Source: http://goo.gl/TFRh4
In considering the Top 5 Trends in EdTech, I found this particular perspective engaging - The Rise of Mobile and the Return of Neolithic-Style Hunter gatherers.

It makes some fascinating points, featured briefly here but worth clicking through to read the rest:
  • Partake of All Screens, Loyal to None
  • Every Hunter for Himself
  • The Relentless Toolmakers
  • The Earth is Flat
  • Freedom over Security
  • Gathering of the Tribes
  • The Improvisation of the Hunt
You can guess at the thrust of the article through this brief listing of section titles, so I encourage you to read the original.

In a word? Extinction. Still, what fun!
