Writer Howard Rheingold will be giving a free webinar on Thursday March 22, at 8:30 am. This is a Horizon Connect webinar launched by the New Media Consortium, "featuring thought leaders, game changers, and innovators who are making a difference right now in the world of educational technology."
Rheingold will discuss his new book Net Smart: How to Thrive Online. This is a great opportunity to learn how to more strategically think about and apply digital media in your own work.
He describes his book - “How can we use digital media so that they help us become empowered participants rather than passive consumers? In Net Smart, I show how to use social media intelligently, humanely, and, above all, mindfully.
Mindful use of digital media means thinking about what we are doing, cultivating an ongoing inner inquiry into how we want to spend our time. I outline five fundamental digital literacies, online skills that will help us do this: attention, participation, collaboration, critical consumption of information (or "crap detection"), and network smarts.”
He will also be giving away 5 books during the talk. RSVP on the Facebook page event and learn more about the March 22 webinar and the book give-away.
