Commentary by Stephen Downes

Here's the stuff on the education frteform panel I was on today with Howard Gardner, Alfie Kohn and Gary Stager, hosted by Steve Hargadon:The full Blackboard Collaborate recording is as and a portable .mp3 audio recording is at the Mightybell Discussion and Resource Space. I think that the difference between me an some others on the ed reform panel is that they still view ed reform as a political issue. I think the way to achieve education reform is to go beyond politics & focus on empowering and provision rather than policy and prescription. I wish, though, I had explained that better. Politics is the art of persuading everyone else to think like you. But education ought to be about thinking for yourself.
