From the iVan and iVanna Series of Dr. Katie Canty, Ed.D.
Let iVan or iVanna self-driving artificial intelligence vehicles assist you with urges for out of this world adventure in space. You can stargaze much closer to the stars up front and in person. Here’s how. The first adventures are iVanna’s.
The Beam Me Up iVanna Trip One cost $100,000 and requires no kind of special training. You get into a helium powered balloon space capsule and float 100,000 feet to the edge of the Earth, then float back down.
iVanna’s Slingshot Space Adventure Two cost $250,000 and requires weightlessness special training. You jet up from the Earth into outer space in a rocket powered engine, then safely jet back down to Earth.
Now let’s see what iVan’s space adventures look like.
- The iVan Mothership Space Adventure Three cost $750,000 and requires space ship detachment special training. You get to G-Force climb, experience mothership detachment, atmosphere launch, and then safely glide back down to Earth.
- iVan’s Space Station Voyage Adventure Four cost $70 million and requires special station living training. You get to skim the surface of moon, then go to live on the space station for a few weeks before returning to Earth.
Now, when do you want iVan or iVanna to book your vacation space trip?
Tired of begging and/or paying someone to type your school, work, or hobby report(s)? This camp is for you to prepare your own basic reports and papers in Word 2016 the right way, the first time!
Suggestion: If you are an absolute newbie, first, complete Dr. Canty’s Basic Computer Keyboarding/Typing 2 Week Training Boot Camp for Hunt & Peckers and Beginners.
This newest, very simple, word processing keyboarding/typing training camp focuses only on preparing a simple report or basic paper for school, work, fun, or a hobby.
Imagine a World in Which People Do Not Type: The Day My Computers iVan & iVanna Quit!
Imagine a world where there are no keyboarding/tying input devices. We call this the day my computer keyboards quit! If data entry computers quit, you might want to cover your ears. There is likely to be a lot going on like hollering, yelling, screeching, and maybe cussing, too. Imagine a conversation like this.
Child to iVana: Type the essay for school for me.
iVanna to Child: I am not programmed to type your school papers. My artificial intelligence does tell me to tell you to think and type for yourself, Child. I quit!
“OK, says, the Child. Go ahead and quit. I will ask iVan.”
iVan to the Child: I quit, too. But, I did tell your parents and teachers about your request before I quit. iVan and iVanna self-drive off to join other AI’s , artificial intelligence computers that think for themselves, on an international, unannounced holiday of technology down time.
Two recommendations for success, if the students are absolute newbies to using computers:
- Have a senior citizen student to teacher ratio of no more than 2 students per teacher, assistant, or computer coach.
- Require students to enroll in a short, pre-course device workshop. One of the most important, often overlooked details is to make sure that each student can see and comfortably read information on their device screen. Make sure that each student’s device can access the Internet from your class location. Help students to understand that teachers and coaches do not stop class in order to find device passwords, load required software, or to fix device hardware.
My personal preference is to teach a class of 8 to 10 newbie senior citizens with a couple of computer coach assistants on standalone computers or on bigger screen devices all from the same computer company.
- Should I take this course online?
It depends on:
- the 1st timers comfort level with using new technology
- proficiency level using up-to-date hardware and software
- learning style
- attention span
- access to face-to-face support as needed when needed
- online facilitator’s instructional delivery method(s)
