Over the past two decades, the way we learn has changed dramatically. We have new sources of information and new ways to exchange and to interact with information. But our schools and the way we teach have remained largely the same for years, even centuries. What happens to traditional educational institutions when learning also takes place on a vast range of Internet sites, from Pokemon Web pages to Wikipedia? In The Future of Thinking: Learning Institutions in a Digital Age, Cathy N. Davidson and David Theo Goldberg investigate how traditional learning institutions can become as innovative, flexible, robust, and collaborative as the best social networking sites.
