This podcast features a recorded discussion with Dr. Andrew Wertheimer and Jessamyn West at the conclusion of the 2006 Hawaii Library Association’s annual conference. Our topic was the ways in which learners should, perhaps in the spirit of Neil Postman, continually think critically about new technologies touted as the next great trend for libraries and schools.
