The New Face of Learning
Thought provoking article from Will Richardson who asks what happens to the traditional concepts of classrooms and teaching when we can "go online and learn anything, anywhere, anytime".
The web...once a 'read only' domain, perceived as a place to purely source information is now developing and evolving...a space where we can publish, collaborate, learn and share our voice, thinking, knowledge....where "creating content is almost as easy as consuming it."
A new learning landscape not universally embraced and while students increasingly use these technologies many schools are either blocking them or simply choose to ignore their existence or impact they are having on how students learn.
