Learning it is getting a little too personal...just what I wanted! / Downes in Argentina
Downes talks about personal learning environments and that is the way he learns, in a personal way. He is open-minded and talks about freedom and autonomy in education. He is open and works on openness. He is easy going and belives in the do-it-yourself-mode to learn. To teach is to be transparent, to model, to show how you learn. Downes, the expert, is "someone with experience in a subject and a point of view". On his own words: everyone is the center of its own learning, the center of its net and the center of its learning environment.
Learning is something really personal. I get it , I love it and I live that way. How to make it real in formal education? -Why in formal education? says Downes.
