Homo Zappiens is an important book by Wim Veen, a professor at Delft University of Technology and himself a father of a zappien. Wim convincingly shows the positive aspects of short attention span fever, disdain for school, and independence.
This is the first optimistic take on kids and technology I've seen. Their relationship with school has changed fundamentally as these children consider schools as just one of the focal points of their lives. Far more important are their networking with friends, their part-time jobs and going out during weekends. Homo zappiens seems to consider schools as disconnected institutions, more or less irrelevant to them as far as their daily life is concerned.
Inside schools they show hyperactive behavior and short attention spans, and both teachers and parents have concerns. In fact, Homo zappiens are digital, and school is analog. At its core, "Future society needs people who can address complex and fuzzy problems from different angles and come up with unexpected solutions.
Acquiring content as the main goal of education will be less important, replaced instead by meaning and relevance. We see similar designs in non-linear learning theory and non-linear design of technology based training.
Instead of working alone, Homo zappiens use human and technical networks when needed for instant replies. I interviewed Wim when writing Informal Learning, but we independently arrived at the same definition of learning. We call this learning. Because they can Not because previous generations did not feel the same tug of the pendulum starting, but rather because they have finally been given the tools technology to do so.
The entrepreneurial learner, one who takes his own view on the world and uses his own resources to solve a problem. Homo Zappiens is a sometimes helpful, albeit uneven discussion of children growing up in the Digital Age. Some of the assumptions are already shopworn, but the overall awareness building that the book contributes makes it a competent primer on the subject. The book is a stock paperback, hardly pages. Buyer beware: there are no nuggets here that make it worth the price.
