Knowledge, Learning, Community

Trent Batson makes a nice point in his response to the recent (and ill-informed) NY Times editorial on online learning: "with open learning, all connected humans have multiple sources of learning.  This is true right now.  But because most learners are not yet adjusted to guiding their own learning, they cannot yet take advantage of the riches of open learning.... This legacy 'one-way' mindset limits awareness of the multiple ways that learning can occur and how new learning designs can be varied and enticing."
