Tech Challenges: Surfing and Diving Deep

This series created interactions on several levels about the same subject. Each interaction involved a web site “summary,” a blog post “surf” of the subject, and a deep dive that involved a survey and an interactive webinar that included results of the survey. For each event, all links are posted below, except the surveys, which are now obsolete. To access the full webinar recordings, you need a free account.

Internet of Things – Luxury for the Rich or Sustainable Equity for All?

 Digital Reality – Escape to a Virtual World or Explore an Augmented Culture?

 Human Bionics – More Freedom or Electronic Slavery?

 Digital Learning – Individual Adaptive Construction or Connected Social Interaction?
