Guy Merchant - The future of education
Excellent! :) Recording of a British academic, captured in Hasselt, Belgium and listened to in Oklahoma. I love the internet! I was really please Guy agreed to do this. He's been a tutor on a couple of modules on a course I'm doing and he has a very interesting take on the purpose(s) of education and learning. Feel a bit guilty as I sprang the last question on him at the last minute but he didn't seem to mind. I agree with you that there should be many approaches. Politically in the UK at the moment there are a few powerful people with a very singular view of what education should be and it seems to reflect the education they had 30 years ago. I think they view a pluralistic approach as synonymous with unacceptable risk and relinquishing control. As far as Guy's view goes, I think I see it as a container for a range of educational experiences and approaches. I quite like his idea that we are all apprentices in some things and that this process starts when we are very young. My daughter is 6 and already calls herself as a scientist, not just someone who learns about science.
I really enjoyed listening to this from here in Oklahoma City, USA. :-) I agree with Guy that we need more people creatively thinking outside the box about what this new, blended educational experience can and should look like. I am wondering if that vision will be the same for all learners, however? I think one of the traps we tend to get into with education and "school" is thinking in monolithic terms. I think we probably need to be visualizing multiple models and possibilities, because 1 size has never "fitted all" and shouldn't in the future.

Don't Be Cruel
People n the UK who are old enough to remember Elvis will undoubtedly remember the episode of his long hair being cut off by the US army. It was a VERY big deal at the time. LOL
Is this known in the UK too ? thanks for explaining it all about Elvis's haircut!
I bought an Acer C720 chrome book and I'm a happy kitty.
@Alabamiemamie...there is no "start" menu on a chromebook. just a few icons of chrome (to open browser) gmail, google search page, google docs and youtubeand my apps. I haven't fully played around with it. I have played with windows 8. it reminds me of a windows smartphone. it's somewhat easy only after you've played around with it a while. yeah i had XP (still do) i'll probably go down to my hook-up and get a "used" tower for $75-150. This chromebook runs just that..everything google with chrome as the browser. Not bad. Like i said it really serves it's purpose. I'm very satisfied with it. thanks for the comment :)
