Year of Future Learning - an Experiment

Martin Weller, The Ed Techie, Jan 27, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Martin Weller emailed a number of people connected with the Connectivism course and related initiatives with this proposal. "Here is what I have in mind: A loosely coupled, distributed research 'project'. We declare 09 the 'year of future learning' (#YOFL or #FLY - take your pick)... This is a means of aggregating existing resources and events by tagging them - in the Weinberger sense, we may as well put our leaves on as many branches as possible, so for instance there will be sessions at Northern Voice and Alt-C which could be made part of the YOFL simply by adding the tag." For my own part, I already aggregate resources and post the results every day. It's a good practice, which I encourage. There's no substitute for hard work, which this is. But I don't think it needs a special tag.
