Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, February 26, 7:49 PM

A new mindset is needed in regards to learning.  No longer is one able to "finish" school - in the sense that school should be about learning. The out-dated notion of learning taking place in "school" needs to change. Learning can no longer be contained by a "place" or a "time" but instead needs to be set free - like a bird from a cage - in order for learners to be freed from the historic view of learning taking place only in schools. Schools are still places where learning can take place but they need to be part of the learners learning continuum where school is only a part.

Twitter CEO: You Don’t Have to Tweet to Use Twitter

Twitter CEO: You Don’t Have to Tweet to Use Twitter | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Twitter only added 4 million users in the fourth quarter of 2014, but Twitter chief exec Dick Costolo isn’t worried about the platform's long-term appeal.

 

One of the most interesting tidbits in the interview is Costolo’s stance on what he says to people he meets who don’t use Twitter. Usually their position is that they don’t have anything to tweet. Costolo’s answer: that’s fine – you don’t have to tweet to use Twitter.

 

I meet people who say, “Oh, I don’t tweet.” I think there’s still a misconception that the reason they’d sign up is to tweet. When I meet them, I tell them, “No, you don’t have to.”
