CanDo five years ago, we invisioned a system that could provide three things:
- Transparance through explicit presentation of course competency goals.
- On-line curriculum links to encourage students to engage in self learning.
- On-line ePortfolios explicitly linked to course competencies as evidence of skills mastery.
What is interesting to me is that all of these pieces with the exception of SchoolTool are being developed in Australia and New Zealand. I definetly want to find out more about what is happening down there to make all this innovation happen.
Alan Kay was right a few years back when he said the computer revolution hadn't happened yet, but it is happening now, and it is a wonderful thing to be in the middle of it.
I can hardly wait for next September, when I'll start school with our SchoolTool / Muhara / Moodle / LAMS server.
