An interesting perspective from Kate Ray on Web 3.0.
The video highlights the challenges of information overload, search, the need for structure, filtering and keeping up to date.
Some highlights that caught my attention were;
Does the world make sense or do we make sense of the world?
Web 3.0 is all about relationships between people and information to give context and meaning
The future of web 3.0 is about evolution, revolution, systems that reason and we can’t imagine what will happen in the future
Some interesting predictions here including this one;
“Professional knowledge will become obsolete almost as quickly as it’s acquired. An individual’s professional knowledge is becoming outdated at a much faster rate than ever before.
Most professions will require continuous instruction and retraining. Rapid changes in the job market and work-related technologies will necessitate job education for almost every worker. At any given moment, a substantial portion of the labor force will be in job retraining programs. -Marvin J. Cetron and Owen Davies, “Trends Shaping Tomorrow’s World, Part Two,” May-June 2008, p 41″
I love the simplicity of this…..
The knowledge networker is described here by Mohamed Amine Chatti ;
“I believe that the new knowledge age is demanding new crucial skills based on knowledge networking rather than knowledge creation abilities. Since knowledge is distributed and ubiquitous in nature, everyone has to be a good knowledge networker. A Knowledge networker is one who has the ability to;
- identify connections, recognize patterns, and make sense between different knowledge sources.
- locate the person or the community/communities with the required know-how that can help achieving better results.
- navigate and learn across different communities.
- Connect and collaborate in different knowledge networks.”
I connected this with a previous post concerning new skills needed to help us cope with the abundance of information available to us;
Recognising patterns & trends
Filtering of knowledge and extracting the important elements
Determining the value of knowledge and ensuring it’s authentic
Achieving our purpose or goal by navigating between people, technologies, repositories and ideas.
Critical & creative thinking
Building networks in order to stay current and informed
Focusing on important tasks while undergoing a deluge of information
Acceptance of uncertainty
I wonder how different these skills will need to be in 12 months time?
Here’s another great one from Joan Thanks again.
A new way to search the Wiki.
What a fantastic tool this is! Wikimindmap
It links mind maps and the wiki together.
Did You Know; Shift Happens – Globalization; Information Age
Really worth looking at this if you’ve not seen it. I experienced a combination of emotions whilst watching it.
