BCM325 Beta Presentation: Holographic Footages for the Digital Artefact?

In this video, I have included scenes of 3D holographic images I made to illustrate my imagined three-time scales development of educational holography. Prior to this presentation, I had collected feedback from a wide range of channels, including comments on my pitch, a survey, informal chats with friends and people at the MakerSpace and Unishop, as well as done a self-experiment to build my operational prototype. I would like to send my special thanks to all of the wonderful people who supported and helped me with the project.

Survey results (Response rate is low, but I have other feedback channels to rely on. A limitation is I don’t think I have gained any responses from students studying at regional campuses)

Other chat (I happened to have this group dialogue with my friends when they saw me working on the secondary sources for this project in the library. I took note after the chat as I realised their ideas help me envision my concept about holography better)

  1. Hi Trang,

    Your beta video shows in-depth research and analysis of the current climate of education. I agree that all forms of education need to become more engaging for students. Not only for the sake of education but to keep students wanting to engage and grow their minds. I love how clearly you have addressed the future in your video.

    While researching further on your topic I found an article that may interest you when discussing what the future may look like – https://theconversation.com/holographic-teachers-were-supposed-to-be-part-of-our-future-what-happened-108500
    The article speaks about how the turn of last century people were predicting that by now we would have the technology you are researching for your DA. I think this would be very useful for you to consider these points and critically comment on the factors to conclude whether or not they could still be considered roadblocks in the next 20 years of hologram technological advancements?

    I know that your DA is mainly focusing on higher education I do believe this example from 2017 in Canberra shows advancements within the field of educational holograms. Students at Canberra Grammar School experienced the unique learning applications of technology when it became the first school in Australia to test mixed reality in the classroom. So instead of reading about ancient Chinese architecture or looking at a picture of a 3,000-year-old house, students can walk inside the house and experience for themselves what it was like to live inside one.”

    A study on ‘Reimagining STEM Education and Training with e-REAL: 3D and Holographic Visualization, Immersive and Interactive Learning for an Effective Flipped Classroom.’ The research talks about what they know about learning from cognitive psychology are that people learn by practising, with feedback to tell them what they’re doing right and wrong and how to get better. https://eds-a-ebscohost-com.ezproxy.uow.edu.au/eds/detail/detail?vid=0&sid=eff8f4f2-a235-4c68-a90d-8ccedab10c78%40sessionmgr4007&bdata=JnNpdGU9ZWRzLWxpdmU%3d#AN=126124262&db=bth

    I’m excited to see your final DA and I hope my feedback and research is helpful for you!

  2. Hey Trang!
    What an interesting topic! 
    It’s clear that you’ve done some really thorough research, and you’ve explained your idea, the research and the history really well. 
    Once you’ve completed the project, are you also going to look at the negative side of this? I know for me personally, I lose interest and engage less with lectures when I’m watching at home, so is this a possible negative effect?
    I think it would also be a good idea to look at how holograms themselves will change over time. Is it possible that in 20 to 50 years we’ll see holograms that look identical to people, such as in Majorie Prime? I found these sources really helpful for looking into that https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/fe11/edeab352e15889e0865f44b2e600bdd6dc08.pdf
     and https://www.spiedigitallibrary.org/journals/Optical-Engineering/volume-53/issue-11/112310/Ultrarealistic-imaging-the-future-of-display-holography/10.1117/1.OE.53.11.112310.full?SSO=1
    Great work so far, and I look forward to seeing it all come together!

  3. Hi Trang,

    Your digital artefact of looking at the future relationship between holographic technology and education is a very engaging topic, and also very relatable to everyone at UOW currently viewing it via wordpress. Likewise, many forms of research were presented through your BETA, exemplifying your interest and knowledge of holographic technology.

    You’ve done a great job of addressing the multiple timeframes of where your DA effects future futures, not just relating to the short term future, but delving into how your DA affects the middle and long term future. The time period of the near future is hard to conceive, however you provided examples of where future education would change, such as” live tweeting, holographic lectures and learning material” within the next 5 to 10 years. 

    Similarly, you’ve already recognised problems of holographic technology in the next 20 to 30 years, such as the issue of cost. Holographic technology will be expensive and there will be a limitation of this advanced technology for the masses to consume.

    A great point you made about the long term future was how when holographic technology becomes available to the common public, it will be inevitable that it will lead to the decentralisation of educational industries, allowing lecturers and students to attend class via holographic participation. This could potentially lead to many negative outcomes; possibly another angle to look at this timeframe though.

    Overall, your DA seems to be on the right track, looking at relevant topics and asking important questions about the future of holographic technology in the educational sector. Heres a news story I found about holographic technology in the classroom https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74xKxD2o-H8
