Dual band wifi

So should you use 5GHz or 2.4GHz wifi and what are they? The picture from the Asus site explains it well. 2.4GHz is the old standard which is used for roller doors, phones, the  now old wifi connections and gadgets. I now have dual band with my nbn connection. I have set my iPad to 5 GHz and my phone on 2.4GHz and I’d set a laptop to whichever one depending on what I was doing…choices! My desktop has an ethernet connection but if I were to run it on wifi I’d be choosing 5GHz because this is a very graphics capable  and dedicated machine. How-to-geek explains it in detail and in a good way so that you properly understand the reason for both wifi bandwidths and why there are times you should be running on ethernet connections. Ethernet is solid, stable and will not put your computer under unnecessary strain especially if you are running video, image and fast changing content. If you are installing connections, operating systems, downloading videos and software an ethernet connection is preferable for stability and ease of data downloads and  smooth connection establishment. There is no strain on anything.

Make the most of online tutorials

We live in a visual world. We have access to devices and the internet. Nobody needs to be stuck. We haven’t quite got to the stage where we are capitalising on the value of video tutorials . Some people are still text based and want text information. Most people have shifted to ingesting video information and it’s worth its weight in gold:

You can find out quickly how to do things
You can promote information to fill in learning gaps
You can highlight relevant information

Different age groups view technology differently at the moment. Older people would probably think it is not very sensible, secure or appropriate to be doing their banking with phones and tablets. It would seem too casual for them and not the way they have been brought up with the highly valued bank book, the important banking and financial meetings and the belief that financial dealings are a very serious business. Younger people would want the ease and convenience of device banking because they are time poor and have a different way of looking at it. Not everything should be done online because there is real value for all concerned to have genuine people contact with real conversations. Online videos , though, can smooth the way to getting people more comfortable with how they can do things differently. All businesses and organisations need their little video tutorials about how to make the most of their services or ideas. Video tutorials help people to know how to do things so they can participate. Trawling through FAQs can often leave people as baffled as they started unless they are well organised and presented. Even FAQs could have videos to help people navigate interfaces and thinking around content.

The how to create a website video by WordPress has had nearly a million views. It was well worth the making of the video and the comments attest to that. Backing up online content with video help is a good way to engage everyone as the aitsl site clearly demonstrates. Videos initiate a culture of participation and can shift thinking and practice. Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook all have video capability and so we can all share our thinking, ideas and knowledge in a very easy way to create those connected conversations which will move us all forward instead of dividing us. In truth, there is no generational gap. There is generational advantage which can be shared now across the internet. Every generation has its strengths and videos and images are an efficient way of making those connections.

All about Snapchat

There is nothing which replaces user experience when it comes to social media. Then there most definitely needs to be user exploration and reconnaissance. I master one social media platform at a time and it takes a good six months to get hang of it, understand its impact and implications and now how to negotiate the social media platform safely. I start slowly and build up my skills. You cannot know a social media platform from the outside. While I am not using one I look , listen and learn. You can hear about the problems, the advantages, the way people use these platforms. You can come to an understanding of what the pitfalls are and work out how you would address them. There is no privacy online. Just pretend privacy and so it is important to know how you will deal with that and manage it. The young world is very enthusiastic about Snapchat but it is becoming internet practice to get the young to pioneer applications of this sort and gradually more age groups are represented and the platform then becomes mainstream. The young will experiment and just be wildly enthusiastic about a new platform. The developers will get a run for their money too because young people can be very good at using a system in ways you had never even considered. Snapchat is part of our visual world and is instant visual messaging which theoretically has a limited time life. Maybe for the user. Snapchat is in the moment and can allow you to connect quickly with others in a very real way to share input. The sorts of input will vary I am sure. Until I am on there I can only guess and my guess will not in any way be able to quantify the value of Snapchat. The video gives you very clear explanations as to how set Snapchat up. I then have some other sites which will inform you and me as to the perceived value of Snapchat from those who use it:

Snapchat is well loved and well used. There are 8 billion video views daily and 9 000 snaps per second. That is pretty impressive connectivity in anyone’s book.

We are connected

connectedness

Image: data analysis assignment

Web 3.0 is underway and poised ready to take off. We are waiting for bandwidth, faster processors and co processors and plenty of RAM. As it stands , we can still all connect and we can analyse that data if we want to. The fact that we are is an indication that this will become a fundamental way of life. For the first time in history , millions of people can be connected and they are using their languages to facilitate communication. It means we can create dedicated groups across time and space to work on something, discuss something, develop something. It means we are no longer confined by walls and geographical boundaries. It also means more people can be included and become participants in something worthwhile. No one is physically limited if they have an internet connection  and a device they can use. Theoretically I could be sitting here now with say 10 -15 faces on my screen who are all hooked into a good quality video link and I could be running a classroom online. We could be talking and learning as we do in a real classroom. Australia is one of the countries which has pioneered effective distance learning but whether we are at the stage where we could actually run online video classes , I do not know. It would not suit everyone and it would not be for everyone but it would push the boundaries on any time anywhere learning. A classroom is not an online course. There are plenty of online courses we can have access to at any time so we can pursue indvidual and asynchronous learning. Running a real classroom online with synchronous learning would offer options for different sorts of learning. I could theoretically have my class made up of students from anywhere. True international engagement. It will come. This connectedness means peole are no longer necessarily tied to time and place for work. It will create all sorts of pressures and challenges with regard to work conditions, occ health and safety, other legal issues and responsibilities. As it stands people gather online for conferences, webinars, courses, discussions, games, causes and special interests. In time that will permeate how we all live because we are connected. It means you can get help and ideas from anyone , anywhere and that you can share and discuss ideas whenever you want with a global audience. Connectivitiy means we are grouping according to our interests at the time but it also means our skills and capabilities can be utilised and fostered more broadly.
