Free Learning

By George Siemens

Stephen Downes….has released a document on Free Learning (.pdf). This paper covers a wide territory of Downes’ work in open education, covering almost a decade. It includes a few classics (to the degree that our field has classics), such as his discussion with Dave Tosh (co-founder of Elgg) on the role of openness in economics or earning a living and numerous encounters with David Wiley. I was surprised, on reading this compilation, how often Stephen writes in response to views of others – he’s much more engaged in the conversation around technology in education than the broadcast model of OLDaily suggests.
