Learner-Created Learning

Oct 04, 2005

I like the idea of 'learner created learning' as described in this article. I'm less thrilled with the term 'prosumer' - the term, of course, is short for 'producer - consumer' and it is yet again another commodification - like 'human resources' - of people. I am not a producer, I am not a consumer, and I would hope we would teach our students to have a wider vision of who they are and what they can be. Let's call them 'authors' and 'artists' and 'creators'. Via George Siemens.
