Inspiration?

On Friday evening McGill professor Darin Barney will give a talk titled “One Nation under Google: Citizenship in the Technological Republic”. Since I can’t be in Montreal for the free lecture, I’ll be tuning in to CKUTRadio McGill, the event sponsor (hopefully they will be broadcasting it live).

One of the reasons I’m interested in web tools in education is the possibility they offer for true engagement in a democratic society.  Prof. Barney will contest the idea that technology leads to enhanced freedom and improved civic engagement.  Should be very interesting.
