It's New! It's New!

Commentary by Stephen Downes

George Siemens takes a stab at defining 21st century learning (agreeing with Dave Cormier that it's not limited to the 21st century). The skills include technical competence, experimentation, autonomy, creation, play, and capacity for complexity. He adds, "the pendulum-thinking mindset that is evident in Robinson's view is damaging in the long term. If a view of educational reform is defined by the current reality that it is reacting against, rather than a holistic model of what it will produce in the future, then we're playing a game of short-term gains, planting in our revolution the seeds for the next revolution that will push back against gains that we make now." I agree.
