Community 360 Book of the Month
This month, our Community 360 Podcast Team will focus on Nicholas Carr's bestselling book: The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains. Below is a brief synopsis:
- "Building on the insights of thinkers from Plato to McLuhan, Carr makes a convincing case that every information technology carries an intellectual ethic―a set of assumptions about the nature of knowledge and intelligence. He explains how the printed book served to focus our attention, promoting deep and creative thought. In stark contrast, the Internet encourages the rapid, distracted sampling of small bits of information from many sources. Its ethic is that of the industrialist, an ethic of speed and efficiency, of optimized production and consumption―and now the Net is remaking us in its own image. We are becoming ever more adept at scanning and skimming, but what we are losing is our capacity for concentration, contemplation, and reflection."
The Westlake and Calabasas Barnes and Noble have the entire LVUSD Spring 2019 Series books available. Please check them out exclusively at the LVUSD Community 360 end cap.Thank you to Barnes and Noble for your continued support of our 360 initiatives.
