The changes that are occurring with technology are out pacing the level of learning, and teachers are finding themselves needing to improvise as well as question their teaching methods…
Much of this comes to light in an interview with Renata Santiago, conducted by Mark Hillary of IT Decisions. Both are from São Paulo — and the concerns and thoughts shared by Renata are more universal than many believe. In this video she talks to Mark about the use of social media by corporations with some very thoughtful and insightful comments.
Renata Santiago is:
. Social Media & Communications Graduate Professor at FAAP
. Social Media Specialist & Strategist at CDN Digital
. Professor at Communication Management for Digital Environments Postgraduate Course at Senac
Recorded in São Paulo, May 24, 2011
How does this affect HRIS? What is similar to her comments to what we are facing today? We have already seen a vast change in the last 5 years, yet is it the systems that are not keeping pace with the changes — or our own education?
Much of the unemployment today is being attributed to jobs that USED TO be performed by hand — now, complex machinery is performing the work. Not enough training has been provided for theses machines to the employed, and yet new machinery is already on its way… Innovation needs to occur in the classroom but can our teachers deal with the changes better than those that are under-trained in the other industries??? What kind of dominoes are we facing?
With thanks to Mark Hillary for the video and Renata for sharing her comments….
