What does this mean? • We have to recognize that all of us grew up in a par#cular era, one that civiliza#on has never seen before. • We built ins#tu#onal prac#ces that prepared us to live in a period of rela#ve stability -‐ where skills lasted a life#me. • Moving from the Informa#on Age to an Age of Networked Intelligence.
Final Thoughts • For genera#ons we have been about making things faster, shorter, smaller à eﬃciency. • We’re in an age where everyone has Facebook, most people have smart phones and TwiPer, and everything moves super quickly. • With that being said, we’ve started to depend more on technology and less on personal interac5ons with others. • Although we have this amazing inﬂux of informa#on at our ﬁnger#ps, it’s more important to appreciate the real-‐life friendships that you will make throughout your #me in middle school and into high school, college and beyond. • Con#nue to be kind, compassionate and loving to one another at home, at school, at work, and in every interac#on throughout the day.
Just stop and think for a second about all that we have been through in the last month. There are powerful messages here.
