DesNews Piece on Online Education

David Wiley ist von der heimischen Presse in Utah gebeten worden, einige Zeilen zur Frage „Will Online Courses Transform Education?“ zu schreiben. Seine Antwort ist, auch für Nicht-Akademiker, klar: Technologie ändert gar nichts, es sei denn, man nutzt sie, um Dinge anders zu tun. Was er an einem kurzen Beispiel der Open High School of Utah demonstriert.

„Asking whether technology can revolutionize education is asking the wrong question. It’s akin to asking if hammers and saws can build houses. Only people can build houses or revolutionize education. Technology gives us powerful tools to accomplish educational goals, but unless we pick them up and use them to do something different than we did before, there won’t be a different outcome. If we pick up these tools and use them to do exactly what we did before, we will get exactly the same outcomes we did before.“
David Wiley, iterating toward openness, 8. März 2011
