Hi Dave, This is an interesting list.
Particularly #7 – Free WORKING LMS for learning vis-a-vis #4 – US government invests in Analytics
If we imagine a world where all human knowledge will be accessible to Everyone, Anywhere and Instantly:
– what would it mean to “educate” someone?
– how would we accredit knowledge/mastery of a domain?
It will force us to question many more such fundamental questions.
Currently, so much of the accreditation process relies on testing on your ability to recall. We should actively move towards the process that tests your ability to synthesize, hypothesize, verify assertions. Essentially make thinks. I advocate project based learning and evaluation.
