What is Rip, Mix, Learn?
It’s a metaphor for the way the digital and real world is evolving and how we use it. It’s having the web your way, and sometimes that’s the fastest of fast information food. All of the traditional information flows from main-stream media, institutional authorities, government, scholarship are affected by the RML notion that the static web of the early 90’s and the one-way web of the early 00’s is now the read/write web and the conversation-web of the present. This has particularly interesting ramifications for education.
I will explore some of these ramifications with specific examples from recent insights in podcasting, electronic journals, blogging and electronic course materials and relate them to directions that I believe legal education is heading.
This presentation is over and I hope that it wasn’t too dense or confusing. I really had to work to get it down to under 50 minnutes. The presentation was recorded and we will post the video here soon. In the meantime, here is a link to the Powerpoints – JohnMayerThursdayPlenaryFINAL.ppt
