  14. 14. The Education Bubble?Friday, March 16, 2012
  15. 15. Peter Thiel - unCollege “If Harvard were really the best education, if it makes that much of a difference, why not franchise it so more people can attend? Why not create 100 Harvard affiliates?” ... “It’s something about the scarcity and the status. In education your value depends on other people failing.” Peter Thiel: We’re in a Bubble and It’s Not the Internet. It’s Higher Education. Sarah Lacy,  TechCrunch, April 10, 2011: http://techcrunch.com/2011/04/10/peter-thiel-were-in-a-bubble-and-its-not-the-internet-its-higher-education/Friday, March 16, 2012
  16. 16. Quality? Arum & Roska: 45% of students showed “no significant improvement” over one year of study (freshmen in fall 2005 through spring 2007). 36% showed no improvement after the whole 4 years of college “education”. “American higher education is characterized by limited or no learning for a large proportion of students.” “Your So-Called Education”, The New York Times May 14, 2011; http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/15/opinion/15arum.html?_r=3 “Large numbers of the students were making their way through college with minimal exposure to rigorous coursework, only a modest investment of effort and little or no meaningful improvement in skills like writing and reasoning. In a typical semester, for instance, 32 percent of the students did not take a single course with more than 40 pages of reading per week, and 50 percent did not take any course requiring more than 20 pages of writing over the semester. The average student spent only about 12 to 13 hours per week studying — about half the time a full-time college student in 1960 spent studying.”Friday, March 16, 2012

  34. 34. Myth ContentFriday, March 16, 2012
  35. 35. Content & LMS “Blackboard is itself an embodiment of the university culture that Neary and Winn rightly find so troubling: students cycle through a system that structurally, aesthetically and rhetorically reinforces the notions that education is consumption, the faculty member is a content provider, the classroom is hierarchical, and learning is closed” Luke Waltzer, On EdTech and the Digital Humanities;  http://lukewaltzer.com/on-edtech-and-the-digital-humanities Neary, Mike and Winn, Joss (2009) The student as producer: reinventing the student experience in higher education. In: The future of higher education: policy, pedagogy and the student experience.

  41. 41. Death of the Book Ceci tuera cela (via Eco & McLuhan) Hugos Hunchback of Notre Dame, Frollo, comparing a book with his old cathedral, says: "Ceci tuera cela" (The book will kill the cathedral, the alphabet will kill images). McLuhan, comparing a Manhattan discotheque to the Gutenberg Galaxy, said "Ceci tuera cela." Nunberg, G. (1997) The Future of the Book. Berkeley; University of California Press. Eco’s afterword is available online at http:// www.themodernword.com/eco/eco_future_of_book.html.Friday, March 16, 2012
  42. 42. Death of an Industry? it makes increasingly less sense even to talk about a publishing industry, because the core problem publishing solves - the incredible difficulty, complexity, and expense of making something available to the public - has stopped being a problem. --Clay Shirky Clay Shirky’s Blog, 13 March 2009: Newspapers and Thinking the Unthinkable;  http://www.shirky.com/weblog/ 2009/03/newspapers-and-thinking-the-unthinkableFriday, March 16, 2012
