03 The read/write web

Original photo by Hummanna.

Some teachers and students reacted against LMS and DRM (there had to be an easier way). There was a growth in awareness of free and open source software. At the same time free Internet publishing tools stimulated massive growth in content creativity around the world, made possible by the success of the Creative Commons. A truly read and write net was possible.

All of this, and many other things, helped to generate wide scale questioning of the way we were doing things in online education, while the rest of the world turned into rabid creators of their own learning!

    I loved the photo! This is so much how I think of eLearning. it is the way of the future and the only way the digital divide will get smaller and the oppressed will become free!

    I hadn't thought of it as a possible remidy for digital devides.. I guess it could be to some extent - for those who have realistic access to a networked device that is.

    Hi Leigh, warm greetings from Manila. You have a very wonderful image on 21st century learning. Can I use your image in my video application for Google Teacher Academy in Manila this October 2014? I hope you won't mind. I'll share with you the final video when it's done. Thanks and have a great day!
