, this has never been possible with interactive art because of the unique technology it often relies on.

    Kanazawa and co get around this with a simple approach. The technology that powers their installation is an iPhone 5c mounted behind the canvas with its camera peering through a pinhole. It uses conventional face recognition software to pick out the faces of anybody nearby and then sends the pictures to a projector. This beams the faces onto the canvas.

    Kanazawa and co have made all this available as an iPhone app costing 99c. So anybody can run a similar installation in their living room. The paper referenced below provides some technical pointers about how best to set it up.

    April 14, 2003 message from Seamus Fitzroy [englishjobmaze@mail.com

    Dear Bob,

    I would like to submit for your consideration an ESL/EFL job & info site for possible inclusion in the 'Program Search' (or other relevant) section of your informative area of the Trinity website.

    The English Job Maze (http://www.englishjobmaze.com) is an

    International ESL/EFL job & information site for ESL/EFL teachers and schools around the world. But it is also much more than 'just another' ESL/EFL job site. It contains a wealth of free TESL industy-related info for teachers, including one of the largest ELT bookstores on the Internet, plus 'Countries @ a Glance' - the most comprehensive TESL guide to pay, taxes, visas, travel, etc, in 50 of the world's most popular teaching destinations.

    I hope you find this site useful. Hundreds of ESL/EFL teachers, schools and university/college graduates around the world have told us they do.

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Warm regards

    Seamus Fitzroy

    From The Scout Report on January 18, 2002

    A+ Country Reports http://www.countryreports.org/ 

    A fantastic resource for students, teachers, tourists, and anyone else interested in the globe, A+ Country Reports offers a wealth of information on all of the countries of the world. Like the CIA's World Factbook (last mentioned in the September 28, 2001 _Scout Report_ ), A+ Country Reports presents up-to-date information on population, geography, economy, history, and politics. Aside from that, however, the site presents a lively array of extras that don't figure in the CIA's matter of fact dossiers, things such as audio clips of national anthems and links to current weather reports. As the site itself boasts, through a list of quotes from current reviews, A+ Country Reports is particularly appealing to teachers and younger students, and it's obvious why it's appealing, given its attention to the kinds of details kids demand -- bright graphics, large fonts, and Flash-automated features among them. For those interested in sharing what they have learned or already know, there is also a discussion area and links to sites for further study.


    FindTutorials http://www.findtutorials.com/

    From C-SPAN
    Booknotes (with audio and video) http://www.booknotes.org 

    Booknotes, 
    C-SPAN's signature author interview program, has served as a forum for books about history, politics and public affairs for a dozen years. C-SPAN's unedited, commercial-free format, allows for an in-depth discussion with an author distinct from other author interview programs.

    The format is simple: one author, one book, one hour. For a full hour every Sunday night, fifty-two weeks a year, an author discusses their recently-released work of non-fiction. Beyond the book's subject matter, authors are also queried about the writing process, about how and why they came to write their book and their own lives and influences. Authors may appear on Booknotes only once in their writing career.

    The host of the program since its inception is C-SPAN CEO Brian Lamb. With over 630 author interviews since 1989 consisting of heads of state, war correspondents, biographers, scholars, generals and peacemakers, Lamb's Booknotes provides a variety of perspectives for its viewers. Guests have included Colin Powell, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Neil Sheehan, Martin Gilbert, Jean Strouse, Betty Friedan, and Henry Louis Gates.

    Mr. Lamb is also the author of three collections of Booknotes interviews, the latest of which is Booknotes: Stories from American History.

    Writers and journalist have had this to say about the Booknotes program:

    In a USA Today article, Pulitzer Prize-winning author David Halberstam called the program "wonderful," adding it "connects serious writers in a highly-civilized way to serious readers out there."

    The Los Angeles Times called the program "unique," stating "Long before Oprah discovered reading and the mass market for books, Brian Lamb was serving up a special kind of journalism that lets writers talk - and talk and talk - with little or no interruption."

    C-SPAN, the political network of record, was created in 1979 by America's cable companies as a public service. C-SPAN is currently available in 82 million households, C-SPAN2 in 65 million households, and C-SPAN3 in nearly 4 million households nationwide. For more information about C-SPAN, visit our web site at c-span.org.

    This portal provides real world, practical and relevant copyright information for anyone navigating the net. Launched on May Day '95, the Copyright Website strives to lubricate the machinations of information delivery. As spice is to Dune, information is to the Web; the spice must flow. Or, if you prefer another metaphor, take the blue pill and I'll show you just how deep the rabbit hole goes...

    Drafting a Faculty Copyright Ownership Policy http://ts.mivu.org/default.asp?show=article&id=982 

    Many colleges and universities are either considering ways to revise their existing copyright policies or drafting new policies. A copyright policy encompasses both the use of copyrighted works owned by third parties and the ownership of works generated by faculty, staff and students within an institution. The purpose of an ownership policy should be to encourage research, scholarship and the dissemination of knowledge; thus, the ownership model the school adopts should further this purpose.


    I got up earlier than Bob Jensen so you get this email from me instead of the other Bob.

