Internet gave birth to OER, and OER gave birth to Web 2.0, then 3.0, 4.0… What will Web x.0 give birth to? Cybernetic-human generation?
Would it be interesting to research into these evolution of movies and social media and map out the co-evolution of the networks and communities, and human? We could then see what and how relationship and interactions have emerged or will emerge in society ( & the global communities) out of our nebulous ideas-connections (internet and web)? There are many researchers working on the Youtubes in their PhD studies…. and that is only one tiny sand in the beach, waiting to be explored.
Will we become the cyborgs?
Or like those in the Terminators x.0 where people imagine themselves as invincible human, or as avatars in Second Life dwelling in the global networks and communities. Can we have a Third Life game? Mixing this life with Second Life. Real and imaginary all in one, in the world of learning.
Seeing, doing is believing.
Thinking, reflecting, connecting, networking, experimenting and tinkering is learning.
Cyborgs are just agents in a CAS. Aren’t we all human, not cyborgs?
How will cybernetics impact on education and learning?
This site on cognition is cool.
