Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, January 26, 2013 10:50 PM

My first reaction on reading the list of groups involved was negative. The University of Pheonix has a dog in this fight. They will want digital technologies to at the forefront. That is OK, but we need a balanced view of this emerging world and we need to question some of the views presented. We are not on the cusp of a relationship between humans and their digital tools. We have passed this cusp and each day we are in that emergent world. That kind of comment oversimplies a complex reality full of uncertainty.

Recherche très pertinente qui apporte un vent de fraîcheur.  On n'y parle pas des emplois du futur, mais plutôt des compétences ou habiletés requises

Martijn Spek's curator insight, April 24, 2013 12:26 PM

Interessant rapport waarbij 'Change' in organisaties en bij mensen een zeer nadrukkelijke rol speelt. De tekenenen zien we nu al bij organisaties ontstaan. Het onderzoek is welliswaar primair gericht op Amerika, maar door de verdere globalisering en internationalisering interessant voor een ieder die met mensen werkt of gaat werken!

Hyper-connectivity and the Future of Education

Hyper-connectivity and the Future of Education | Ed Tech for Admin | Scoop.it

"What is Hyper-Connectivity? Friedman explains hyper-connectivity by telling a story about a piece he wrote for The New York Times. The Times story featured a review of a low-cost, Indian-made iPad-type device. He posted his column at 8pm, ET on a Sunday and had a response from India containing the results of actual tests on the device within hours of his article going live. Prior to the advent of Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ and other instantaneous communication platforms, it could have taken months for the inventors in India to hear about his review and respond to it."
