Attention Today

Howard Rheingold’s article “Attention, and other 21st Century Social Media Literacies” has useful pointers on reputation and diffuse reciprocity. People have to use this to build their personal learning networks. Important questions here that I can take to my students are: Which people are you going to allow into your attention sphere? Who is going to take up your mind space? Is the person trustworthy? Entertaining? Useful? An expert?

With the glut of content, the solution can be critical consumption.
