If Freire Made a MOOC: Open Education as Resistance - Hybrid Pedagogy

If Freire Made a MOOC: Open Education as Resistance - Hybrid Pedagogy | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Openness can function as a form of resistance both within and outside the walls of institutions. But open education is no panacea.

Via Ove Christensen
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

It is wonderful to speculate. I suspect, much like his colleague Ivan Illlich, Freire would have been pragmatic in his use of digital technology.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

"I think it takes a special kind of high schooler to take a MOOC." I think that is important. It does not mean how we use digital technology cannot be modified to meet learning needs but it should be a complex conversation.

I agree Ivon. I have only suggested this to high school students who are considering or approaching University study, to get a taste of Uni Study life.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

The article raises some excellent points. We need to consider teaching and facilitating are not the same. MOOC's will have a role in education. The question is what that might look like?
