#CTCX #58: The Leap Show – The #EdTech Horizon Report 2012

Happy Leap Day!

Since this only happens every 4 years, the Campus Tech Connection (#CTCX) will be hosting a podcast to TODAY at 12 pm CST to talk about leaping forward with technology in higher education. We were joined by@EricStoller   on the podcast & Google + Hangout to discuss the 2012 Horizon Report and how it impacts Student Affairs and Technology (#SAtech). Here’s the recorded podcast if you missed it.

The Horizon Project has been a collaborative effort between the New Media Consortium (NMC) Emerging Technologies Initiative and EDUCAUSE  to help map out the emerging technologies for teaching, learning, research, creative inquiry, and information management.  The Horizon Report was first launched in 2002 to help educators and thought leaders share  strategies, research and analysis around how technologies can effectively support learning.

F8: Reviewing the Facebook Changes with #CTCX

Based on the status updates on Facebook, the Campus Tech Connection (#CTCX) podcasting crew thought that it would be real & relevant time to discuss the changes to Facebook.  How will one of the biggest social networks impact our learners? Or will it?

Last week’s F8 shared changes ahead to one of the biggest social networks: https://f8.facebook.com/ 

Mashable did a great job to highlight some of these new features on Facebook’s Latest Changes: A Hands-On Look [PICS]. Some of these updates will really impact how Student Affairs and Higher Ed professionals use this social network for program development, communication plans,  and campus social media strategy. Was the best part of the F8 when Andy Samberg impersonates of Mark Zuckerberg? You decide:
