    For one, there are too many tools that have suites of features that are oriented towards ‘information dump and knowledge test’ Which we know isn’t going to lead to meaningful learning. Over the years, I’ve looked at a lot of learning technology. And I see a dispiriting trend. There seems to be little learning science of late. What I see are marketing driven decisions, even when there are claims to science! And I think this is a problem.

In a UCaPP world, what is valued as knowledge comprises a vastly greater domain than that in world structured by literacy. provide timely knowledge.

    But our close-knit social groups will not provide us with the diversity of knowledge we need to navigate the complexities of our networked world. Christian Madsbjerg concludes in his book, Sensemaking : “What are people for? Algorithms can do many things, but they will never actually give a damn. People are for caring.”. How can we understand the complexity of human networks, especially when they are massaged by algorithms that drive our social media?
