Collapsing to Connections

George Siemens, Connectivism, Mar 12, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Oooo - George Siemens makes the leap from connectivism in learning to connective social organization. "What would a world of learning look like if it were based on a granular unit of change – like connections – instead of large impenetrable concept like 'accountability', 'school reform'. How can we structure educational reform in such a manner that anyone can participate?" Right. This is a model of distributed government - a shift from large, powerful, mass-based centralized institutions to government that is small, local and distributed, in which they, and the people that make them up, interact in an open and global communication and decision network (note that 'government as business' and even 'education as business' are the exact opposite of that).
