About the Bootcamp: In 2015, The Center for Teaching & Learning of Athens Technical College staff (Dean:Mary Clare DiGiaComo, Portal Manager: Robin Fay, and Instructional Designer: Natasha Barreto) wrote a successful grant application for a New Media Consortium (NMC) /HP LIFE E-Learning mini-grant. This grant is facilitating the Fall 2015 CTL Professional Development Program Series: Making it Happen: Entrepreneurship & Education Bootcamp, for teaching faculty. Participants in this Bootcamp are using tablets to engage with content in the HP LIFE e-learning series for entrepreneurs, which focuses on entrepreneurship, business, and IT skills. Campers are participating in weekly meetings to discuss topics and brainstorm ideas such as how higher education can incorporate ideas from startups and maker culture. Weekly blog posts here encapsulate discussion and provide opportunities for reflection and collaboration. Participants will also complete a brief pre-camp survey and post-camp survey, a potential lesson plan and participate in weekly meetings. Potential outcomes of the program include incorporation of innovative teaching practices using entrepreneurial ideas in the 21st century classroom, establishing a community of practice focused on innovation and entrepreneurship, and a stronger network of technology startups and makerspaces within the Athens, Georgia region. Participating faculty will receive HP course certificates, ATC…

CTL’s goal is to increase student success through ongoing support and development of the faculty. In meeting those goals, CTL provides equipment and software in new teaching technologies, such as 3D. CTL supports the technologies that fall under the umbrella of 3D including digital 3D and development. For more information, please email us at ctl@athenstech.edu 3D covers a broad range of technologies from 3D printers that “print” real objects to digital 3D. Passive vs. Active passive (works similar to the old “red/blue lens” approach) active (computer signal in receptor in glasses) Types of 3D audience/view (typically uses passive glasses so no interaction) interactive (typically uses active glasses; participant can be interactive with content) kinetic (uses active glasses and a hands-free system gesture like Xbox) Interactive immersive 3D technology is what is called virtual reality. Virtual reality can involve using an avatar (Second Life) in an online experience or inserting the participant directly into the game or environment (many point of view – POV- games use this approach).   Holograms are digital images projected onto the real world via glasses or some other optical based device (e.g., Microsoft’s Holo Lens). 4D adds another level through providing tactile sensations (touch) or smell….
