Knowledge Today

Daniel Purlich's picture

In today's world new information increases exponentially. 24 of the 25 largest newspapers are experiencing record declines in circulation because we no longer search for the news, the news finds us. Education is following the same path.
2009 US Department of Education study revealed that on average, online students out performed those receiving face-to-face instruction
1 in 6 higher education students are enrolled in online curriculum
80% of Twitter usage is on mobile devices…people update anywhere, anytime…imagine what that means for bad customer experiences?
Generation Y and Z consider e-mail passé…In 2009 Boston College stopped distributing e-mail addresses to incoming freshmen
According to Jeff Bezos 35% of book sales on Amazon are for the Kindle when available
24 of the 25 largest newspapers are experiencing record declines in circulation because we no longer search for the news, the news finds us.
Much of the knowledge which is acquired in school, college, and in the workplace, rapidly becomes obsolete.
Informal learning accounts for over 75% of the learning taking place in organizations today
Often, the most valuable learning takes place serendipitously, by random chance e.g. via a google search or by just wanting to spend 15 minutes researching a topic
Most companies, however, focus only on formal learning programs which are too lengthy, losing valuable opportunities and outcomes.
