This podcast is a recording of my first morning session at the Learning 2.0 conference in Shanghai, China, on September 16, 2007. The title of my session was “Inventing The Future: Safely Empowering Learners in the Read/Write Society.” The description of this session in the conference program was: As Dr. Lawrence Lessig has observed, we live in the era of a “new read-only” and a “new read-write” culture. This environment is full of rapid, discontinuous and disruptive change, but the opportunities for empowering people to constructively communicate and share their voices appropriately with the world is unprecedented. We’ll explore how learners of all ages across the world are utilizing media and communication technologies to literally reinvent the future.
