The crux of Will’s argument revolves around allowing students to use everyone and everything at their disposal to find passion in learning. He is also doing a great job of showing all of the knowledge and skills that are developed through students being freed to learn through what they are passionate about.
Will just asked a great question, “Do our kids really need everything we put in their heads?” Are we creating learners or the learned? **Since I am writing in real-time, this post may seem a bit jagged. Will has moved onto a discussion about real ways to change our scope and vision of education in the classroom. Great look at how the Web has created a world of abundance and has truly changed the access to information.
I will add more to the post later when I have time to sit and reflect with Garth.
