Last evening I spoke with several people about my work centered here. For the past several years GoldenSwamp has been my informal base for advocating that the education of new generations in the 21st century embrace the internet. My recent activities in this cause include:
Blogging on Howard Rheingold’s team at SmartMobs.com
Panelist at Mobile 2.0 in November
Blogging at iCommons.com
Writing a book (to be finished next month), mobile phones and the young generation.
The tabs at the top of this page connect to ideas and background materials. The first tab, What is the Golden Swamp?, explains the name.
Perhaps the most insightful comment in recent weeks that has appeared on the internet about the subject of the too long deferred engagement by education of the richness of the digital world is the prediction here, by Todd Richmond as summarized by Howard Rheingold:
“Resistance is futile,” believes Richmond: although existing educational institutions are not generally embracing a digitally transformed future, “the educational sector will be dragged into the future kicking and screaming by the next perfect storm.”
