As President Barack Obama preps for his second term in office, we’re look out for what technology trends will matter most for government agencies and video technology has made the list.
Over the next four years we expect to see collaborative technologies, like Cisco TelePresence, transform the federal workplace. As businesses continue to adopt video technology and social platforms as a way to encourage efficiency and collaboration, the public sector will follow suit.
For more federal IT trends that we think will matter most during Obama’s second term, take a look at our very own Kerry Best’s post “With Second Term Ahead – What Tech Initiatives Matter Most for Government Agencies in 2013”.

Collaborative learning was on display this week at Educause 2012 in Denver. As colleges and universities are embracing technology to enable more dynamic teaching and learning, inside and outside of the classroom, it is clear that the “stale, passive lecture model” is transforming to a collaborative model of instruction.
A just published eCampus News special report on collaborative learning details how universities such as Duke, San Jose State University, Case Western, and West Texas A&M are embracing video, flipped learning and social collaboration platforms, like Cisco’s recently announced WebEx Social for Higher Education, to help faculty and students interact “in much richer ways’.

I recently wrote about “Collaborating with the New Generation” after being enlightened by a panel discussion with a group of Millennials. In the theme of looking forward and new generations, Forrester Consulting completed an in-depth online survey about the next-generation workspace with 325 senior-level IT decision makers in the United States, Europe, and China.
Not surprisingly, the workspace is evolving in much the same ways employee habits are.
