    • The Thumb People
      • “Young girls in high school can now move their thumbs faster than they can type on a PC.”
        • Tom Friedman: The World is Flat
      • Beneath a tree, a student:
        • manipulates an Excel spreadsheet,
        • texts comments to classmates using her phone,
        • asks the professor questions via instant messaging (IM)
        • listens to her iPod
        • The campus is her classroom.
        • The classroom is her campus.
        • Are we ready for this student?
    • “ Over the last decade the biggest employment gains came in occupations that rely on people skills and emotional intelligence and among jobs that require imagination and creativity . … Trying to preserve existing jobs will prove futile—trade and technology will transform the economy whether we like it or not. Americans will be better off if they strive to move up the hierarchy of human talents. That’s where our future lies .” —Michael Cox, Richard Alm and Nigel Holmes/“Where the Jobs Are”/NYT/05.13.2004 http://www.tompeters.com/freestuff/index.php
    • “ It is not the s trongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent , but the one most responsive to change.” —Charles Darwin http://www.tompeters.com/freestuff/index.php
    • “ People who succeed are those who are the best at ‘Plan B’.” — The New Scientist/09.05 http://www.tompeters.com/freestuff/index.php
    • “ How we feel about the evolving future tells us who we are as individuals and as a civilization: Do we search for stasis—a regulated, engineered world? Or do we embrace dynamism—a world of constant creation, discovery and competition? Do we value stability and control? Or evolution and learning? Do we think that progress requires a central blueprint? Or do we see it as a decentralized, evolutionary process? Do we see mistakes as permanent disasters? Or the correctable byproducts of experimentation? Do we crave predictability? Or relish surprise? These two poles, stasis and dynamism, increasingly define our political, intellectual and cultural landscape.” — Virginia Postrel, The Future and Its Enemies http://www.tompeters.com/freestuff/index.php

    • “ If there is nothing very special about your work, no matter how hard you apply yourself you won’t get noticed, and that increasingly means you won’t get paid much either.” Michael Goldhaber, Wired http://www.tompeters.com/freestuff/index.php

    • Our Students In A Flat World First “Strategic Objective” : CHANGE THEMSELVES! (in a measurable way) http://www.tompeters.com/freestuff/index.php
    • Rule #1: When the world goes flat—and you are feeling flattened—reach for a shovel and dig inside yourself. Don’t try to build walls. Rule #2: And the small shall act big. … One way small companies flourish in the flat world is by learning to act really big. And the key to being small and acting big is being quick to take advantage of all the new tools for collaboration to reach farther, faster, wider, and deeper. Rule #3: And the big shall act small. … One way that big companies learn to flourish in the flat world is by learning how to act really small by enabling their customers to act really big. Rule #4: The best companies are the best collaborators. In the flat world, more and more business will be done through collaborations within and between companies, for a very simple reason: The next layers of value creation—whether in technology, marketing, biomedicine, or manufacturing—are becoming so complex that no single firm or department is going to be able to master them alone. Rule #5: In a flat world, the best companies stay healthy by getting regular chest X-rays and then selling the results to their clients. Rule #6: The best companies outsource to win, not to shrink. They outsource to innovate faster and more cheaply in order to grow larger, gain market share and hire more and different specialists—not to save money by firing more people. Rule #7: Outsourcing isn’t just for Benedict Arnolds. It’s also for idealists. Source: Tom Friedman/ The World Is Flat http://www.tompeters.com/freestuff/index.php
