Seven black swans for education in 2012 | Open Flexible and E-Learning Knowledge Base | Scoop.it

Dave: I want to talk about Black Swans. A black swan is a suprise event that changes the whole nature of a conversation. They are events that, in hindsight, EVERYONE wants to say they saw coming, but no one (or few people) predicted ahead of time. They are usually dramatic events, though it’s not the level of the drama that’s important, but rather the impact that it has.

Howard Rheingold on how the five web literacies are becoming essential survival skills | Open Flexible and E-Learning Knowledge Base | Scoop.it

Howard Rheingold isn’t too concerned about whether Google is making us stupid or if Facebook is making us lonely. Those kind of criticisms, Rheingold says, miscalculate the ability humans have to change their behavior, particularly when it comes to how we use social media and the Internet more broadly.
