Technology changes Everything

Jane Hart

In probably the most powerful indictment of current e-learning practices that I have ever read, Ethan Edwards asks Why Do We Continue to Perpetuate and Promote Ineffective E-Learning?

Technology and change.

Euen Semple

We are experiencing a seismic shift in how we see the world that is primarily social and cultural rather than simply technological. Sure the technology is helping, but it is meeting a need more often than it is creating it. We had to be ready for what the technology could do for us. I love technology if it is well designed, fun to use, and makes us more effective and life better. Technology as an end in itself really bores me.

Technology or preparation?

Clark Quinn

In listening to a recent presentation on the trends affecting the workplace and HR, there was mention about how organizations were using more cognitive technology, AI, etc. and this was changing jobs. But one of the things I wondered was whether all the new, smart technology really would help as much as was intended or needed. To put it another way, would we get better returns applying what’s known about how we think, work, and learn than bringing in technology?
