When it comes to new technologies, are you mainly a visionary or an implementer? Find out by taking this quiz. Tell us your results in the comments!
Nicole Hennig created this short personality quiz as a fun way to get us thinking about what skills, talents, and temperaments are useful for technology work in libraries. It’s not scientific — just a fun way to get us thinking.
In her upcoming Infopeople course, Nicole and course participants will look at two roles or types of people, visionaries and implementers, in more depth. The course will include strategies for each type. Course participants will also learn the best methods and strategies for tracking technology trends, the best resources for keeping up, how to evaluate what you’ve learned, the importance of experimenting with new technologies, and how to plan for implementation of new technologies that meet your users’ needs. It’s going to be a fun and useful course! Interested in learning more about Emerging Technologies? Registration and details are at: https://infopeople.org/civicrm/event/info?id=868.
