Learn to Adapt Links for December 15th through December 17th

  • Set in Our Ways: Why Change Is So Hard: Scientific American – A great article from Scientific American on the biology/psychology of why people are naturally resistant to change. Interestingly, it claims people are more tolerant of change during their 20s and then again after 60.
  • Pew Internet: Future of the Internet – Pew Internet research releases the results of its survey on the future of the Internet. Much as expected, with the exception of one finding that surprised me: "The transparency of people and organizations will increase, but that will not necessarily yield more personal integrity, social tolerance, or forgiveness." I think we may see more tolerance overall as everyone moves to "wearing a transparent kimono."

Learn to Adapt Links for December 2nd through December 3rd

  • The Partnership for 21st Century Skills – Home – For the K-12 set: A wonderful site advocating the improvement of our education system to include 21st-century skills. From the site: "The Partnership for 21st Century Skills has developed a unified, collective vision for 21st century learning that can be used to strengthen American education." They hit the nail on the head by stressing Creativity and Innovation Skills; Critical Thinking and Problem Solving Skills, and Communication and Collaboration Skills.
  • Moving towards the 2.0 “movie-going” experience – Ian Da Silva poses a thoughtful question about the future of movie distribution. This parallels many of the "converged" purchase models that I have discussed with my media clients. It will be interesting to see how long it is before you purchase your ticket at a theater and are given the option to pay an extra fee to download the video when it is released online…

Learn to Adapt Links for September 3rd

  • Web 2.0 Corporate Access : eLearning Technology – Steve Karrer and the eLearningGuild compile some statistics about corporate worker access to Web 2.0 applications. Not sure the scope validity of the study but it is in line with what we are seeing at Web 2.0 University
  • Six Degrees of Separation Is Now Three – More interesting data as we move from the "information age" to the "connected age". From the post:
    "According to the study, the average person is now connected by just three degrees within a shared “interest” or social group instead of six. In fact, it found that people are usually a part of three main networks: family, friendship, and work."

Learn to Adapt bookmarks for April 9th through April 13th

These are my links for April 9th through April 13th:

  • 10 Most Disruptive Technologies – eWeek pulls together Gartner's list of 10 most disruptive technologies through 2012. The annoying slideshow format asisde, it reveals technologies that will greatly impact the way we work, learn and live over the next five years.
  • I Saw The Future Of Social Networking The Other Day – Another peek into the future that sees the Web (as most people predict, a mobile Web) as ancillary memory for us. As you read through Michael's blog, think about the impact this will have on learning and collaboration.
