Commentary by Stephen Downes

Readers are probably familiar with the distinction I've drawn between personal and personalized learning. This proposal draws a distinction along very much the same lines, as follows:

  • User Interface - the user must fit to the machine
  • Surveillance Interface (personalization) - fitted to the individual
  • Human Interface (personal) - fits to the individual

As the author writes, "We each have our own specific digital, numerical, information and visual literacy. We may have disabilities, and become disabled as we age. We each still need domain over our unique personal data, created in part by our unique interactions with our unique environs, and the facility to make sense of it to help in some way make sense of our unique lives. And many of us relish the opportunity to do that without intermediation, with unfettered personal agency, and appreciate from a societal point of view others having similar facility."

This isn't only about learning. It's about a lot more than that. It's about who we are, and what kind of society we want. Blog. Via Cooperating Systems.
