Five Laws of Product Development for Education in the 21st Century

Rob Reynolds, XplanaZine, Feb 13, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Some principles (it's a bit much to call them laws) that sound good but still reflect an 'us delivering to them' mentality. I'd be more interested to know how 'products' (if you will) can empower students to teach themselves. I am sympathetic with the tone Christopher D. Sessums' commentary. Stop thinking in universal principles or laws. "I have found from my own experience (i.e., making lots of mistakes) that attempting to concretize what is naturally fluid and dynamic makes one apear nebbish, or worse, pedantic. I prefer the terms guidelines or reflections; this leaves one open to making changes as required."
