A couple notes of housekeeping before we begin:


There is the opportunity for the same question to be asked multiple times or multiple ways. This is perfectly acceptable. The only thing we ask is that there is only one post per user; however, multiple questions can be in that post.

Finally, make sure you are using the http://www.connect2edmonton.ca/forum/images/c2ebuttons/reply.gif button and not the http://www.connect2edmonton.ca/forum/images/c2ebuttons/report.gif button to enter your questions. The Report Post button is to report issues and concerns. Using this will result in your question not being immediately displayed, and a moderator having to copy and paste your suggestion into the Ask Sam question thread.

So, with that, I sincerely thank Dr. Shaw for his participation, and I especially thank you for entering Connect2Edmonton and taking part in this event.

Have fun!
Connect2Edmonton Administration.

Dr Shaw,

Normally the Admin does not to ask questions, but this one is more focused on social media and new world communications. I know this is a soft spot for you.

1. Communities like C2E. Where do you see the bulletin board medium going in the future?

2. Social Media. Do you have an opinion on where this type of interaction will go,and more specifically, how it will work in an educational setting?

3. Gary Lamphier recently wrote a column on the lack of innovation and adoption of new tools in recent memory. http://www.edmontonjournal.com/Business/Oversold+innovation+deliver/1684436/story.html In it, he laments how many of today's "innovations" are really 70's era innovations, how many new products have yet to reach prime time in spite of decades of research and development, and how newer technologies like advanced video conferencing and other collaboration tools have not gained acceptance in the business world. I would be very curious to see how you think on this subject, as well as how these newer technologies could improve NAIT's overall reach and program offerings?


On another note, C2E's Administration is extremely grateful for your participation on this forum.
