Rethinking Education Project

PROJECT: video blog (vlog) or movie (4-6 minutes for either) demonstrating your understanding of the changes in education, media and books, and the acquisition, transmission, collection, curation, and archiving of “knowledge” and information in the 21st century due to rapid technological change AND your vision for the future.  What will/should school, libraries, and work look like and be like? What will happen to our traditional means of gaining, sharing, and saving humanity’s knowledge? What are the implications?

SOURCES: “Knowing Knowledge” book (pdf); socratic Twitter archive; previous blog posts on libraries, harnessing world knowledge, etc.; this blog post; other resources you might find. You need to CITE SOURCES (at least 5)
