Digital Media and Learning in a Dangerous Age

As a country and a world we are imperiled by massive inequality and by the interactions of high risk complex systems like global warming, environmental degradation, toxic waste, the global economy, the workings of casino capi-talism, global migrations of people, and ideological, civilizational, and religious wars. Drastic change is on the horizon, in part because we humans, often in the name of greed, have waited too long to deal with too many of our problems. It is time to end business as usual and to drastically rethink the role of digital media and learning in and out of schools. In this talk, Dr. Gee will consider the dangers of business as usual and where we might go and what we might do in the face of transformational change.
