School 2.0 Revisited: What's In A Name?

Christopher D. Sessums, Weblog, Mar 06, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Response to some statements questioning the use of the term 'School 2.0' as an "effort at retrenchment" or an effort to "protect one's own turf". Sessums says he is "more drawn to reforming schools in the guise illustrated by Stephen Heppel's NotSchool or the Sudbury Schools," arguing that "the challenge before is to find a process that allows both order and innovation in individuals and society" because "schooling will most likely continue to be culturally and politically significant in our society." They are intended, he writes, to bring students closer to society and "places where collective consciousness becomes assimilated."
