The New Era of Learning
The direction in which learning is going: personalized, self-directed, grounded in the real world, and blurring the lines between age groups, teachers/students, formal/informal, etc. It taps into people's instincts and desires for play, creativity and meaning. I'm hoping to eventually incorporate this content into a robust web site that will serve as a compendium on this topic.

Steve Hargadon: A "Tail" of Two Ed Tech Agendas

Steve Hargadon: A "Tail" of Two Ed Tech Agendas | The New Era of Learning | Scoop.it
Luba Vangelova's insight:

Very interesting and insightful piece about mass market vs. customization models, and the implications for education. "The head is about scaling and scope, and success is more of the same. The tail is very horizontal, as it is about as breadth and depth, and success in the tail is differentiation, diversity, and choice. The head requires hierarchy, corporate decision-making, and control. The tail requires networking, an entrepreneurial ecosystem, and freedom. The head is about money, by which approval is conferred. The tail is about passion, and approval is less about the financial and often more about relationships and fulfillment. The head and the tail are actually very different economic models, and it turns out they may also be a powerful way to differentiate two different ed tech reform models."
