    • evolution?
    • Musing
      All around us, we see technology adopted and adapted because it makes it easier, more effective and efficient
    • Yet...
      In education we worry that making things easy or more effective might somehow be ‘cheating’
    • A short history of human communication..
    • 1

    • Many

    • Hi thanks for getting thinking today!
      The way I see it I would split a talk into two sections as I believe a connected world challenges our thinking in two ways
      1. What we teach
      2. The way we teach
      What we teach
      .... my view is that we need to educate ourselves ( young and old alike) to find coherence in a complex world.
    • The way we teach will need to change to capture the opportunities of this new world. You both are much better placed than me to see how technology can help but connective technology must be the servant not the master of this new teaching.
    • Connect: people and ideas
    • Creeping lateralism...
      Sometimes it can feel as though we are travelling up and down in the vertical elevator of bureaucracy: glum with the realisation that you can’t even get to certain floors without a swipe card
    • Warp
    • Web 2.0
      Participation 2.0
    • Today, thanks to widespread broadband access and social media applications, in particular YouTube and Twitter, the secondary audience is now much bigger and much closer than it has ever been before...
      Julian Morrow – Andrew Olle Lecture 2009
    • it's now easy for them to access controversial content online.
      And one of the problems with giving people the ability to make up their own minds is that they do.
      Julian Morrow – Andrew Olle Lecture 2009
    • Multiple
      Pathways and
    • Multiple possibilities – bright outcomes
    • Breaking out of the linear model of the past
    • Dealing with a very different mob..and some other influences coming up.
    • The pram pushers will push us. Let’s not respond by pushing back.
    • For some of our more experienced people:
      Growing valuable skills as we move toward retirement.
    • the granny cloud.
      Big ideas
    • connect
    • Growing COWs: with as little bull as possible
    • What are YOU doing to know more about things like:
    • Remembering why we are here includes the imperative to be a part of planning for their future.
    • New lessons from migrating geese:
      • Just having efficiency figures for doing the same thing better is not really enough to prevent losses on the way through.
      • We need a shared understanding of the destination, but an acceptance of a range of routes for getting to the same place.
      • It is the modern manifestation of the internet paradigm: getting there by multiple pathways.
      Remember the geese stories?
