Emerging Technologies for Learning

Various authors, BECTA, Mar 23, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

My essay Learning networks in practice has been published in Volume 2 of Becta's Emerging technologies for learning. here's how they summarize my paper: "Stephen Downes (NRC) explains network theory, which puts the network at the heart of learning. Learning networks prioritise learning in communities, content creation and context based learning. He explores the emerging concept of the Personalised Learning Environment (PLE), a loose collection of tools, services, people and resources, as a way of harnessing the power of the network. This approach would promote autonomy, encourage diversity, enable interaction and support openness." See also essays by Lee Bryant, Jo Twist, Marc Prensky, Keri Facer, Tim Dumbleton, and David Ley.
