Learning, Freedom and the Web

Learning, Freedom and the Web | Digital Teesside | Scoop.it

An online compelation of insights and predictions about the future of learning and the central part that the web will play in that shpere. The components for this eBook have been compiled from contributors to Mozilla's Learning Freedom and the Web Festival held in Barcelona in 2010. Mark Surman, Executive Director of Mozilla, summarised that event in the following way:

 

"Barcelona sparked a conversation about how the future of learning and the future of the web are intertwined, and about the role both play in fueling creativity, innovation and common wealth. This is a conversation that is growing as we speak.

Hopefully, this book will help you find an entry point into this conversation. A place to grab hold so you can tinker, hack and make the future of learning in your own way"

 

Read all about the seeds of the educational revolution here.
