Last week, I posted the following to Blended Librarian:
“eLearn Magazine recently included a short interview with John Seely Brown. Brown, a senior fellow at the Annenberg Center at USC, used the interview to talk about the web as an environment in which learners can actually learn as they do, not just learn in about things in the abstract. He also discusses the social aspects of learning with technology. The interview ends with the statement “We are entering a new world of learning possibilities.” The interview is quite short and interesting… it’s worth a look.
Some of the specific technologies touched on included videotaped lectures, the KEEP Toolkit, wikis, podcasting, vodcasting, and interactive visualization tools. Are there any really interesting, interactive, and/or social technologies that you’re using in library instruction?”
The Blended Librarian is a really interesting concept! Check out the website and join if you’re interested. (Once you join, you can comment on the Blended Librarian discussion boards, too!)
