Learning, Freedom and the Web

Anya Kamenetz, Website, Jan 16, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

So Anya Kamenetz has another book out. This one is called Learning, Freedom and the Web, and it is available by PDF download. It was sponsored by the MacArthur Foundation and the Mozilla Foundation and is basically a write-up of a conference featuring selected participants from the charitable-OER community. It's not as much a book about free learning (or even learning at all) as much as it is a book about Mozilla's thoughts about learning, Cathy Davidson, a few other people (Ismael Peña-López, Jack Martin, Carolina Botero). David Wiley and Joi Ito are introduced to give the Creative Commons perspective. If we understand that this is a snapshot of a certain perspective (the foundation - Creative Commons - P2PU nexus) then it's a very good book. It is not, and should not be construed to be, a broadbased look at learning, freedom and the web.
