Post-Gutenberg technologies have changed our strategies for cognitive authority. We used to trust publishing houses and certain initials after names. Now, the world looks very different. Student research, student life skills, require a real sense of “how to make sense” of the information flow around them – whether they’re walking through Barnes and Noble, flipping through cable channels, or searching on line. We’ll look at this century’s markers of cognitive authority, and techniques designed to build student skills.
