John Seely Brown Groks Learning

Wow!

Just listened to Steve Hargadon’s interview with John Seely Brown about changes in education.

Steve Hargadon: John Seely Brown on Web 2.0 and the Culture of Learning (School 2.0, Part 6)

Much to mull over. As careful as I am generally, I think I agree with almost everything that was said in this interview.

One broad issue, for many of us, is that we need to convince a lot of people that these ideas are worth considering, even in the current climate. For instance, getting administrators to understand that grade inflation is perhaps less of a problem than curve-fitting grades. Or getting employers to understand that prestigious schools aren’t necessarily where learning takes place.

Ah, well…
