The Future of Education: Programmed or Programmable

Audrey Watters nails it in this transcript of a talk at Pepperdine.

Key quotes, 'The readable, writable, programmable Web is so significant because, in part, it allows us to break from programmed instruction. That is, we needn’t all simply be on the receiving end of some computer-mediated instruction, some teacher-engineering. We can construct and create and connect for ourselves.'

'One of the most powerful things that you can do on the Web is to be a node in a network of learners...'

"Do we want programmed instruction? Do we want teaching machines? Do we want videotaped lectures? Do we want content delivery systems? Or do we want education that is more student-centered, more networked-focused. Are we ready to move beyond “content” and even beyond “competencies”?'
