PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

JP EmotivI'm back from an extended sabbatical during which I read mountains of books and wrote oceans of texts on subjects I hadn't studied deeply before: urban education, augmented cognition, e-learning, EEGs, political science, classical architecture and the history of the book, among other things. 2015 marks my twentieth year on the web, and I'll be writing about some of the things I've learned in the blog at JPowers.IN3.ORG. I'll also post about some interesting consulting projects, my upcoming conference work and the future of education in a networked world.

Three Big Questions: What's True? Who Benefits? What's Next?
Consultation and Analysis

FOCUS  Developing technology strategies for media- and technology-driven organizations begins with a hard-headed look at What's True: Separate the hype from the hope. What do customers really want? What can we reasonably deliver? How much will it all cost? And Who Benefits? Legacy buyers, new customers, employees and investors are in line before strategic partners, key vendors or corporate profilers. And What's Net? What's the best that can happen if it al works out? And what disruptive changes might make all our planning obsolete. Contact IN3.ORG to start the questioning.
