Ignoring Internet Addiction

Despite today’s article in the Tennessean on Internet Addiction, I had already designated today to spend time reading my 695 emails, 46 RSS feeds, blog comments, facebook updates, and ALA Connect updates. I had allowed myself the luxury to read and research everything that caught my attention today without worrying that I should be doing the dishes or vacuuming. One of the sites I’ve spent time contemplating today is 2020 Forecast: Creating the Future of Learning by KnowledgeWorks Foundation. 

The forecast contains four major types of information – all of which were very interesting to me:

  • Drivers of Change 
  • Trends
  • Signals 
  • Learning agents

I appreciate AASL Executive Director Julie Walker pointing out this site. Please take time to explore. And remember, you don’t have to feel guilty or addicted at exploring what interests you on a holiday weekend.
