Stephen Heppell talks...
Regular readers will know that I am a friend and colleague of Professor Stephen Heppell. We have done a number of projects together. There are many videos around of him talking, including on YouTube. However, the latest one, recorded in the past few days in New Zealand, is worth watching.
In this ULearn11 EDtalk Stephen explains why he believes that the 'structures and strictures of education will be swept aside by the engagement, seduction, delight, passion and astonishment of a new learning world'. Stephen shares his conviction that if we want to know what education will look like in the future, we only need to look at what is happening in the online world now.
As ever he makes great deal of sense, but will the key policy makers agree?
