Elliott Masie posted a great article — “ Your Learners Have Attitude ” — that inspired me to really think about the changes occurring in the learning industry and how they influence what I do and how I think. Whether within an organization or at home, with adults or kids, I’m amazed by how much has changed since I began working in the industry in the mid-90s.
