A Bad Start to Lifelong Learning?

Jeff Cobb, Mission to Learn, Jan 14, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The diagram, above, of engagement in school through the years is a depiction of failure - not failure of students, but failure of the system. Jeff Cobb comments, "As the writer of the Gallup blog post on the poll argues, you would hope these numbers would be exactly the opposite – that students would become more engaged as they go through school." I wonder what a similar diagram would look like, one documenting social engagement with society at large through online means. I suspect that it would bust the myth that in-person is more engaging and online is less. My own experience, at least, has been the opposite.
