The Future of Learning Institutions in a Digital Age

In this report, Cathy Davidson and David Theo Goldberg focus on the potential for shared and interactive learning made possible by the Internet. They argue that the single most important characteristic of the Internet is its capacity for world-wide community and the limitless exchange of ideas. The Internet brings about a way of learning that is not new or revolutionary but is now the norm for today’s graduating high school and college classes. It is for this reason that Davidson and Goldberg call on us to examine potential new models of digital learning and rethink our virtually enabled and enhanced learning institutions.

The Unanticipated Benefits of Content Curation

This is a slideshare presentation by Beth Kanter on Curation. If you've followed this topic for a while, you've seen other great posts by Beth on Curation such as this one for NTEN but this one is an up-to-date version which is worth looking at again. 

 

Curation is an idea that has been maturing fast recently. And it's great seeing Beth push the anlysis and highlights its specifities and best practices. She also commented this presentation and the corresponding webinar here on her blog.
