Trend (#1): Transforming Education

Must read book:
Thomas, Douglas and John Seely Brown.  A New Culture of Learning: Cultivating the Imagination for a World of Constant Change.  New York: CreateSpace, 2011.
Concerned about the schools and teachers?  This book provides some exciting (and positive!) views on effective ways to reach and motivate our young learners.  It merges technologies and interactive learning approaches for some exciting possibilities.    

In some ways, this book parallels the discussion in the library profession about information fluency and the need for users to own the set of skills and attitudes they need to navigate the avalanche of information at their fingertips.
