Knowledge, Learning, Community

I'm not sure how seriously you should take this mockumentary, but it's worth thinking back to a time not even a decade ago when Facebook was young, when Twitter was a startup, and when anything beyond staid learning objects and management systems was punk. It was created by Alan Levine - he writes about it here - "this silly idea in my head a few weeks ago that would not go away" - for a session in Guadalajara (which explains the mixture of Spanish and English). "Fact is," writes Groom, "it’s a bit hard for me to mock EDUPUNK because while I always found it playful, it was never ironic for me. The creative joy of critiquing and refusing a system should not be underestimated."See also: “The Internet is the most basic form of the punk rock revolution.”
