In-canoe/online learning!

July 27, 2010

Today I taught the beginning of my class, while paddling my canoe on the lake. The students were at home as usual, and we were videoconferencing… almost as usual. Not only did it work flawlessly from the technical standpoint, it was a way to initiate a reflection on mobile-learning if you wish, but mostly on the concept of learning – as it is now totally separate from the confines of the classroom, the school, and even the teacher. Learning, as a cognitive process, is also now an accepted social activity that is totally breaking free of systems and institutions. All we have to do as educators, is to recognise this and that as learners, we can participate in this now global party!
