Here is the presentation I mentioned in the last post (with some revisions). The bigger argument goes beyond learning and it is this one: We’ve been concerned exclusively in the West with externally driven freedoms i.e., those that come from the environment. To a large extent we’ve solved these questions but done so while neglecting the issue of internally driven freedoms, i.e., the psychological ones.
The notion of self-directed learning has been around for some time, but I ask why not take it to its logical conclusion – the self-directed life? The new choice and freedoms that living in a networked world offers are not complete until we are psychologuically ready for them.
And what’s even more important is that anyone can learn the skills of this mysterious psychological freedom.
Much more on how that is done in later posts.
