Lord Puttnam….

January 30, 2010

Well done to NTU for organising a very interesting evening this week with guest Lord Puttnham.

This was one of their distinguished lecture series events and it didn’t disappoint. The talk was entitled ‘New ways of Learning in a Digital Age’ and for a man in his sixties Puttnham has a very good grasp of the issues. He painted a very exciting picture of the future but this came with a serious health warning. If we don’t get it right with young people today – we can expect chaos by the end of this century! A frightening thought but one even i could understand. Never more than now has the adage ‘Education, Education, Education’ been so relevant as the world of learning is changing so dramatically.

Puttnham has produced a short film to get his point over – view it here http://www.wearethepeoplemovie.com/ nige
