Law of accelerating returns
Law of Accelerating Returns

  • An analysis of the history of technology shows that technological change is exponential, contrary to the common-sense "intuitive linear" view. So we won't experience 100 years of progress in the 21st century -- it will be more like 20,000 years of progress (at today's rate). The "returns," such as chip speed and cost-effectiveness, also increase exponentially.

  • Facts are ubiquitous, nearly free and available at the speed of light. What begins to matter more is the ability to place these facts in context and to deliver them with emotional impact.

  • Abundance - So now we have time to devote to other more “meaning creating” activities.

  • Asia - has become a vast pool of cheap labor, that’s where the jobs will continue to go

  • Automation - machines can do it better and faster than humans.

  • To compete, students need to develop more of the “conceptual” side of themselves; they need to create.



Students who are they
Students, who are they?

  • They “are used to the instantaneity of hypertext, downloaded music, phones in their pockets, a library on their laptops, beamed conversations and instant messaging. They’ve been networked most or all of their lives.” (Marc Prensky)

  • A digital native is a person for whom digital technologies already existed when they were born, and hence has grown up with digital technology such as computers, the Internet, mobile phones and MP3s.

  • A digital immigrant is an individual who grew up without digital technology and adopted it later.
