The model for knowledge in the past was acquisition, mastery, and then mentoring or teaching others. Today, I admit I am acquiring and sharing faster than I can master or even contemplate the material I encounter on Twitter, Scoop-it, and other online curation spaces. As I find resources on topics of personal interest (and I am focusing on educational content mostly in relation to information literacy), I gather and share but never have enough time to fully reflect on my learning.
In other words, I am teaching faster than I am learning.
I am turning into Merlin. (He lived his life backwards.)
My concept of linear time has changed in relation to my learning. Was it an allusion that once upon a time I could fully grasp a concept?
I hope we can all catch up to what we once knew someday.
