En av de virkelig interessante diskusjonene de siste åra går på multitasking, serial tasking som mange snakker om, infotention som Howard Rheingold skriver om i boka Net Smart, og om hvordan vi kan lære i teknologitunge miljøer. Howard Rheingold er her i samtale med Cathy Davidson som har skrevet boka Now you see it. How the Brain Science of Attention Will Transform the Way We Live, Work, and Learn
This radical experiment is at the heart of Davidson's inspiring new book. Using cutting-edge research on the brain, she shows how "attention blindness" has produced one of our society's greatest challenges: while we've all acknowledged the great changes of the digital age, most of us still toil in schools and workplaces designed for the last century. Davidson introduces us to visionaries whose groundbreaking ideas—from schools with curriculums built around video games to companies that train workers using virtual environments—will open the doors to new ways of working and learning. A lively hybrid of Thomas Friedman and Normal Doidge, Now You See It is a refreshingly optimistic argument for a bold embrace of our connected, collaborative future.
