Keynote Title: “Social Media, Co-learning, and Peeragogy”Howard Rheingold, author of recent books including Net Smart and Smart Mobs, editor of best seller The Millennium Whole Earth Catalog, takes his audiences on real-time, real-life, and uncensored glimpse of the new cultures and societies emerging online and on the street. His passion is helping others to understand the questions they need to be asking themselves about their businesses, personal lives, political freedoms and social values.
Having been on the Web before the Web, Rheingold was the founding Executive Editor of HotWired, the pioneering online publication launched by Wired magazine. Earlier, his involvement with the WELL led to coining the term “virtual community” and the book The Virtual Community.
Rheingold has taught at UC Berkeley and Stanford University. He was a non-resident Fellow at the Annenberg Center for Communication, and a visiting professor at De Montfort University, UK, which awarded him an honorary Doctorate of Technology degree. He delivered the invited Regents Lecture for University of California, Berkeley.
