While digging though a backlog of unread blog posts in Google Reader I stumbled across this video. Last weekend two big topics of the CLMS Technology Conference were online learning and personal learning networks, so the timing of this discovery is quite apropos for me. What are we doing to create learning opportunities for the student described in the video? Is this a realistic model for middle or high school education? What might be the benefits or trade offs? I have my own thoughts, which you can listen to here, but I’m curious what you think. My mind is very formative on this issue at the moment.
