New ebook: Learning / Work Turning work and lifelong learning inside out
In this book, which can be downloaded for free, 34 leading scholars from 10 countries challenge established understandings of lifelong learning and work, with several arguing that ‘work’ and ‘lifelong learning’ need to be ‘turned inside out’ through a rigorous critique of underlying power relations and practices that shape learning/work possibilities. In various ways, all the chapters are infused with imaginings of alternative futures that prioritise social justice and sustainability for the majority.
Learning/Work will appeal to all those who are grappling to understand and implement learning/work critically within demanding times.
Internet2 and School Libraries: The Time Is Now (More Than Ever)
Does the word Internet2 conjure images of a mythical realm off-limits to the masses of web-surfing plebeians? A forbidding place where computer engineers and the academic research elite speak in esoteric computer programming dialects and move terabytes of data through big pipes at the speed of light? At Horace Mann Elementary School in West Allis, Wis., Internet2 is helping transform the school library into the heart of digitally enabled innovation and learning. So what is the real Internet2, and why does it matter to K-12 schools and libraries? James Werle and Louis Fox have the answers!
