It’s worth noting – I’m fascinated by the work of Howard Rheingold. If I could capture just a small portion of his capacity to work with tertiary students I would be thrilled.
I really liked his small posterous ‘mini-course’ on infotention – what a cool way to share information. I need to explore more….
Infotention is a word I came up with to describe a mind-machine combination of brain-powered attention skills and computer-powered information filters. The inside and outside of infotention work best together with a third element ‹ sociality.
Watch the video below – and learn how to manage your own ‘infotention’. Then visit Howard’s Mini-course on Infotention.
Thanks very much Howard for acknowledging that the need for librarians is greater than ever :-)
