INFO SHOCK Information doubles every 5-7 yearsDelivery of information increased by a factor of 1 billion since the telegraphComputer networks will carry data 100 times faster than today's Internet (i.e., download a 30 volume encyclopedia in -2 seconds)

The need for life-long learning will be essential. Technology will change everything we do so quickly, that even highly trained workers will have.. before reschooling will be needed.
Futurist Arthur B. Shostak, Director of of the Center of Employment Futures Drexel University
JobsPeople will have to redirect skills 5-7 times in a career. By 2000, 75% of workers will need to upgrade skills as 400,000 jobs/year become obsolete.A loss of 58% of jobs with no special skills
Since technology is changing so fast these days...Looks like its steady training for us from now on. Mike Steens, systems technology specialist at Hewlett Packard in Colorado
Traditional workshop/classroom replaced by modular web-based training in short, flexible coursesExecutives expect training delivered by new learning technologies to rise by 67% in 1997 and triple by 2000.Companies will spend $6 billion/year for online training.More use of streaming media/video webcasts
With adults over 25 now constituting the majority ofcollege students in the United States...online education will likely be the only instructional alternative open to them.
Richard Vigilante, Director of the Virtual College at New York Universitys School of Continuing Education
Take 90 seconds!What have you learned?
What Brain Research Says...Learning occurs if information is meaningful to the learner.Social interaction is a powerful learning tool.Learners must be actively involved in creating knowledge.Learning only occurs when learners have processing time.
Brain Principles for TrainersAn enriched environment provides choices for the learner. Dittos dont grow dendrites!For retention, the learner needs both massed practice (going over the same thing several times) and distributed practice (continuing to do this over a long period of time)
To upgrade skills of non-mousersThe challenge...
