The brilliant folks at Maya have created this video that explains what information is. The Golden Swamp – the internet – is a new habitat that information has been flooding into for the past couple of decades. We do not understand very well yet the life of information within the swamp. I think a fundamental fact about the internet will turn out to be this: information is a happy camper in the internet because, like the internet, information is a network.
As you will see in the video, confusing information with cups and colors is not recognizing what the stuff really is. The narrator shows how he has to give the information of his color choice for us to know. The internet has vast amounts of information to give – which is a key to the future of learning.
