Lecture on Adult Learners and Use of Technology

I think the link at the bottom of this - which redirects to a lecture (1hour 2 minutes) -  has implications for how we (1) teach adult learners and how we (2) think about the future of education and technology.

I don't know how to "scale" this to you as a ten out of ten on lecture - as I find that different persons learn different things - but I found the information credible, amazing, interesting, and "futuristic."  

Presented by:  Dr. Mark David Milliron serves as the Deputy Director for Postsecondary Improvement with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, leading efforts to increase student success in the US postsecondary education sector. He is an award-winning leader, author, speaker, and consultant well known for exploring leadership development, future trends, learning strategies, and the human side of technology change. Mark works with universities, community colleges, K-12 schools, corporations, associations, and government agencies across the country and around the world. In addition, he serves on numerous other corporate, nonprofit, and education boards and advisory groups.

It's from the most recent WCET Connect Conference -
