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…..
