Information R/evolution

Michael Wesch has done it again. For those who enjoyed his “The Machine Is Us/ing Us” video all about Web2.0, this recent one about the Information R/evolution is equally as challenging.

This video explores the changes in the way we find, store, create, critique, and share information. It has been created as a conversation starter, and works especially well when brainstorming with people about the near future and the skills needed in order to harness, evaluate, and create information effectively.

A useful resource to have on hand when considering the idea of “literacies”, and the rationale for changes in the new curriculum released in NZ yesterday!

One thought on “Information R/evolution

  1. Thanks Derek. A tremendous plug for David Weinberger’s recently published “Everything is Miscellaneous” and another great staffroom professional learning group discussion starter. Especially if the librarian’s invited.

    Did you also see his vision of (USA) students today? on Youtube
