Shifting Control

I first saw Alan November at the ECIS IT Conference many years ago.  In this movie Alan talks about how students have to become more active participants in the 21st century classroom.  He talks about the necessity of globalizing the curriculum and how students need to be having conversations with other people around the world across the internet.  He talks about how the learner becomes a contributor, which leads to a shift of control from the teacher to the students who are collaborating with each other in order to learn.
