modern kids

what creates meaning for them?

also: for us?


rebirth as open source, remix, mashups, ..., less gender specific than it used to be, open source as participatory learning platform, write code meant to be read, engagement through additions, grounded discussions on real problems, remix, new kind of reading, creating meaning by integrating imagination with that of author in remix

difficult to open modern physical devices

attending from rather than attending to (Polanyi)

culture of participation, creating meaning by what I produce and others build on, prosumers

from scarcity to abundance

gee - sounds an awful lot like what I often talk about when I talk about snowflake :-)





long tail

there is a niche learning community for anything you are passionate about

stability is no longer our luxury

from stocks to flows

from supply push to demand pull


culture of learning

recreation becomes re-creation

participatory lifelong learning

ultimate sustainability model

brewing perfect storm of opportunity

open participatory learning ecosystem with feedback loops





also helps to improve learning theories

not learning in the abstract but real work

social view of learning

participation is key

understanding is socially constructed

learning in interaction with others and the world

nothing beats study groups, in the physical or virtual world

architecture studio as an example

work in progress is made public

"learning to be" rather than "learning about"



Technology Enabled Active Learing

Technology Enabled Active Learning

marking needs to change if you want students to help one another

Faulkes telescope project

remote access

real experiments

pool and analyze results with master

amateurs (from amare!) are changing astronomy

Decameron web

Brown University

window into practice of scholarship in narrow field


I liked the use of comics to illustrate points

made me think of "reinventing comics",

I liked what I heard (I should: I often say many of the same things), but, frankly, didn't hear anything new

maybe value was more in how he tied it all together
