What a weekend. I flew in and back from Kansas for a family event. I’m a little behind on my Monday must-reads, but found some good stuff to share.
This week, it’s back-to-school week at my house. The beginning of the academic year is a milestone for all of us, whether or not we have kids. It feels like the fresh start we remember as “the first day of school.”
I believe we can all learn how to deliver better products, experiences and opportunities by learning about learning. And these days, there is lots to learn!
Khan Academy is amazing. Check out how this online resource for everything academic is integrating in new and powerful ways.
My friend Angela Maiers delivers a powerful lesson in why you matter, I matter, we all matter. Well worth the watch. Few people believe in the power of people like Angela. She is inspiring all by herself.
There is a ton of information about how we are internalizing information differently in this digital age. We skim, we peruse, but fewer and fewer of us actually read.
“The questions that our society must ask revolve around whether the time-consuming demands of the deep-reading processes will be lost in a culture whose principal mediums advantage speed, multitasking, and processing the next and the next piece of information.”
How does how we learn and internalize information affect what information we present? How do changes in learning impact how we communicate with one another?
There’s no easy answer here. This is just the tip of the iceberg. What do you think?
