Steve Hargadon: Escaping the Education Matrix

Steve Hargadon: Escaping the Education Matrix | Formallising Informal Learning | Scoop.it
“People are almost in this Matrix-like existence,” says education thought-leader Steve Hargadon. “They don’t question schooling. How do you tell a story that opens the door to rethinking what people have believed for decades?

 

Hargadon thinks one way change agents get tripped up is by promoting a particular model, rather than a process by which people can develop (or adopt) models that best fit their needs. He considers deep, meaningful conversations a useful starting point for people to use to shape the future, and to that end, he’s planning to host a series of national conversations in 2014 that probe the deeper questions around education and can serve as models for conversations people initiative in their own communities.

But how managable is it? How can each parent / or even the six-year old his/herself be expected to closely design and implement an individual learning narrative?

 

And how desirable is it to have to allow each individual to build up radically different banks of knowledge and skills? How would a society that polarized function?

Eoin McDonnell's insight:

Nice succinct review of what Tin Can might be able to do. Good questions too - especially about the LRS.

 

What I'm curious about (and I hope this question doesn't reveal my technical ignorance) is how the data is gathered at all. Brower extensions?

Eoin McDonnell's insight:
Good article but I'm perplexed that one is talking about the longevity of badges. Most posts about that talk about the VLE itself and don't touch off storing them in the Backpack.
