Everyone with internet access has the power to be both a creator and consumer of content. All this content contributes to the information tsunami that overwhelms us all. This presentation focuses on attention and the challenges of managing it in an information-rich world as lifelong learners and educators. Attention is explored as a scarce resource (Simon, 1971) and a digital literacy (Rheingold, 2012). The presenter will share examples of some digital tools and apps which he uses to manage the information tsunami. The audience will also be encouraged to discuss the digital tools they use to manage attention in a noisy 21st century world.
