The future of higher education and other imponderables by George Siemens

The future of higher education and other imponderables by George Siemens | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

Educators are not driving the change bus. Leadership in traditional universities has been grossly negligent in preparing the academy for the economic and technological reality it now faces. This failure is apparent in interactions I’ve had with several universities over the past several months.

Daniel Kahneman on the Trap of 'Thinking That We Know'

Daniel Kahneman on the Trap of 'Thinking That We Know' | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

A Nobelist in economics, a psychologist, describes the potent filters shaping how we perceive information.The talk is extraordinary for the clarity (and humor) with which he repeatedly illustrates the powerful ways in which the mind filters and shapes what we call information. .

Please carve out the time to watch his slide-free, but image-rich, talk. It’s a shorthand route to some of the insights described in Kahneman’s remarkable book, “Thinking, Fast and Slow” (I’m a third of the way through).
