A nice and very important trends analysis.

I'm not sure how to react to this YouTube clip. It is worth watching and reflecting. Perhaps all I can do is be more careful, read user agreements, not use 'free' services where my privacy and data are traded and influence others to do the same.

This really gives you something to think about!

Security: It’s Us vs. Them – Or is It? - The State of Security

Security: It’s Us vs. Them – Or is It? - The State of Security | Transformational Teaching, Thinking, and Technology | Scoop.it

Security threats come at us from all sides these days, and it’s a constant battle of “us vs. them” to find and catch the bad guys before you end up in the news and people get fired or resign. Organized cyber-criminals and nation state cyber-terrorists strike deep and lingering fear in us all for the extent of the damage they can cause with one breach.

The Psychology of Getting Unstuck: How to Overcome the “OK Plateau” of Performance & Personal Growth

The Psychology of Getting Unstuck: How to Overcome the “OK Plateau” of Performance & Personal Growth | Transformational Teaching, Thinking, and Technology | Scoop.it
Something experts in all fields tend to do when they’re practicing is to operate outside of their comfort zone and study themselves failing. The best figure skaters in the world spend more of their practice time practicing jumps that they don’t land than lesser figure skaters do. The same is true of musicians. When most musicians sit down to practice, they play the parts of pieces that they’re good at. Of course they do: it’s fun to succeed. But expert musicians tend to focus on the parts that are hard, the parts they haven’t yet mastered. The way to get better at a skill is to force yourself to practice just beyond your limits.

This article falls right in line with our methodology for our program.  Revision! Revision! Revision!  which in essence is practice! practice! practice!  

Miguel Herrera E.'s curator insight, October 21, 2014 10:55 AM

El secreto es practicar hasta superar los propios limites, auto impuestos  muy frecuentemente.

Sounds like good advice.  Effective tutors always push learners.
