Remote Labs: paradigm shift? or just new medium?

2010.12.04
Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

So dbl was suggesting that remote labs represented a paradigm shift.  I had myself realized that using a remote lab for lab work did not necessarily have to mimic the proximate experience but i had not thought of things like digital overlays which David used as example as new paradigm.  My thinking on paradigm, however, is that it replaces old paradigm.  Heliocentric replaces earth centric.  Remote labs do NOT replace proximate labs.  They augment/supplement.  A new medium like tv new medium from radio.  Radio has not been replaced.  So remote lab is new medium, not new paradigm.  But new medium is significant.

There are though there are those who suggest this is what remote labs should strive to do.  I am recalling story of flutist Paul Horn who at one  point set up shop in the Taj Majhal.  Story i recall is that Paul Horn spent many many hours with his flute trying to digitize the sound and have the digital output sound like a . . . . flute.  At first, i thought how odd to invest such effort into producing a sound he could already make.  Since then i have an appreciation for what he was trying to do – which was permit anyone to output sound of a flute.  Reason i thinking about this in relation to remote lab replicating proximate lab experience is that it does seem reasonable to ask that we can preserve fidelity in the new medium.  Also reminds me of Picasso winning all Europe painting contest as a teen.  He said – i can do what you can do – now what else can be done.

Paul Horn was trying to replicate a present output (acoustic flute) into a new medium (midi sound).  Picasso took extant medium and extended could be done with it.   I see both aspects with remote labs.  Times when desirable to replicate with fidelity experience of proximate lab.  Remote labs is a new medium, however, and so there are other possibilities.  I am mixing my metaphors – as for Picasso – remote labs are in the medium of teaching – and so remote labs extends what can be done with teaching.
