Reflections on EdTech
Malcolm Gladwell, in his classic book “The Tipping Point,” explores the different ways that trends develop, and how ideas rapidly spread in ways not often anticipated by their originators. In discussing this phenomenon, Gladwell identifies different types of personalities that serve to help spread ideas as they go viral, including the “Maven” and the “Connector.”
The Maven represents a personality that likes to get into the nitty gritty details of specific areas. He would be the person that you would turn to when deciding what kind of camera to buy, as well as where to get it and how to get bonus American Express points by using a specific web link. The Maven enjoys the search for the perfect whatever, but is not content to simply amass knowledge. He lives to teach others, to spread the knowledge he has gained and share it with others.
