World 4.0

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

Yes, I know the title for this blog post is a corny take on Web 2.0. Yes, I know “Web 2.0” is a term smirked at by some new media scholars. But it got you reading, didn’t it? Take a look at the YouTube video post from XPlane. It provides some interesting fact about social media, mobile devices, etc. It’s worth the five minutes it takes to watch.

When I worked for the public school system, earlier versions of this caught our faculty/staff interest. The original concept was created by a high school teacher to start a staff discussion about what kids needed to be prepared for in the 21st Century. It went viral (see Did You Know and Did You Know 2.0). This version is less education focused, but still intriguing. Xplane did the 2.0 version as well. They do some pretty cool work.

To give credit where it is due, I saw this in a post on Garr Reynold’s Presentation Zen blog. He offers great insight about presentations. You should check the blog out… if you haven’t already!
