Knowledge, Learning, Community
Readers of this newsletter will find the statements and themes in this article very very familiar. The authors note how new technology is changing the shape of knowledge, from a Cartesian view of knowledge as object and pedagogy as knowledge transfer, to a perspective of knowledge as socially constructed. This necessitates a change in what we mean by learning, from 'learning about' facts and data, to 'learning to be' the sort of person who, say, does physics. They look at immersive environments a bit before looking at the cycle of content creation, use and remix. The article is nicely written with nifty diagrams.
