WEB: Connecting is just the Beginning( Visual )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In remote villages in the Amazon Jungle and Andes Mountains, a group of children are about to gain access to computers and the internet for the first time. WEB documents their experience with the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) program, and ponders both the benefits and complications that are arising from our increasing digital interconnectivity. Alongside the poignant and sometimes humorous local stories, WEB includes interviews with leading thinkers on the internet including Foursquare founder Dennis Crowley, Wikipedia's Jimmy Wales, and OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte. The students loved the documentary. I thought the film was very balanced and nuanced in presenting the impact of globalization in rural areas of Latin America. It lined up an impressive array of experts to weigh in on the topic, but the Peruvians featured in the film were unforgettable and contributed the ideas that I think will stay with the students. - Camilla Stevens, Department of Latino and Hispanic Carribean Studies, Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences WEB raises serious and intriguing questions about the benefits - and drawbacks - that technologically-based interconnectivity will bring to heretofore comparatively isolated tribal cultures. Recommended. - Video Librarian A fascinating global odyssey...WEB is both a paean to and critique of burgeoning global media, and extremely entertaining. - The Village Voice
