New Tools for Personal Learning

Nov 25, 2009
Lecture presentation delivered to MEFANET 2009 Conference, Brno, Czech Republic, via MVU Videoconference.

In this presentation I describe how new technologies are being designed in order to adapt to a rapidly changing and complex world. In this picture, learning is not a matter of knowledge acquisition and memorization, but rather, personal development in such a way that we become able to navigate and work with this knowledge and content in the same manner, with the same capacities, as the expert. This is a type of learning that is based on the creation of tools that support a mesh network; this network, in turn, supports the conversation and interactions that foster the development of an expert character.
