Do You Have A World View?

How do we re-wire the systems that we have in order to make our world more global?

In the following TED talk Ethan Zuckerman, blogger and technologist gives a thought provoking talk about how we connect, or in many cases miss connecting with the world view available on the Internet.

The following are a couple of the resources mentioned in his presentation that I found worth a closer look.

  • Global Voices – “…an international community of bloggers who report on blogs and citizen media from around the world.”
  • Oxford Internet Institute – “The Oxford Internet Institute was founded as a department of the University of Oxford in 2001, as an academic centre for the study of the societal implications of the Internet.”

Now that you have listened to Zuckerman’s recommendations and explored a few resources — will you  expand your world view? Will you encourage your students to explore new resources?
