Educational mash-up

  • Gladwell’s 10.000 hours of directed practice.
  • A recent New York Times Q & A with Google’s Karen May, VP of people development, talking about training. “If people opt in, versus being required to go, you’re more likely to have a better outcome.”
  • Glenn Singleton’s statistics about “the gap.”
  • Stephen Covey’s reminder that we can’t drastically change outcomes without changing the paradigm.

Is there a solution here somewhere? Can we stand the heat if we change our paradigm? Can we stand the results, if we don’t?
