The Genius of "And". Reconciling the Enterprise and the Personal Learning Network
Type of work: Conference
The current educational technology debate is often framed as a contest between the CMS and the PLN, between centralized IT and individualized toolboxes. Jon Mott, Assistant to the Academic VP for Academic Technology at Brigham Young University, argues that we should reject this "either-or" choice and instead embrace the possibility of a best-of-both-worlds "and" solution. Such a solution would combine the value of SIS integration and secure, assessment-related communication with the openness and persistence of the web.
