“We are proud to be hosting this workshop. When you work with information you work with concepts. We live in a world where there is just such a variety of ways to conceptualize the world and the way we think about the world. Media & Information Literacy is therefore becoming more and more important.
Who of you are on Facebook? Who of you are on Twitter? I am on Twitter, but I am disguised as the Faculty of Education. The way in which information has disseminated today is just crucial. My sons on any given day or any given moment know more about the world than I do. They just have a new way of grasping information.
Strategies such as this one is important because we don’t only work here at Groenkloof, we work in a global world. We work in and for the world. So from my side, welcome and enjoy!”
