So, at the recent AECT 2017 conference, I participated in three ways that are worth noting. I had the honor of participating in two sessions based upon writings I’d contributed, and one based upon my own cogitations. I thought I’d share the thinking.

    [Technology] friday’s urban finds
    In a business environment marked by information technology, global competition, and fast-paced change, weblike networks are emerging not only among businesses forming strategic partnerships, but also among environmental, human-rights, and other activist groups — even among government agencies seeking to short-circuit the bureaucracy and get something done. Every fortnight I curate some of the observations and insights that were shared on social media. I call these Friday’s Finds.

    [Technology] Innovative Work Spaces
    Innovation is about culture, practices, beliefs, and technology. I recently read that Apple’s new office plan is receiving bad press. This surprises me, given that Apple usually has their handle on the latest in ideas. Yet, upon investigation, it’s clear that they appear to not be particularly innovative in their approach to work spaces. Here’s why. The report I saw says that Apple is intending to use an open office plan.

    [Technology] The Essential Digital Strategies
    The reality today is that despite seemingly endless advances and a steady river of emerging technologies , many of the key insights, strategies, and lessons in the digital age have still yet to be discovered. Most of us are coming to terms with and beginning to understand what digital can do, both for positive outcomes and otherwise (as all technology is a two-edge sword.). The growth of corporate productivity as a direct result of technology automation is a well known story.

    [Technology] L&D Tuneup
    Even staid and secure organizations are facing the consequences of increasing rates of change and new technology innovations. In my youth, owing to my father’s tutelage and my desire for wheels, I learned how to work on cars. While not the master he was, I could rebuild a carburetor, gap points and sparkplugs, as well as adjust the timing. In short, I could do a tuneup on the car. And I think that’s what Learning & Development (L&D) needs, a tuneup.

Ostensibly about Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR), it ended up being much more about VR.

    Is it about new technology, or is it about how we work with people? We’re seeing amazing new technologies: collaboration platforms, analytics, and deep learning. It’s very clear technology is changing the way we work. Plus we have technology-augmented design and prototyping tools that are shortening the time to develop and test ideas. If we use the new technologies in old ways, we’ll get incremental improvements. social strategy technology

Technology WorkIs the automation of what has traditionally been human work inevitable?
