K-12 faculty and librarians are invited to join us for this year's ORIAS summer institute - a program of lectures, discussion and resource review on the theme of technology in world history. July 23-25, 2012 at University of California Berkeley. Free for all educators - space is limited. One semester credit through U. C. Extension available for a fee. An agenda and applications are available online.
Some framing questions for the program are: How have societies historically viewed the role of information technology from cunneiform tablets to social media? Why did technological innovations happen in one place and not another? What were the conditions necessary for innovations in industrial and military technology and what were the social consequences? What is the role of technology in shaping a globalized world?
