"Students need a reason to learn, and we shouldn’t just assume they will be able to learn something for its own sake." bit.ly/L7JKVH
or.. the brain.. via app to facilitate curiosities.
people dropping out is a good sign.. a sign we are starting to give choice w/no strings attached. we re missing one of the best aspects of moocs/audits/learning even when these vast numbers are screaming back at us.
now .. if we could get away from spending all our time proving things.
that's what tech wants (kelly):
1. get rid of time spent proving. ie: intentional trail via being/doing/connecting aggregated by messiness king.. the web ie: the brain-ish, rather than (or along with if you must) - documenting linear - very questionable- proof/credentials; (see bunker roy-community as curriculum and even as measure - if you must)
2. hasten connecting and grokking and ... being.
this will only exponentiate in a timely fashion (also in a -blowing us away -fashion) if we scale the individual in such an eclectic place as a city, one where people believe they have nothing to prove, that there is never nothing going on.
