The Third Wave: the Next Generation of Distributed Learning Technology

[] [All Presentations] []
Canadan Network for Innovation in Education, Vancouver, British Columbia, CNIE.
Stephen Downes argues that we are entering a new generation of distributed web technologies that will change how we view the development and delivery of online learning. In a talk that blends some of the underlying themes from artificial intelligence, blockchain and cloud technologies Downes builds on his previous work developing network-based MOOCs to describe new types of content-addressable learning resources, new activity-driven models of assessment, consensus-based communities, and a model of learning based on identity, voice and opportunity.
