New Learning

Commentary by Stephen Downes

A recent post describes "8 Ideas That Will Permanently Break Education As We Know It," by Terry Heick in TeachThought. Sheila Stewart addresses one of these points, the idea that 'parents are the sleeping giants' in education. "Hopefully parents can also work with teachers, principals and policymakers," she writes, rather than "redirecting anger." I address the rest. It's a good overview of the ways education is changing, but it subtly misses the point item by item. This post is my response to those items, creating an overview of what might be called New Learning.
