How WE Learn

So from the history of the internet to this refocussing on learning – a great interview from Michael Wesch about harnessing collective intelligence rather than teaching content. He is an advocate of ‘anti-teaching’, seeking too inspire with god questions. Google becomes a tool for testing possibilities. Social media is also about learning possibilities. But don’t get it wrong – it is also about more work! more commitment! more active involvement in collaborative learning. He also raises the use of RFID on a campus, for creating learning opportunities. This I like!!

“We learn more when we are sharing information…”

“How can I get all of their intelligence together to make something really interesting…”

Anti-teaching: Inspiring good questions, not just lecturing and giving them the answers. I heart this!

I’m sharing this with some colleagues and with my students.
