New Research: Introducing Digital Connectivism: A New Philosophy for the Digital Society

by Andrew White  |  November 3, 2016  |  Comments Off on New Research: Introducing Digital Connectivism: A New Philosophy for the Digital Society

My colleague Frank Buytendijk just published several notes that represent his “Fellows” project.  This is a major undertaking that any Gartner Analyst both dreads (its a whole lot of work) and seeks (as a pinnacle and crowning achievement).  The set of research is kicked off with this piece: Introducing Digital Connectivism: A New Philosophy for the Digital Society.

We are creating a digital society that is reshaping who we are and how we live. This new dynamic needs a new philosophy as our old business-driven ways don’t work anymore. Digital leaders should embrace “digital connectivism” to navigate the new digital society with skill and in comfort.

While you can “rate” this note online, please do send specific feedback to the author as well.  We crave direct feedback on how to improve our work. Thanks.

Enjoy!
