Inventing the New Boundaries

Dave Warlick, K12 Online Conference, Oct 09, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Dave Warlick's chatty keynote (yet another "[verb]ing the new [noun]" talk) opens the second K12 Online Conference. Warlick is mostly a storyteller, though I confess the long bit from Ender's Game and the discussion of borders and airports didn't really appeal to me. "You have to create your own borders," Warlick says, to create traction to move forward into the future. The main message - that the best thing we can be teaching students today is how to teach themselves - is pretty common nowadays, don't you think? Julie Lindsay summarizes. David Truss comments. Also - I consider the 93 megabyte download required to view the video to be a disgrace, but Doug Belshaw has uploaded it to Google Video.
