Two Types of People

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with Sage Executive Group Real Estate

There are two types of people in this world, those who believe in two types of people and those who do not.

In this poignant TED Talk Sir Ken Robinson makes the case for individualized learning - a revolution - not an evolution - of learning and school systems. In my last Blog I re-blogged a schedule for free ActiveRain University classes on social Networking, blogging etc. Today, I went to sign up for Monday's class and realized the University courses  are not webinars, or tele-conference classes - but rather part of a RainCamp week, where seats are in seats.

WOW! What an illumination. I was content with my virtual friendships and knowledge gained via my internet connection - and then THUD - I was bounced back into the dirt world.

Sir Ken Robinson discusses educational challenges and changes - amongst them, the wristwatch - soon to be extinct, as our teens and youth opt out of the wrist watch fashion - as an outdated, linear, single function possession.

I have several wrist watches and each one makes it's own fasion statement or has senitmental value. I don't feel properly dressed unless I'm wearing a watch. For me, it is one item that will never go out of style!

Sharon,

We gave up on wristwatches a long time ago--10years.  The watch industry would not agree as they are churning out all types of watch fasions, and there is a innovative web site in 3D honoring the watch and all its designs.  Thanks for sharing this.  A
