The future is open

In his presentation on the future of education (above), Ed tech blogger Martin Weller describes his vision.

Among the trends he notes are the increasing social, open, and informal aspects of education. Weller posed the question, “Why did I make this?” after revealing that he has never met the two people who had asked him to create the presentation. His answer, you’ll see, is truly an example of the future that he speaks of.

A google search on the topic brings up a wide variety of opinions but I like Weller’s short and sweet delivery; I think it effectively drives his point(s) home.
