The Video Revolution


Chris Anderson, the curator of TED, talks about how we no longer are part of the Gutenberg revolution but a “video” revolution. The world is dramatically changing as we are able to “face to face” with others around the world. Video is catching up with print regarding scaling – dispersal far and wide.

He makes two important points:

1. Online video is an ancient art form. It allows for “pragmatic”, non verbal communication.

2. The future is many to many with video. We are all teachers.

A wonderful talk and one of TED’s best. It has important implications for EnglishCentral – showing the power of using visual means for context and learning. Showing the need for less top down approaches and a world where we all learn, we all “teach”.

Watch – you won’t be disappointed! EnglishCentral is riding his wave…..

    Marcos,     

    I think it might be hard to show the quizzes like the video and as “everything”.  The quizzes can be accessed on each video page for the video http://www.englishcentral.com/watch    Just click “Start Quiz”.
