UBC Alumni Book Club – INTERESTING!

While I haven’t read the book, it has a fear monger feel to it.  Check the facilitators bio, he is giving Pro-D seminars on this book!!!  Am I the only one bothered by this one-sided labeling?

I would be interested in reading the book to see what the author uses to back up his statements…In the bio, it’s unclear whether Cook is doing the pro-d to support the author’s thesis or deny it….

Speaking of good books, I just picked up Googlepedia and it’s a thick QUE book. Lots of interesting ideas for course work in there.

Hi ETEC522,

One more excellent read is “growing up digital” by Don Tapscott (2009). About 10 years ago, he wrote Grown up Digital. It is the total opposite of what Bauderlein has to say in his book called The Dumbest Generation. Interesting compare/contrast.
