    ¨ Gamification or gamified learning is another important development. Kids are growing up on gaming systems and it is what they are used to. Learning has to involve entertainment anymore, you lose kids with the absence of technology in the learning environment. Providing interactive games and a “badge” type of reward system keeps them engaged and its fun.
    I would add that gamification is an interesting trend that should be on the list. Jane McGonigal is a name we should know. joeyp Jun 5, 2016

    to study. [[user:michael.macklin|1465145611]Communities of LearningIt would seem that education has remained largely unchanged over the years. Classrooms have evolved to include more technology, or even become virtual; however, the function of education has remained largely formal and requires a content expert (faculty, teacher, Extension professional) decimating credible information to those interested or required to access the information. With developments in technology I would challenge Extension and LGU's to think about re-framing the conversation of education to focus on informal communities of learning leading to a multitude of pathways towards learner wants and needs. How can we use technology to provide learning in every day activities? How can reading a recipe for tonight's dinner lead to a better understanding of nutrition and food safety? How can setting up your family wi-fi lead to an exploration of computer networks and security? How can a family trip to the local sporting goods store provide STEM learning while parents are shopping? Learning opportunities surround us, how can we structure ways to capitalize on this learning through technology? michael.macklin Jun 5, 2016

    I agree with the statement above. As our "things" become more and more connected, they will increasingly be a part of our clients' quality of life, and therefore of interest to us as Extension educators. brittany.coop May 27, 2016
    This is kind of in the same category as my biohacking addition below...IoT is partly about new technologies, but I believe it's more about what we are doing (or can do) with technologies that are already available, and how it will impact our work (with individuals, families, and the fabric of society) in very profound ways. I think it absolutely needs to have a presence in these discussions. Is RQ3 the best place for this topic or does it also belong in RQ2? Perhaps we need an additional category? andersonb Jun 5, 2016 [Editor's Note: Great points! I have updated the existing RQ1 topic "Networked Objects" to include Internet of Things, and am placing these comments there.]
    ...
    Another technology that should be on the list is 360 degree video. Cameras are improving. A quick example that our state is consider is having students take 360 video and Extension can use it to help recruit to our land grant university.joeyp Jun 5, 2016 [Editor's Note: Combining with existing RQ1 topic 3D Video]

    Growth of Biohacking
    (Bradd) andersonb Jun 4, 2016(I'm honestly not sure where this topic goes. Please feel free to move it to RQ3, but I think it merits a place in our discussions. It has overlaps with wearable technology and IoT, and innovations like OpenBCI (http://eandt.theiet.org/magazine/2015/05/brain-computer-interfaces.cfm). However, it differs from these other existing topics in that it's development is increasingly community-based (vs. things like wearables, whose development is influenced by ISV's), non-sanctioned by society (people bypass the medical professionals, who do not get involved with this), and in line with much of what we know about our next generation of clients (Generation Z, whose behaviors are influenced by coming of age in a world of invisible tech and constant war, with the sum total of human knowledge at their fingertips).)

    ...
    While there are many different versions of Steve Blank and Alex Osterwalder's approach to a lean startup or business model canvas (one included here:
    http://3daystartup.org/lean/), I think Cooperative Extension can use this canvas approach to adapt to this culture of change and innovation. By looking at their individual communities and viewing community members as their "customers" and then identifying the "key problems" in the community, they can then modify their educational opportunities and create the value proposition for their community to ensure Extension remains a relevant and trusted source of information. This can be a short term change in behavior that is adopted for the long term.amy.dronberger Jun 1, 2016 Stan Jun 2, 2016 We have used the business model canvas as a tool to identify opportunities for collaboration between Extension and the Division of Continuing Education - a great tool! michael.macklin Jun 5, 2016

    Growing Focus on Measuring Learning
    The growing focus on measuring learning describes a renewed interest in assessment and the wide variety of methods and tools that educators use to evaluate, measure, and document the academic readiness, learning progress, skill acquisition, or educational needs of students. As societal and economic factors redefine what skills are necessary in today’s workforce, educational institutions must rethink how to define, measure, and demonstrate mastery of subjects, skills, and competencies. The proliferation of data mining software and developments within online learning, mobile learning, and learning management systems are coalescing toward learning environments that leverage analytics and visualization software to portray learning data in a multidimensional and portable manner. In online and blended courses, data can reveal how student actions contribute to progress and learning gains.

    Apps are popular ... however, I have seen several apps developed by Extension fade away from lack of marketing. Also, it is very expensive to develop an app and then to pay yearly for it to be made available. It is not a situation of "build it and they will come." I think these issues need to be addressed. ahenneman May 8, 2016
    I think using phones and tablets for learning and receiving communication is something that we need to to continuously address long term. This is important in sectors from Agriculture to health and nutrition. I've heard it many times from people that work in our health and nutrition institute that many of their low-income clients may not have continuous access to Internet - but they do have a smart phone. heyboerg [Editor's Note: Added here from RQ3.]
