I would like to alert you to an upcoming web event this week from “The Future of Education” series hosted by the wonderful Steve Hargadon. This “webinar” is free and open to anyone; if you miss the live show, it will be recorded for viewing at a time that works for you. The web event will be held via Elluminate, which you can install/download for free; I suggest logging in about 20-30 minutes ahead of time if you have not used Elluminate so that you can configure you audio settings before the web event begins.
On Wednesday, June 17, 8PM EST, you can listen and participate in the web event, “The Future of Books and Reading”; you can access the event by going to this link at the Future of Education. Here is how Steve describes the upcoming panel discussion:
There are dramatic changes taking place that seem likely to change our experiences with books and reading. They include: pre-publication “wikified” collaboration, electronic delivery, open licensing, increased author-reader and reader-reader conversation, shared annotations, and more. Join this amazing panel as we peer into the near and long-term future of the reading experience.
