There’s a fine line between the sublime and the ridiculous. Take the following in response to a retweet I made about potentially giving learners Google-like ’20% time’ to pursue their own interests:
My initial response?
Ridiculous. That would never happen!
But perhaps as a vision statement for 2020 that could work.
Which got me thinking:
So what would we need to do to make that reality?
- Mobile phones seen as learning equipment.
- Availability of secure GPS-enabled school environment.
- Learner autonomy.
So actually, an offhand statement can serve as a vision to work towards. It’s good to mix things up sometimes. :-p
