  • 'the web is an agreement' ... love that.

    Formalising the informal / higher ed issues / informalising the formal / topography of formality and the monolithic view/other things we have (kids use to learn-communicate!)... VERY interesting distinctions for debate and study. Great topics. I will spread these pitch-memes around :-), specially slides 15 and 16, and different ways of learning-thinking about the educational system.

Social:Learn Introduction Social:Learn Introduction Presentation Transcript

  • Social:Learn Martin Weller
  • Social:Learn assumptions
    • There is a major shift in society and education driven by the possibilities new technologies create for creating and sharing content and for social networking.
    • Higher education, to date, has not really addressed how to engage with these fundamental shifts and their impact on the core business model of higher education.
    • There is educational value in the application of both the technologies seen in web 2.0 and the approaches they embody.
    • The status quo is no longer feasible or advisable
    • Competition in the learner sphere is ever more complex , multi-faceted and fragmented
  •  
  • What principles should it embody?
    • Openness
    • Flexibility
    • Disruptive
    • Perpetual beta
    • Democracy
    • Pedagogy

  • The granularity of education
  • &quot;For decades we've been buying albums. We thought it was for artistic reasons, but it was really because the economics of the physical world required it: Bundling songs into long-playing albums lowered the production, marketing, and distribution costs ... As soon as music went digital, we learned that the natural unit of music is the track.&quot; (Weinberger) <Klmonty http://www.flickr.com/photos/klm_digital_snaps/560648054/>
