Esterman, Matt: Undermining education

Undermining education‘, My Mind’s Museum, 24 May 2015

Blog post from Sydney history teacher about the development of professional learning networks which throw open ‘the question of precisely which school one belongs to and which students are the beneficiaries of our work’.  Networks using Facebook, Twitter, Wikis, Dropbox (and other means which this old fogey note-writer has never heard of) mean teachers

can collect resources from beyond their staff room and share their own resources with many more people than their own department. In fact, without realising it, suddenly the collective knowledge and skills of all digitally connected teachers are available to anyone and everyone who would like to tap them.

‘Open source education’ seems to have arrived. Honest History would love to help where it can. Please tell us how!
