EDUPUNK: It was pure in my heart!

Jim Groom, bavatuesdays, Dec 12, 2015
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I'm not sure how seriously you should take this mockumentary, but it's worth thinking back to a time not even a decade ago when Facebook was young, when Twitter was a startup, and when anything beyond staid learning objects and management systems was punk. It was created by Alan Levine - he writes about it here - "this silly idea in my head a few weeks ago that would not go away" - for a session in Guadalajara (which explains the mixture of Spanish and English). "Fact is," writes Groom, "it’s a bit hard for me to mock EDUPUNK because while I always found it playful, it was never ironic for me. The creative joy of critiquing and refusing a system should not be underestimated."See also: “The Internet is the most basic form of the punk rock revolution.”
