Losing our collective minds?

Clark Quinn

So, after that mess on Twitter, I next see on LinkedIn a recognized personage who proceeds to claim that learning styles are legit. And, the basis for this claim is fundamentally wrong. So I’m beginning to fear that we’re losing our collective minds! Let me be clear about the claim, the problem, and a healthy approach. The claim started like this: I know there is a huge camp of folks who say no one has learning styles and they provide all types of links of others who concur.

Collective mind losing redux

Clark Quinn

I reported about a conversation on LinkedIn badly defending learning styles. And, the subsequent post came out. Sad to say, it doesn’t do anything better, and instead is yet another bad example of reasoning. It’s a ‘collective mind losing’ redux!

The Future of Now

There is latency to everything. Stub your toe and a second or two passes before the pain kicks in. The crack of a bat on a playing field takes half a second before it reaches the ears of the watching crowd. The sunlight we see on Earth is eight minutes old.
