Stephen Downes

Knowledge, Learning, Community
Here's a good statement of what that sentence means, from Karen Stephensen: "Experience has long been considered the best teacher of knowledge. Since we cannot experience everything, other people's experiences, and hence other people, become the surrogate for knowledge. 'store my knowledge in my friends' is an axiom for collecting knowledge through collecting people." Interesting tie-in to video of progressive education from the 40s.

Paul Reid also links to Australia's new Education Revolution website and comments, "Rudd is right. Empowering students with access to their own 'digital pencil' and the connectivism it brings is a good start, and will, with trust and time, help them form an aptitude for being creative, critical thinkers - hopefully with inquiring minds to boot."
