George Siemens offers one of his better columns this week in the TED blog (of all places). Despite "the 18-month intoxicating hype machine," he writes, "our original vision continues to shape our research and teaching practices: networking individual learners to foster knowledge creation." And as he says, "the complex challenges that society faces can only be met through a learning architecture that emphasizes knowledge generation over knowledge duplication." This is a good column, one that should be widely shared.
