Keynote 1: Lee Crockett

Great start to the proceedings at ULearn10. Lee Crockett provided an entertaining look at learning based on his book Understanding the Digital Generation. Worth exploring further are the different fluencies as described by the 21st C fluency project: solution fluency, creative fluency, collaboration fluency, media fluency and information fluency. These provide an immediate challenge to what and how we teach.
Also enjoyed again the Daniel Simons video on the Invisible Gorilla and while some of the connections were tentative at best I think, like the intention of the video really, people will draw different inferences from the clip. It's worth exploring some of the thoughts about what we see or don't see, what we all indivdually draw from the same material presented on the invisible gorilla blog.