    The Web site below is very interesting on several levels.

    http://www.CampusTours.com/ 

    The site allows one to see a photo album of 800 college campuses.

    From time to time I have the opportunity of going to a campus that I have not visited before. This web site allows the chance to "see" the campus before going.

    It also shows what some schools are doing to "show off" their institution.

    The campus tours site also lists those schools that have web cams, campus maps, videos, and VR tours. Trinity was one of the first to have a VR tour.

    Give it a quick look if you like to see what the other guys are doing and look like.

    Projections of Education Statistics to 2011 --- http://nces.ed.gov/pubsearch/pubsinfor.asp?pubid=2001083 
    Total public and private elementary and secondary enrollment is projected to increase from 52.9 million in 1999 to 53.4 million in 2005. Then total enrollment is projected to decrease to 53.0 million by 2011, an overall increase of less than 1 percent from 1999 (table 1).

    Between 1999 and 2011, public elementary and secondary enrollment is projected to increase 8 percent in the West, while in the South it will increase 1 percent. In the Northeast and Midwest, enrollment is projected to decrease 4 and 3 percent, respectively, over the same period (table 5).

    Enrollment in degree-granting institutions is projected to increase from 14.8 million in 1999 to 17.7 million by 2011, an increase of 20 percent. A 16 percent increase is projected under the low alternative and a 23 percent increase is projected under the high alternative (table 10).

    High school graduates from public and private high schools are projected to increase from 2.8 million in 1998-99 to 3.1 million by 2010-11, an increase of 11 percent. This increase reflects the projected rise in the 18 year-old population (table 23).

    Between 1998-99 and 2010-11, the number of public high school graduates is projected to increase 20 percent in the West, while the South will increase 12 percent. The Northeast and the Midwest are projected to increase 11 and 2 percent, respectively, over the same period (table 24).

    The number of bachelor's degrees is expected to increase from 1,184,000 in 1997-98 to 1,392,000 by 2010-11, an increase of 18 percent (table 27).

    Under the middle alternative, a 34 percent increase in current expenditures for public elementary and secondary schools is projected for the period from 1998-99 to 2010-11. Under the low alternative, current expenditures are projected to increase by 29 percent; under the high alternative, current expenditures are projected to increase by 40 percent (table 33).

    Under the middle alternative, current expenditures per pupil in fall enrollment are forecast to increase 33 percent in constant dollars from 1998-99 to 2010-11 (table 33).

    The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS --- http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/ 
    Features

    IPEDS Web-Based Data Collection allows institutions to provide NCES with the required statistical data, replacing the paper survey forms that have been used in past years.

    IPEDS Peer Analysis System and Self-guided Tutorials enables a user to easily compare a LinchPin institution of the user’s choosing to a group of peer institutions, by generating reports using selected IPEDS variables of interest.

    IPEDS College Opportunities On-line (COOL) presents data on institution prices, financial aid, enrollment, and type of programs that are offered by the institution. IPEDS COOL is designed to help college students, future students, and their parents understand the differences between colleges and how much it costs to attend college.

     

    College Opportunities Online --- http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/cool/ 
    IPEDS College Opportunities On-Line is your direct link to over 9,000 colleges and universities in the United States. If you are thinking about a large university, a small liberal arts college, a specialized college, a community college, a career or technical college or a trade school, you can find them all here.

    College Opportunities On-Line is brought to you by the National Center for Education Statistics in the U.S. Department of Education. NCES was authorized by Congress in 1998 to help college students, future students, and their parents understand the differences between colleges and how much it costs to attend college.

    College Opportunities On-Line helps you find out about a specific college or set of colleges, if you have some in mind. You can name the colleges and obtain information about them.

    If you are not sure what colleges might be of interest, IPEDS COOL has the tools to help you search for a college. You can search for a college based on its location, program, or degree offerings either alone or in combination. The more criteria you specify, the smaller the number of colleges that will fit your criteria. Once you've found some colleges of interest, you can obtain important and understandable information on all of them.

    Once you have determined the colleges that meet your interests, we urge you to obtain more information about them by visiting their web sites, writing for more information, or visiting the schools of your choice.

    Warning: An institution's inclusion in IPEDS COOL does NOT imply approval of the institution or its programs by the U.S. Department of Education. Title IV eligible schools (those that participate in awarding Pell Grants and other federal financial aid) have recognized accreditation. This is important for acceptance of transfer credit or degree recognition.

    15. American Indian Environmental Office Tribal Portal http://www.epa.gov/indian/ 

    Based within the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the American Indian Environmental Office (AIEO) works to protect human health and the environment of federally recognized tribes by supporting implementation of federal environmental laws. The materials on the site are divided into different areas, including Consultation, Indian Policies, Maps & Data, and Tribal Calendar. Visitors will enjoy the Indian Policies area, as it contains detailed links to a range of reports and special documents dating back to 2002. The Maps & Data area is a real gem, as visitors can use spatial tools to locate and learn about the various environmental problem areas and cleanup sites that affect Native Americans who live on reservations around the United States. Finally, the Consultation area contains information on the outreach services provided by the EPA to these different communities. [KMG]
