21st-Century Learning – The Garibaldi Panorama

Besides the social media applications and platforms which we all agree are changing our culture and society and the way we learn, we mustn’t forget that the dizzying pace of technology development is also adding a new dimension to the way we communicate and interact.

Take a look at the Brown University Library research project below, on a panorama by Garibaldi (an Italian military and political figure), which uses the Microsoft’s Surface technology to allow users to have  interactive access to the artifact virtually. Without doubt, technologies like this is a great way to help preserve our heritage.

But more importantly, it is already changing the way we teach, learn, and research in the 21st century.
