When I first saw the diagram I thought it was about the use of open educational resources (OERs). Then I thought it was about Bloom's taxonomy. In the end, it's a little of both, as it outlines a framework (specifically, the Rigor and Relevance Framework) for learning and learning technology. I wish it could go beyond seeing learning resources as content to be learned. Even at the highest level ('adaptation') we're seeing nothing more than mash-ups, broadcasting and commenting. But what ar they doing? Remembering the content is irrelevant; building capacity is everything. That's where the learning really happens.
