Marcus Ragus and Daniel Dacey were invited to Perth for the WA Training Forum (they were here from 14 to 17 May) to do a presentation on Smart Tags for Smart Learning. This meant Frances McLean and myself got to spend most of the week with Marcus and Daniel talking about mobile technology and m-learning. Shame poor Frances was not well all week and Daniel also got sick; but other than that it all went well.
As a result of their visit I managed to record some of their presentations and an interview; which I have now edited into three different podcasts so others can gain from what I learnt.
The podcasts are:
- Detailed explanation of the difference between barcode, RFID and NFC technologies. I have two versions of this podcasts – a longer (12.35 mins) audio version and a shorter (7.30 mins) video version.
- Part of Marcus’s Smart Tags for Smart Learning presentation – this is video podcast where I combine parts of Marcus’s presentation with small parts of my interview so that you can visualise how barcode, RFID and NFC technology can be used in education and training.
Just for laughs I have uploaded this picture Daniel took of Marcus explaining the technology to me. It was his revenge after me annoying him taking photos. BTW that is not a look of boredom – but a reflection of how tired I was ( the past few weeks have been very busy with minimal sleep).
