For November 15, 2011: In a recent workshop given by Kathy Orr , library media specialist from Olentangy Liberty High School in Ohio, she discusses "filter bubbles" and how they affect searching on the Internet. To learn more about this fascinating concept, watch the video Eli Pariser: Beware online "filter bubbles."
