I am a Learning Object – Empowerment through each other

Conversation with Vicki Marchant around the concept of the person as a learning object and the systemisation of learning, top down management that enables rather than controls, a bottom up ‘People Learning Management System’ that aggregates people to come together around a particular subject, task, problem…when needed.
I’m lucky enough to be going to the ILTA Edtech conference in Dublin! this week. Looking forward to Don Dron’s discussion on Designing the undesignable around the systemisation of social software where he’ll be presenting on:
‘A range of technical, procedural and pedagogical ways of influencing, rather than designing, learning ecologies are provided, so that the tensions between top-down and the bottom-up control may be resolved and social software can play a significant and integral role in e-learning.’
Hopefully this will provide me with a better understanding of how to address the issues, the cultural shift which is very much needed to make bottom up enabling culture work…
