I've said it before, and I will say it again. I am SO glad there was no such thing as Facebook or all the other various social media sites when I was growing up.

Yet another debate about the tablet vs laptop approach. I liked the perspective of New York City Schools Chancellor Joel Klein has on the debate. He believes tables are for information acquisition, not for producing.

MOOCs are a Manufactured Consent | Leigh Blackall

I can't take it any more. All this talk about MOOCs (the simple corporate variety), iTunesU, and the glaring and obvious ignorance of robust and sustainable commons-based projects like Wikipedia, Wikibooks and Wikiversity.

I like Leigh's uncompromising style of writing, which helps a lot in driving home his message. In this case, it is that there is an alternative to MOOCs, that it has been around for a while already, and that it is called Wikipedia, Wikiversity, etc. And unlike with MOOCs, copyright issues have been dealt with adequately (CC), no need for teachers/authors to part with their copyrights therefore.

 

If you are not convinced that (neo-liberal) markets necessarily trumps all other solutions to solving problems of needs satisfaction, then read this. And if your are convinced that markets are, then perhaps this piece makes a small dent in your belief. (@pbsloep)
