Sun, Elite, and the future

Jay Cross

Awash in multiple distractions, most have the attention spans of gnats. Ye Gods, most of them don’t read email any more, much less books. They live in the fast lane, skittering across the top of important issues without ever getting to the heart of the matter.

Our digital future 4: Pervasive computing

Learning with 'e's

Now, for those who are unfamiliar with the Reform Symposium, let me explain: It's a 72 hour live web based symposium that follows the sun. Participants can join in and leave at any time, as the rolling programme of keynotes, discussions, panels and seminars/workshops plays out in real time on screen. It was a distinct honour to be invited to keynote, and I spoke on one of my favourite (and probably most dangerous) of topics - the future of education.

Re-imagining the Book

Jay Cross

I thought I’d be able to do this by changing the voice of the Fieldbook. A friend of mine who has published numerous books sent the Fieldbook to his editor, a PhD English grad in India. These pages document the progress of my thinking about the book. In the next session at Overlap, groups of half a dozen people each drew and described an idea where we were looking for help. We reported back to the larger group (about 50 of us) and proposed projects we’d like to tackle.

LearnTrends: Backchannel

Jay Cross

The back channel becomes part of the overall message. Moderator (Harold Jarche): traditional training & education has driven much of our self-direction and creativity out of us - need to relearn. Moderator (Clark Quinn): world as biosphere, org as performance ecosystem.

Thriving in the Net-Work Era

Jay Cross

That led me to an article Harold and I had written on the demise of the training department. The Future of the Training Department. The latter 20th Century was the golden era of the training department. Before the 20th Century, training per se did not exist outside the special needs of the church and the military. Now the training department may be at the end of its life cycle. Factories require groups of people working together.
