elearnspace › Remaking education in the image of our desires
Whose desires? Not mine. But when Siemens speaks, I listen, and I admire the moderate tone he takes in his comments on entrepreneurial reform of ed. But I wonder if the money boys need a public whacking, as in a comment by Lisa Lane: "So it shouldn’t be surprising that teachers and students are not the focus here – they are the obstacles to creating the quality product. Besides, after over a century of public education, surely they had their chance."

And, by the way, entrepreneurs don't have a pedagogy. They are entrepreneurs, not teachers.
