On Pandora and other box openers

PandoraRevised I am very grateful to Bob Sprankle for podcasting my BLC presentation on information fluency and Web 2.0 tools.  The slides that illustrate my points are also available on SlideShare.  My big point here is that opening boxes is critical to learning.  These boxes represent intellectual and academic freedom issues.  As we open boxes [...]
