Thing 11: Videoconferencing

Svitlana, the Head of Dnepropetrovsk Information Resource Center "Window on America", has the unique opportunity to participate in WebChat: 5 Myths About the "Information Age" (CO.NX webchat, hosted at the U.S. Embassy in Rome, Italy), featuring Robert Darnton, Director of the University Library at Harvard, and the author of the "The Case for Books: Past, Present and Future".

A lot of interesting questions were in focus of discussion from various parts of the world. All of them are connected with the topic "Information Age". Here you can look them through:

IRC El Salvador: Isn't the ''digital age'' (with websites and technologies disappearing all the time..) a threat to preserving information for the future generations?...What can be done??

Vinnytsia Window on America: Nice to have such an opportunity to communicate.  Is there a difference in the way the brain takes in or absorbs information when it is presented electronically versus on paper? Does the reading experience change, from retention to comprehension, depending on the medium?

IRC Rio: Can we consider the social media a part of the information age?

I've taken an active part in this activity and have got detailed answer my question:

WOA Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine: Are you happy to be living in the ‘Information Age’?

Now I am a fan of the CO.NX Facebook page. I logged in to my Facebook account in order to Like” the page.  Now I know   when new webchats are coming up.
