Information Abundance and Its Implications for Education

Information Abundance and Its Implications for Education | Educación flexible y abierta | Scoop.it
As I read through the social media networks, the concept of information overload is continually being discussed.... I have re-framed information overload from being discussed as a cautionary consequence of the technology age to us living in a time of information abundance.
As educators, we have this gift of information abundance. It should be leveraged and strategically used for our own and our students’ learning. When educators do not acknowledge, incorporate, and integrate the many types and uses of our real world technologies, they are failing their students.

 A great post by Jackie Gerstein! She outlines 5 significant implications for education that educational leaders, policy makers and educators themselves need to heed.

How do librarians adapt the way we approach what we do when we come from a tradition of information scarcity to an information age when information abundance is the new norm?

David Bramley's curator insight, January 10, 2013 5:20 PM

I've become more than a little obsessed with adding social learning to the educational offer for adults.  This post is a timely reminder that more fundamental changs are required, where educators are no longer the gatekeepers to information, open access to the internet is more important than expensive text books and information and digital literacies need to be embedded across the curriculum.

 

As a bonus, right at the end there is a great Pezi  on Personal Learning Networks or Students.  Brilliant :)
