What Is Weighing Down Learning?

Harold Jarche, Weblog, May 23, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This post is worth visiting for the diagram alone of the factors that are "weighing down" educational change. I would want to add the word 'outcomes' to 'Bureaucratic Weight'. But as for the question of systemic change, there remains this question: change to what? I have my own views as to where education should go, but my views are by no means consensus - nor either is there any view that even approaches consensus. It's not just the things weighing education down, but also, the different people pulling in different directions: industry pulling one way, religious and spiritual organizations pulling another way, activists pulling yet another way - everybody, it seems, has a stake in the education system, with the result that no philosophy can ever gain the upper hand.
