You Are Replaceable

David Wiley, iterating toward openness, Jul 17, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

David Wiley observes that the point of a what works data base is that they believe "'well-designed and well-implemented randomized controlled trials discover methods that "work." For everyone. Period. That's the entire point of having a 'trusted source of scientific evidence for what works in education'." The problem with this view - and I certainly agree with Wiley here - is that is assumes "All "individual differences" are meaningless. There is nothing special or unique about you. You are a clone." Which is exactly the wrong way to think about humans.
