Information sharing this month included watching two segments from ‘Download This Show’, an ABC program which reviews developments in Information Technology. The first introduced the new Apple Watch and asked "How intuitive is its interface?", the second debated the use of ‘biometrics’ ie. fingerprinting instead of passwords/codes when logging into modern computer technology. The video clips are available on the blog entry below if you would like to find out more.
With most of the ‘Tech Heads’ group interstate or overseas, the remainder of the session was spent on ‘Mentors’ and ‘Bloggers’ group activities. ‘Mentors’ focused on learning to use the iPads—lots of questioning, suggestions, problem solving and moments of joyful discovery were audible as they did so. ‘Bloggers‘ gathered around the W4 computer to discuss ‘work in progress’ on their blog, taking advantage of time together to share their blog’s concept; talk about the learning involved in developing their blog page and to pick up ideas from one another.
At our next session on November 11th, Terry Dillon will be discussing Smart TV’s.
