The arriving socially networked online world is flashed at you through this video — and it is an exciting place to see. Changes in communication, media, commerce, and social venues are huge. I continue to be astounded that schools and education are still very little in the mix. But there are two facts in the video about education and they are very interesting.
So we think people don’t like to read books except on paper: 35% of book sales on Amazon are for the handheld digital reading device, the Kindle. And then there is this fact that I have not seen in the news: online students out performed those receiving face-to-face instruction.
Thanks to Teemu Arina for this one. Teemu is one of the most brilliant and perceptive people I know. To stay at the edge, read his blog where I found this video.
