Another Paradigm Shift for Mobiles

Another Paradigm Shift for Mobiles

Today, we hardly spend any time at all phoning on our mobile “phones.” Our portable devices have become internet terminals without our hardly noticing it. Soon, they will metamorphose again – and become our personal antennae, sensing devices to feed us very contextually sensitive information based on who, where, what, and how we are at any moment. Ray Gallon prepared this look at the near future for the TC Europe 2016 conference in Porto.

Assessment and Advice for “Erasmus+” Programmes

Assessment and Advice for  “Erasmus+” Programmes

We have provided external assessment to the Cita- Project (EU 2014-1-ES01-KA200-003382, funded by the “Erasmus+”), built because “It is especially important at this moment  for local associations to develop and modernize our organisations through international cooperation, sharing common interests, experiences and ways to make the most of our scarce resources.” Neus Lorenzo is an official certified assessor for the European “Erasmus+”  programme and provides training and advice to different European projects, for networking and organisational improvement: Lithuania (LAKMA), APABAL (from Mallorca) and IATEFL-H (Hungary).

Wicked Problems, Nemetics, and Content

Wicked Problems, Nemetics, and Content

Ray Gallon presented a talk at the SOAP 2015 conference, in Krakow, Poland, applying theories of Nemetics to technical communications. The problem of complex technical information, and threading our way through it, can be perceived as a “wicked” problem – one which is highly dependent on sensitive conditions, and which is nearly impossible to solve. Nemetics provides an effective approach, not for solving, but for managing this complexity.

Education and Technology in Macedonia

Education and Technology in Macedonia

The Transformation Society collaborated with Friends of Education in Macedonia, to help teachers reflect on their own practices (Neus Lorenzo) and think about future technological challenges (Ray Gallon). The 2016 EduConference focused on building an international space for sharing ideas and experiences on effective use of IT in Education, with experts from a wide range of fields.

eLearning, mLearning, and User Assistance

eLearning, mLearning, and User Assistance

In the slides from this presentation at TC World 2014, Ray Gallon explores the relationship between remote and mobile learning to traditional user assistance for software. Professional training has already moved, in great measure, from instructor-led classroom sessions to webinars. In a “mobile first” environment – always connected everywhere – mLearning is taking over. User Assistance is a specialised kind of learning. Should we be moving it out of the application and onto mobile devices? Everything will go mobile.​
