Thought Provoking Videos and Snippet Learning

A friend of mine sent me a link to a few thought provoking videos. (Thanks Jackie at Recruit My Friends. )

The YouTube videos talk about the changes that are happening in our world and the state of our educational system. They talk about learning.

I'm a big believer in change. I believe change is opportunity and when I can't find change I try to create some. One thing I like about change is it actually helps smaller companies and entrepreneurs gain their place in new world order.

I am definitely a constant learner. My chosen way to learn is mostly by reading but I am certainly open to learning in any way I can. I love audio books because they suit my sense of time management.

I'm also a believer in Microlearning or Snippet Learning (that's learning in short snips), or perhaps I should call it A.D.D learning.

Hope you enjoy the videos.


I also talk about change in my Are You Galvanized or Paralyzed article.

Hello Jim,

Thanks for sharing these YouTube links (Did you know?). Very scary but highly thought-provoking stuff.

Can't even begin to enumerate all those thoughts, which flood my mind, having watched these presentations.

One things appears clear: I can't think of many positive aspects of this exponential technological-information explosion.

This Y-generation, who reads 8 books a year (probably less than you read in a month), who spend most of their waking (and sleeping) hours on the computer, yet generate most of the "content" on the ineternet, while multitasking? Can you imagine the depth of that content?

We seem to be speeding exponentially towards a very undesirable future.

Am I a pessimist? I sure hope so.
