Hi Terry, i am interested in your analysis but paralysis has ,I fear, been an institutional norm for a long time and is probably not so new as you seem to be suggesting. I would suggest that the innovation has been exception. My interest in use of technology in learning is the potential it has to provoke educators to examine thir practices and to re-think learning.

The potential for more and more independent self directed learning in a connected world couldn't lead to a world where people Mai hei own arrangements to learn what they need and only use institutions for 'qualifications' which like twenty pound notes have no inherent value in themselves but hrough some strange set on conventions at seen as being a 'proxy' for things that really matter.
