The Perfect Storm

This is convention season and I have been busy the past month preparing for several keynotes and sessions that I am presenting on the role of Technology in Learning. I have been doing a lot of research on the implications of “Social Software” (WEB2.0) on the experience of the learner. It is clear to me that the changes that are required and coming are not simple but very profound.

This has lead me to title my Keynote - The Perfect Storm“.........generational changes, information explosion, and technology/computing power explosion...these 3 ingredients all add up to The First Category 6 Storm in Learning...

The take away for me is that we need to prepare for this storm in learning....and actually see it as an opportunity to respond to the new realities of the way people learn and interact with one another, the web, and information. In Sun Learning Services we are moving quickly to adopt WEB2.0 paradigms in the learning process..and has we all know...WEB2.0 is not really about technology..but rather a behavioral change. Maybe the biggest challenge in the enterprise is adoption....I was wondering how the adoption curve looks like and I found a great research paper authored by Charlene Li. of Forrester Research entitled ”Social Technographics“ with a nice graphics on the adoption curve of WEB2.0.

Do you think this is accurate?
