Just prompted by what Simbeck has said.The point that everyone has their head down looking at a device just demonstrates that we have not developed the device fully yet. When we can look up at the presenter and see the digital information we desire overlaid on that live view we will be a little closer. I know it's already possible using some of the AR apps but it's not quite ready yet.

We can meet our learners on their devices. Autotweet from our presentations, create a collaborative mindmap, a WallWisher. Set them up in advance, it's nothing new 'promote & maintain the desire to learn'. Just using the available, free, tech to do it.
timbuckteeth Is their a 'Like' Button anywhere here?
CraigTaylor74 I have been lucky enough not to come up against the attitude you saw the other day, at least not since the early days when I was using the old Orange SPV, and I probably deserved it then. The majority of people seem interested in the capabilities of the device, I don't think I'm winning too many over though. Firstly I still haven't found a note taking app and stylus combination that feel completely natural, although one or two come very close. Secondly I think people worry about security; after all, paper based notebooks can be encrypted, protected by password and wiped remotely if necessary - hang on, that's not right is it!
If we are not ok with learners taking advantage of the very technology we are developing for and promoting in the workplace what is the chance of us succeeding? Who, once they have seen how great a tablet is for taking notes, or in my case mind mapping, during a meeting or session would go back to paper? I really want my learners to take out a device, I really look forward to everyone sharing their notes and scribbles after the event. I want to see them taking advantage of the 'wall wisher' I set up, I want to see and hear their blogs and podcasts. Until all these things are a matter of course in my organisation I am going to continue to struggle as a 'learning technologist' if the technology everyone wants to use was invented by László Bíró!
We looked at Thinking Worlds a few weeks ago. Lee was getting quite excited, I see the potential value but I don't see us getting the time freed up to develop something worthwhile. That said, we might be able to do something a little further downmarket using some 3d photography software linking to hotspots. I'll get the details tomorrow and share.

It's a tricky one. Where we can foresee likely issues it's better to build something into the system to fix them. In your example it'd be a route from contaminated to clean that cannot bypass the monitor & a door on a time latch to prevent haste.Otherwise it can be helped by a healthy learning culture, one of our units has long had a policy that staff use a centrally authored reference guide when completing online reports regardless of if they 'know' the procedure.
