Abstract

This paper is presented as a dialogue between proponents of the traditional learning management system and personal learning environments. The dialogue form is used to highlight the fact that the struggle between top-down, traditional, institutional processes of education and the bottom-up, learner-led, chaotic world of the twenty-first century learner is a wicked problem that is not easily resolved. The conclusions are necessarily ambiguous, but it is proposed that a model of learning that gives learners the ability to decide what level of control is appropriate for them is ideal.
