New Zealand book and author star in Mexican television program
When Auckland author and publisher Gordon Dryden released his new book on education last year, none of New Zealand’s television channels thought it worth a mention or an interview.
But even before the Spanish-language version is launched in Latin America this year, Dryden, his book and views on the future of learning and schooling in a multimedia world, have featured for a full half-hour in a network TV current affairs show, and in several other shorter TV programs.
The 30-minute program, with interviewer Sergio Sarmiento—in English (except for a brief Spanish introduction), but with Spanish subtitles—is now on the Mexican network’s website:http://www.tvazteca.com/barradeopinion/win_videos/video-internas-la-entrevista.php?id=778
The book is UNLIMITED: The new learning revolution and the seven keys to unlock it, by Gordon Dryden and Jeannette Vos, published internationally by Dryden’s company, The Learning Web, and its introduction is available free at http://www.thelearningweb.net/
