Smartboard intro - basics that should have worked

Find someone you haven’t worked with in class before and compare your ideas from the readings. You can use the following if you need to.
  • Is Mander right about a ‘global conspiracy’ by corporations to run the earth? Does he over-glamourize indigenous cultures or are we not paying enough attention to them?
  • Do you speak another language? Are there ideas or expressions that do not translate well? Does language limit how we think?
  • Is Postman right that tech advantages are never distributed equally?

Tweet your best thoughts to #umtandt
