One of the ideas from yesterday's brainstorm (thanks John Kucera!) was that we should create a brief description of what we're doing that we can post to high-traffic blogs and sites. In order to provide a clear, concise version that we can all support, please comment to this post by answering the questions below. On Monday morning I will synthesize the comments and write a draft for us all to critique. Based on your feedback, I'll write a second draft for us to discuss in person on Tuesday, and then I'll post one more time Tuesday night so that we can all ratify the final version.
Here are some initial questions (feel free to add/tweak):
1. Since this model of learning is new it doesn't have a name yet. What should we call it?
2. How would you describe this model of learning? What are its guiding principles, what tools does it use, and how do participants benefit?
