The Red Queen Hypothesis Unveiled

As many of us are familiar with "Alice in Wonderland", I was blown away that there was an underlying explanation of co-adaptation (or as evolutionary biologists call it...co-evolution).

Malice In Wonderland: The Red Queen Theory from Ed Watkins on Vimeo.

Yes, it explains important mechanisms of adaptations in nature...but let us not limit this theory to ONLY biology.

The notion of 'running to stay in place' applies to the relationship between humans and technology!

I have to keep learning and keep using all the new things just to remain the innovative person I am today.

To be a technology literate teacher...to stay knowledgeable about using technology...to stay up to date... to stay caught up with the kids... We have to be an ongoing learners....never stop running!
