Commentary by Stephen Downes

Interesting thoughts on different types of learning, from Harold Jarche. "In his posting yesterday," writes Jane Hart, "he now refers to learners as being Dependent, Independent and Interdependent." Well, I would define 'group directed learning' as a type of co-dependent learning, hardly removed from dependent learning, while other forms of organizational learning can continue to be 'interdependent'. In other words, being dependent as a group isn't much of an improvement over being dependent as an individual, while being independent is possibly only if you're no longer in a group. Total: 177
