Brian Lamb and D’Arcy Norman were our guest presenters this week.  They indicated that the corporate/management world and the technology world are incompatible due the quick evolution of technology. Institutional change cannot keep up with the technological change.  Research and development usually is done without “approval” because it takes too long for the powers to be (in the top-down model) to make these types of decisions. The more I research the Steven Johnson’s theory of emergence, the more I think that this bottom-up model would help promote technology in a positive manner in the education system.
