Deschooling or re-schooling: PLEs, the good shake for formal education


Rita Kop’s presentation on the Design of Personal Learning Environments is to me a very thorough one. She has thoroughly discussed – in a balanced way – both sides of the issue and it would be nice if more educators listen to the presentation and offer the views on the many good ideas Rita talks about..

I will comment on one important concept that Rita touched on –  the radical idea of deschooling education.  I agree with this idea to a great extent. In my opinion, the modern school or any other formal educational institution has become more important than learning/education.  The inflexibility of the school routine, curriculum, assessment, etc is not helping many students learn.
