The Death of the Traditional Web: Implications for Self-Directed Learning

Dashe & Thomson

A friend of mine recently sent me a fascinating article titled “ The Shrinking of the Non-Social Web ” which contained some real eye-openers. Essentially the Web is not just evolving gradually as it absorbs the impact of smartphones and social media; it’s changing so radically that it might be better to look at what’s happening as the birth of an entirely new concept of internet interactivity and learning. Search engines, once the gatekeepers to the Web, are giving way to Facebook.

A system developed by which statistics were recorded and bets placed. Sure baseball became popular when money got involved, but the game improved dramatically when statistics allowed one to objectively decide who was good and who wasn’t. If baseball statistics had not developed to accurately evaluate a player or team, the game would have fallen out of favor with adults and returned to its original farm boy state.

The Return of the (Digital) Native | Social Learning Blog

Dashe & Thomson

does an excellent job of illustrating the dilemma with some eyepopping statistics, showing plainly that “because of their interaction with media, Digital Natives process information and think differently than prior generations.” While the increasing difficulty of engaging Digital Natives in a way that is meaningful to them is still mainly an issue for the school system, it will soon be an issue for corporate training professionals, as well.
