Learning IS Social. It Just Is.

Bud Hunt, Bud the Teacher, May 13, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Bud Hunt argues that learning is social, something I argued against in Argentina. That is not to say that social phenomena play no role in education - that would be an absurd position - but rather to make the (important, I think) point that learning does not, cannot, reduce to descriptions of social phenomena. Indeed, this is where you run into dangers, where you run into such misconstrued notions as 'learning is alignment' or 'learning is commerce' or 'learning is conformity'.
