The “new” news process

The graphic in this short post – The “new” news process – captures part of the iterative, evolving, multi-faceted, and multi-contributor process of where we are going with education. Journalism today has shifted from a broadcast model to an interactive model with reader input/feedback. I see no reason why we don’t take a similar view of our educational resources. Instead of having the educator present “read this” material to learners, a more desirable model would be for learners to interact/critique/update/improve existing learning materials. It will likely result in greater learner engagement (which in turn we generally conclude with result in “better” learning), but also the resource will be more valuable for future learners as it (the resource) is more current and reflective of multiple perspectives.
