In early April I presented (in Dutch) at the e-Learning Event about the quantified self and learning. I have now translated the slides into English as I think the topic is important enough. The presentation explains (in five parts) why the quantified self movement will have big consequences for how we will learn in the future. You can download a full resolution PDF file, watch a video (with slides) in Dutch or watch it on SlideShare:
Below an outline of the presentation and links to all the sources I used.
A short explanation about what an innovation manager does and how an innovation funnel works.
The scenario process is explained and the four scenarios that were create at the Online Educa workshop are presented.
The history of the quantifying yourself (and the scientist and artists experimenting with it) is shown. Consumer products show that it is now not only scientist and artist anymore.
