Life in 2015

As we try to help our students and teachers understand the importance of information literacy, it’s often a difficult task to visual the future.

Robin Sloan and Matt Thompson have created a history of media video from 2015. It begins in the late 1980’s as the internet as a public media begins. It proposes some interesting possiblities about the future including the demise of the New York Times to become a print only form for the elite and elderly. David Warlick used the 2014 version for a recent presentation. Viewing this will hopefully raise a number of questions, concerns and meaningful dialouge about the changing nature of information.
