The Top Ten Emerging Technologies of 2016

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For the past several years, the World Economic Forum (WEF) has published an annual list of the Top Ten Emerging Technologies that would likely have the greatest impact on the world in the years to come. The technologies on the list are not new.

Technological Unemployment: Not Just for the US

Andy McAfee

Even though hourly manufacturing labor costs in China are only 4% of those in the US, it’s still attractive for Chinese factories to replace people with technology over time. Take a look: China’s manufacturing output was over 70% greater in 2008 than it was in 1996.

A Growing Backlash Against the Relentless Advances in Technology?

PKM is not a technology

The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

New Technology The development of new technology continues to have an impact on learning. While on the one hand, new technology allows schools and instructors to offer learning in new ways, educators nonetheless continue to face limitations imposed by technology, and sometimes the lack of technology. The employment of data compression technologies has almost been superseded by fibre-optics technology such as lightpath management.

My Two Top 2008 Technologies

Let’s be honest — with the exception of our truly historic presidential election much of the noteworthy news of 2008 was bad to really bad.

2008 2009

Tony Karrer

It's always interesting to look back at the past year - 2008, think about what has changed for me during the year, and think about what that means for the next year - 2009. To do my review, I first looked at what I was writing about and what people were reading on my blog in 2008.

Pareto Power and Leveraged Growth

John Hagel

We are all familiar with the role of networks in scanning the environment for promising technologies and product ideas as well as evaluating product ideas.  The Pareto 80/20 rule can be used to drive significant cost restructuring, but it can also generate powerful leverage, enabling companies to deliver far more value to the market with far fewer resources.    In a time of increasing economic pressure, more companies are likely to discover the power of Pareto.

Forums vs. Social Networks?

Clark Quinn

It aims at a very broad audience that includes everyone from early adopters to technology laggards. We generally expect users to break into: 5% - Heavy Users - spend quite a bit of time and heavily participate 15% - Light Users - spend a little time, participate a little 80% - Fly-Bys - spend very little time, read bits and pieces It is likely that some of the Heavy Users will be technology laggards, but they will want to participate because of the content.

Learning Organization Dimensions

Clark Quinn

That’s valuable feedback, because I really mean it to be the learning organization culture and the technology infrastructure, the latter of which isn’t included traditionally in the learning organization work. After my post on Improving Organizational Learning Infrastructure, Daan Assen suggested that it was too limited in reference to the broader Learning Organization picture.

Challenges 2008

Tony Karrer

This was a great exercise and the fact that I had not considered my big challenges for 2008 made it harder to do my Conference Planning for ASTD TechKnowledge 2008. At any one point, I'm actively working with about 5 clients helping them define their direction around use of technology to support human performance. At the end of 2006, I spent some time thinking about 2007 and wrote a post challenges and predictions for 2007.

Innovation on the Edge

John Hagel

I’ve played on the edge throughout most of my professional career, whether it was doing deals in the Sultanate of Oman back in the 1970s, building a start-up around a new technology called the microprocessor in 1980, building a new Internet-focused practice for McKinsey in 1993 or spending more time in places like Bangalore, Shenzhen and Shanghai in the early part of this decade (my first visit to Shenzhen was actually in 1982 when I led a major manufacturing offshoring initiative there).

Best eLearning Blog 2008

Tony Karrer

I want to thank everyone who voted for and reads this blog - eLearning Technology. It was announced that we won for Best elearning / corporate education blog. I previously had some commentary on the edublog awards. I also lobbied for a few of my fellow bloggers who did not win. The bottom line is that none of us do this to win awards. It's nice to be recognized, but it's not going to change what we do. In a way, each of us votes every day for blogs. We spend time reading them.

Last Year's Predictions For 2008, Reviewed

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It's the end of 2008, and while most people are predicting what will happen in 2009 , I look back at those who predicted 2008. As for e-learning, 2008 was a year in which very little actually occurred(even in gaming, the headline reads Old Standby Back On Top ). Ultimately, time is one of our most valuable resources, and I am hopeful that in 2008 it will be easier to learn, as well as to create and locate high-quality learning content.

The 2008 IBM Global CEO Study

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

IBM just released the 2008 Global CEO Study. The Enterprise of the Future is the key theme of the 2008 CEO Study. Next comes technological changes, which about one third of CEOs identified as a major force they have to deal with. The newest finding uncovered by the 2008 study is the rise of corporate social responsibility. Technology, without a doubt, is indispensable.

New Technology Supporting Informal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Abstract We often talk about games, simulations and other events in learning, but these technologies support only episodic learning. Equally important are those technologies that provide a context for these learning episodes, an environment where students and interact and converse among themselves. Context Online learning today is beginning to be dominated by developments in games, simulations and related technologies. Implementing the Seven Principles: Technology as Lever.

Learning 2.0 Strategy

Clark Quinn

When I used to work with organizations on defining an eLearning Strategy, I always worked from a very broad view of needs across the organization and the implications that had on people, process and technology. Technology is Tactical not Strategic First, learning 2.0 technologies, but it is really more about a shift in responsibility, a shift in tactics, a shift in skills. It really is not about the technology.
