Digital resident vs vistor – a current proposal of revision to the original digital native concept:

http://firstmonday.org/htbin/cgiwrap/bin/ojs/index.php/fm/article/view/3171/3049

Category intersection between economic and digital poverty like to large with a high correlation between the two, of which even visitor status may be misplaced.

Although now we are not tackling age discrimination and assumptions, these new analogies surface different inequalities of access.

Apart from the education system. Which incidentally not only denies you access to other levels if earlier stages were not passed to satisfactory level, but from the first test judges you for the rest of your life, often putting you into categories to deny you from ever achieving higher levels ever again. A bit like only showing 20 gold coins when 50 exist on the level because higher powers have deemed the other 30 too difficult for you to ever find.

Do we in fact need a “Nation of Curriculum” – something akin to MMO virtual worlds like World of Warcraft, where learners are encouraged to explore the world of education at the pace that suits the individual then sit exams (level up) when they feel ready, rather than at an arbitrary time based on the accumulative time spent in the world?

– Could be fun!
Revision of focus from process to user driven need.

An interesting thought for the day…

Man was made in God’s likeness ≡ God was made in Man’s likeness

Mother Earth emerged. It formed but was not created. Organic development and evolution. An ecosystem. Every entity in a relationship with every other, everything in balance.

Father/God = power, prescription
Mother/Earth = flat structure, equal importance, organic

Can the same distinction be attributed to the MOOC paradigm: xMOOC vs cMOOC – prescription vs natural flow.
