Steven Bell and John Shank, co-founders of the Blended Librarians Online Learning Community and their guest, Kyle Peck, invite you to join them for the live webcast of a free-wheeling discussion based on David Warlick's statement about education, "If you can imagine it, it's probably closer to reality than to fiction." Can that be true? Are the technologies advancing to the point where they no longer stop us from creating our ideal educational environments? If we were to "reinvent" education today, discarding things that don't make sense and doing what we know would work, are there technological pieces missing? If not, what's stopping us? This session will quickly paint an image or two of what education might become, and what impact this may have for academic libraries and how should the library be transformed, too?
Join us for the discussion “Rethinking the Future of Education and Libraries: Where Are We Going, and Why?” on Tuesday, May 10, 2011 at 3 pm. EST.
