The first half of the book explores this world of technology and the 6 exponential trends in technological development that govern it while the second half of the book examines its impact on education, learning, and teaching, and forecasts a vision for the future. At the end of each chapter are discussion questions useful for jumpstarting conversations and thinking about change both personally and professionally.
6 Exponential Trends:
1. Moore's Law - technological processing power and speed doubling exponentially at least every 12 months.
2. Photonics-exponentially increasing bandwidth speeds
3. The Internet revolution
4. The age of Infowhelm
5. Disruptive technology that eventually diminishes or replaces the previous generation of technology.
