Interactive Technology Series

You are invited to attend this important series on Interactive Technology

Increasingly technology is changing many aspects of what we do and how we do it and the impact of these changes have enormous implications for both individuals and organistions. Consider the changing nature of TV, libraries, our dealings with government agencies, our daily transactions - all are increasingly affected by these changes.

Please join Terry Larose, at (e)-vision for this comprehensive and important series.

Interactive Technology Forum

Presented by Terry R. Larose, Head of Oktobor Interactive

This Definitive 5 week Series will provide a comprehensive overview on Interactivity - the past, the present and new directions.

Session 1: Technology's Interactive Future: Thursday 12th June 1-5pm

This introductory session will explore in broad terms how technology is evolving from a passive experience to one that immerses the user and involves him/her in the experience to a greater and greater extent. Starting with a history of human interaction with technology (caveman burns finger in fire) right up to the present day, we will explore how this ever increasing reliance on being able to adapt to our constantly evolving technological landscape has shaped the way we live.

Session 2 : TV or not TV? When computers and television become one : Thursday 19th June 1-5pm

Will your TV be replaced by a PC that can record, edit, sort, and play video on demand for you? Or will you instead end up with a TV with a hard drive inside? The lines between TV and PC are already blurred, and we have not even begun the process of integrating the two.

Session 3 : Interactivity and the Business World : Issues and Opportunities : Thursday 26th June 1-5pm

Just as the affordability of printed material made hand written business proposals and brochures no longer acceptable, new technology offers new directions for business people trying to grow.

Session 4 : The End of Books, or a Golden Age? : Thursday 3rd July 1-5pm

Most people in the workforce today were raised on a steady educational diet of textbooks, chalkboards, and pen-and-paper. This way of teaching is already dead, and technology has firmly implanted itself into the everyday lives of students around the world.

Session 5 :The final session will act as a wrap up for the series and address issues that arise in the previous sessions : Friday 11th July 1-5pm

Refreshments and networking opportunities at the end of each session.

Terry Larose is head of Oktobor Interactive, New Zealand's premier producer of Interactive TV, DVD, CD and web content. In this capacity, he manages Oktobor Interactive's business strategy, partnerships, and overall direction.
