REAL Performance Support Requires True Blended Learning Five moments of need 1. when learning for the first time 2. when learning more 3. when remembering and/or applying whats been learned 4. when things go wrong, and 5. when things change.

  • 16. How much digital stuff are we producing? ■ If every image made and every word written from the earliest moments of civilization to the year 2003 were converted to digital information, the total would come to five exabytes. ■ An exabyte is one quintillion bytes, one billion gigabytes…a one with eighteen zeros following it ■ That means: 5,000,000,000,000,000,000 ■ From 2003 to 2010: we created five exabytes of digital information every two days ■ By 2013 we will be creating five exabytes every ten minutes ■ The total of 912 exabytes for 1020 is the equivalent of 18 times the amount of information contained in all the books ever written.
