This past Wednesday, “The Future of Education” series hosted by the wonderful Steve Hargadon held a webinar called “The Future of Books and Reading”. This free web event was recorded, and you can watch the broadcast via Elluminate, which you can install/download for free.
You can access the event by going to this link at the Future of Education. Look for the link at the top that says “Full Elluminate Recording”; it will take just a few minutes for you to install and load the Elluminate platform/recording at no charge. Here is how Steve describes the conversation/ 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.
If you are interested in books and reading, then take some time to listen to this thought provoking discussion!
