Leonardo’s Laptop

I’ve been flicking through Ben Shneiderman’s book Leonardo’s Laptop today and saw he’d written a section on e-learning in which he proposes a model for classroom and distance education.

COLLECT Gather information and acquired resources
RELATE Work in collaborative teams
CREATE Develop ambitious projects
DONATE Produce results that are meaningful to someone outside the classroom

Skimming through it reminded me quite a bit of Steve Taylor’s proposal for a postmodern monastry and open-source theology. The last bit especially – creating things for the benefit of the wider community.
