Such an inspiration and a very insightful man. We have been stuck in a 'Teacher says so' learning environment for generations and a shift is occuring whereby students are embracing change and using technolgy in a constructivist manner to further their own education, students are embracing change much more readily than teachers who still seem reluctant.

I first discovered John Seely Brown when completing my M.Ed - http://people.ucsc.edu/~gwells/Files/Courses_Folder/ED%20261%20Papers/Situated%20Cognition.pdf. This view on learning rang, and still rings truth as one of the core theories that underpin my beliefs. It is timeless. In an age where learners' contexts are often more deterministic than the classroom, the interdependence of activity, culture and concept is, as you point out so well, a fundamental principle of social constructivism. In the age of technology, as information becomes so available to all, our learning cultures have shifted to one in which the learner is empowered to lead their own learning. And so this model, presented before the age of social technology, still predicts, anticipates, and explains learning.
