Hedrick Smith, author of “Who Stole the American Dream”, October 24, 11:00am and 12:30pm:
Hedrick Smith’s Who Stole the American Dream? Was an eye-opening account of how, over the past four decades, the American Dream has been dismantled and we became two Americas. Smith documents the transfer of $6 trillion in middle-class wealth from home-owners to banks even before the housing boom went bust, and how the U.S. policy tilt favoring the rich is stunting America’s economic growth. Smith reveals how pivotal laws and policies were altered while the public wasn’t looking, how Congress often ignores public opinion, why moderate politicians got shoved to the sidelines, and how Wall Street often wins politically by hiring over 1,400 former government officials as lobbyists. Smith offers ideas for restoring America’s great promise and reclaiming the American Dream. Website: http://hedricksmith.com/

Teaching Naked: How Moving Technology Out of Your College Classroom Will Improve Student Learning On October 17, 2013, Dr. José Bowen presented this workshop at Keene State College. He started the workshop with an overview of what Clayton Christensen describes as disruptive innovation, when a seemingly “unattractive or inconsequential to industry” innovation eventually redefines the industry. Think about film cameras, online banking or even the post office. In the case of education, the disruption is the fact that “knowledge” is no longer confined to libraries and universities. Knowledge and information can now be found online any time you want it. And more particularly, knowledge via courses can be free in the case of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) as modeled at some of the most prestigious universities such as Harvard, MIT and Stanford.
