Autonomy is what distinguishes between ‘personal learning’, which we do for ourselves, and ‘personalized learning’, which is done for us.
Stephen Downes’ writings have influenced me a lot in my research in personal learning environment (PLE), e-learning 2.0 and learning autonomy. Following his conversations about autonomy, I was brought to his older post: A Model of Autonomy. After reading, I feel that there are a lot opportunities to explore on the subject in related to my research which I need more time to think upon.
It is not truth that guarantees knowledge. It is knowledge that guarantees truth.
I’m starting to think like a researcher. Want to read more, explore more and find out more. That’s good, right? Haha!
