Regular readers knows that I often refer to The Cluetrain Manifesto. If you haven’t read it yet, take a look at the 95 theses, but I’d suggest that you read the whole book – online or in print. Scott Adams has taken the theses and re-mixed them for education. I’ve re-mixed a bit more, but don’t have the energy (yet) to address all 95:
- Learning is conversation.
- Learners are human beings, not demographic sectors.
- What’s happening to education is also happening among learners. A metaphysical construct called "The School" is the only thing standing between the two.
- To traditional educational institutions, networked conversations may appear confused, may sound confusing. But we, the learners, are organizing faster than they are. We have better tools, more new ideas, no rules to slow us down.
