NLII Strategic Plan

Commentary by Stephen Downes

The National Learning Infrastructure Initiative (NLII) maps out a new strategy. Some interesting remarks: "Another challenge is to help ourselves—and our institutions—better understand and respond to the new generation of students entering our campuses. They adopt technologies that are not part of our traditional arsenal (e.g., wikipediae, blogs, IM, social networking sites, etc.) and they use them in ways that are detached from the processes of the academy. We provide little if no constructive context for them to use these technologies to improve learning, and so they use them to amuse themselves." A little patronizing, but at least they're heading in the right direction.
