The Students Own Education

Stephen Downes, Open University, Jun 19, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Video from my talk at the Open University in Milton Keynes, England, is now available; this is the link (I'll provide an audio MP3 file as soon as I can). You can view the slides right on the video, which uses a nifty two-screen display, or you can download the slides and follow along that way. Or, if you don't want to listen to two hours of audio and video, you can read Tony Hirst's excellent summary notes. From the abstract: "Just as students are finding alternative sources of content and community, students are also in the process of defining their own learning environment, one that transcends institutional boundaries. The concept of the personal learning environment, already in discussion and development, will not merely transform learning, it will tranfer ownership of that learning."
