As research out of New Zealand over 30 years has shown the nature of student-teacher will increasingly be transformed from the examined to the innovatively curious www.thelearningweb.net
|.Given banking's abject failure to increase the number of financial services jobs embedded in communities as the costs of traditional recording came down one hundred fold (reference page 3 of the last article published by The Economist's Unacknowledged GiantNorman Macrae), its vital we don't mess up open education by implying this will lead to less teaching jobs..|
However we know from flow research that the people whose lives contribute most to the world - maximise the amount of time they spend at the experiential end of their most unique competence. While exceptional humans celebrate over 10% of lifetime in flow, most of under get under 1%. If the internet's open education age can't at least double that - we are seriously undervaluing human potential- perhaps unsustainably so.
This suggests that the way to celebrating a net generation valued by wholeplanet leadersthat is 10 times more productive and collaborative will be in most ways the opposite to ever more examinations from 11 years on.
|How those up to 11 share acquisition of basic literacies in an open education age is a debate of its own- note however in addition to reading, writing and arithmetic there is now huge demand for financial literacy (100+ country primary curriculum began in an indian orphanage) , and self-confidence cross-cultural literacy (an ability which research shows is mainly determined before adolescence)

where are teachers blending with real life work - eg why not teach a course with the aim of leaving per to peer youth teachers behind, thn go and extend your knowledge in a practical way before coming back to teach
which subjects (eg marketing, banking, education) have been taught from the view of what the top 1% of people with best jobs need to know but not from the viewpoint of the majority

Given banking's abject failure to increase the number of financial services jobs embedded in communities as the costs of traditional recording came down one hundred fold, its vital we don't mess up open education by implying this will lead to less teaching jobs. For those who continuously innovate knowledge that is worth youth's time multiplying value in use their will be almost unlimited work. But there wont be jobs for those who expect captive audiences for a curriculum just because its been standard part of mindsets of the pre-collaboration age. And those adminstrators used to trapping students in debt -and building ivory towers with the proceeds - are not part of the future any nation or society can afford to countenance
