There are many critical thinkers interested in education, particularly since the advent of the internet; distributive learning technologies like Google, Youtube, Facebook and Twitter; and personal computing. This video will resonate with a lot of CPN members and others who work with students, in university and college programmes, and with the challenges of thinking ‘otherwise’ about learning and teaching in physiotherapy, medicine, health care, and elsewhere.
In this video, Gardner Campbell from Baylor University talks about why it is that the widespread availability of the Internet and social media haven’t yet managed to really penetrate the university. We’re not talking here about learning management systems, MOOCs, or new approaches to blended learning, but seriously, radically, significantly different ways that people can now engage with knowledge creation and curation.
