I Am a Deviant Tool User. You?

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. I Am a Deviant Tool User. You?
More reaction to Gary Stager's take-down of Web 2.0 proponents, most of it not as nice as I was yesterday. Guhlin wonders, "Is Gary's call for us to wake up and do more than rally around the tools REALLY a call to submit to the accepted culture of schools, or one more in line with his point of view?" That was my interpretation, though people like Tom Hoffman suggest that Stager isn't so "bound to traditional schooling." Maybe not, but if the heart of his argument is that the challenge is "to frame the presentation of these tools to teachers in the best thinking about pedagogy," then it seems pretty 'traditional schooling' to me. More: Dave Warlick asks, Web 2.0 is like Logo? James Farmer writes a screamer of a criticism, including a set of (what I now dub) loljabs characterizing Stager's argument. Dean Shareski comments, "personal freedom and empowerment doesn't have to involve schools." Ewan McIntosh wonders why Stager can't find any research when he's read and summarized more than 100 research reports. More...

Les livrets de compétences : nouveaux outils pour l'évaluation des acquis

Accueil - Vie PubliquePourquoi évaluer les acquis des élèves ? Qu'en est-il de l'évaluation des compétences ? Ce sont les questions auxquelles tente de répondre ce rapport, qui s'appuie sur la loi d'orientation et de programme pour l'avenir de l'Ecole du 23 avril 2005, loi qui institue un socle commun de connaissances et de compétences et donne des prescriptions institutionnelles relatives à l'évaluation des élèves.

PLEs Are Power Tools

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. PLEs Are Power Tools
A couple of nice posts from Tom Haskins. In the first, he suggests that "PLE's are power tools. They empower the powerless to break out of their boxes. PLE's invites self-directed learning." Then, in the second, he draws a distinction between 'fortunate' and 'unfortunate' learners, drawn roughly along the level of power, or amount of learning independence, the person has. Depending on our position as a fortunate or unfortunate learner, we will view PLEs differently. More...
