Abstract

Certain processes mediate the impact of the cognitive consequences of technology in the school setting. As Seymour Papert proposed, it is critical to shift from learners engaging with institutional procedures to the institution engaging with the learner. This implies that institutions need to recognize the new cultures of learning and networking and engage with those cultures. Yet that involves profound change in institutional practice and procedures, institutional organization, and in curriculum organization and pedagogy. Engagement can occur if we shift from the idea that schooling is isolated from the community to one of social discourse, knowledge development, and sharing. We need to rethink the role of schooling and provide support for learning within communities and society through technology. To this end, the author explores conceptual frameworks connecting formal and informal learning through use of the following: project-based learning; cooperative learning, open educational resources; and cross-age multi-cultural grouping
