posted message: Many thanks to the people who took part in yesterday's online meeting. There was a lot of good discussion, and plenty of new ideas to chew on. I think the most important was how lucky we are: we can assume our learners are highly motivated and actually want to do the work, which isn't true of battery-farmed learners in traditional top-down classrooms. That may mean our models only work for a minority of people, but there are lots of people in that minority we can help.
Based on those discussions, I've written up Task #3: people can work on personalized projects to bring to the group in a couple of weeks, or double back and look at what the "big ideas" are that they're trying to convey. We'll aim to have it done in a couple of weeks.
