Era youtuber: Fin de las generaciones, inicio de la libertad – El caparazón blog

¿Termina el Individuo conectado con el concepto de generación? Resulta una coincidencia curiosa que estemos llegando al fin del abecedario cuando denominamos generación Z a la de los nacidos desde mediados de los noventa a nuestros tiempos. Porque es cierto que son distintos, muy distintos de sus hermanos mayores de la Generación Y (nacidos en los ochenta), pero también lo es que de algún modo, tanto estos últimos como los de generaciones precedentes (los setenteros X,  principalmente), estamos adquiriendo, al ritmo que el mundo de la aceleración tecnológica obliga, muchas de las características de la generación más conectada. Ocurre de algún modo, en buena medida gracias a las TIC, que ya no tiene sentido describir a las generaciones por año de nacimiento. Estar vivo en el año 2015 significa, gracias a Internet y las redes sociales, algo mucho más independiente a la franja generacional, a la edad que se tenga, que nunca antes.

The Basics of Motivational eLearning Design

When we think of the word, motivation, instantly two things come to mind. First, when we are young, there are many outside things that motivate us, a desire to do something, the reality of punishment from our parents, positive and negative reinforcement of what we are doing, etc.  All of these things help to motivate children and in some case it has a positive effect and in other cases it does not. The more proactive the motivation, the more positive the response to that motivation, the more reactionary the motivation, the more negative the response.  The second picture that comes to mind is a learned reaction to something. Like Pavlov and his dogs, which would salivate when he rang the bell, motivation can be at times subconscious.
