I really enjoyed today’s discussion of “Learning Webs” in Deschooling Society. My fellow participants had some great comments and insights. While the author made some good points, it is scary to think of changing the educational system in such radical, major ways all at once. I would be afraid the students, and indeed, everyone, would not be motivated or knowledgeable enough to be in charge of their own learning. Sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know. The educational system and the society the author described sounds too different to actually conceptualize it. I can’t see it happening the way the author described it.
