Be-ing Different, #Disruptive and Deviant!

Some of us come from learning environments that labelled students who challenged teachers or their learning process as being “disruptive” and rebellious. Some of these students were punished, threatened, or ignored until they complied with the accepted “norm”. As a consequence, some students developed “negative anchors” around being labelled as “disruptive” and learnt to avoid their teacher’s displeasure and disapproval, and developed more compliant behaviors that effectively “kept them out of trouble”. Others who rebelled often missed the opportunity to benefit from a traditional education. Only exceptional teachers and educators were curious and questioned as to why they were thinking or behaving “differently” to “the pack”... http://bit.ly/17VYvVD

This way of working is no longer viable or sustainable in our globalized, competitive, commoditized and connected corporate world. Complacent, inwardly focused, conventional ways of doing business results only in incremental change, whilst deep transformation is required to change the business game.

Byrd’s Eye View – Disruptive, #Disruption, Disturb, The New Norm

Disruptive technologies do not always lead to disruption that can disturb a social norm. However, through the combination of digital technology, IP communications and devices that support mobility, we are experiencing the permanent changing of several social norms. Long held practices or appropriate behaviors are being dispensed with and the voices of those in opposition to the changes are no longer relevant. My observations of these changing norms are as follows:... http://bit.ly/17aZAdW

3D Printing: #DisruptiveTechnology on the Launchpad

3D printers ‘print’ objects in three-dimensions by melting melting a materials like plastic and then depositing them layer-by-layer, ultimately creating a three dimensional object. Plastic is commonly used, but other materials like metal, polymer powders, or chocolate can also be used. Homes of the future may have 3D printers to print out clothes and furniture. NASA plans to build a 3D printer that can be sent to space and available to ‘print’ most anything needed, like spacecraft pipes and parts, and even food... http://bit.ly/17aZm6A
