Editor’s note: A timely reminder here that we need to ensure people understand some basic principles of how technology works – something that’s lost on technology companies.
Editor’s note: This is a must-read for any learning designer. Psychologist and cognitive scientist Dr. Susan Weinschenk explains the impact of psychology on design and human interaction.
Editor’s note: This article clearly defines user experience and how it relates to usability and user-centred design. There are some great examples of good and poor US design too.
Editor’s note: Doug Shaw shared this article in our recent Action for Digital Literacy experiment. There is some great advice here on how to set goals and achieve what you want to achieve.

Editor’s note: Management professor and journalist Stefan stern provides some good tips for managers on how to survive the coming year.
Editor’s note: Tis the season of trends articles and predictions for the New Year. These predictions feel a bit tongue in cheek but are all the better for that. Pragmatic and realistic, which we like.
Editor’s note: Economist Tim Harford brings some perspective to the robots are taking our jobs narrative (myth).
Editor’s note: This is the inaugural lecture of Professor Nick van Dam, professor of corporate learning and development at Nyenrode Business University in The Netherlands. It covers the changing landscape of learning, how humans learn and how L&D needs to respond. A long, very worthwhile read.

Very interesting read on performance support. You may find the difference between blackbox and glassbox performance support useful when designing these types of interventions.
An excellent resource on chatbots, including links to articles explaining what they are and how the technology works. Includes many examples of chatbots too.
