Knowledge, Learning, Community
Good discussion of the whole argument around publishing student work. "At some point we have to get over our fear of letting students publish!" says Alan November. And he is, of course, right. "The best learning happens when you are creating as part of a communities, and it is important to help students cultivate creative communities. Educators and learners need to realize that copying is not cheating (when credited). It's an honor to take someone's work and extend it (as I've done with this piece of writing). Schools need to move from helping students being passive users of technology to becoming active shapers. It's not just about trying what others have done, it's about making your own."
