The Web’s founder calls for action, so where is education?

The Web’s founder calls for action, so where is education?.

My response:

What idealistic thinking Berners-Lee has when he says: “Unless we have an open, neutral internet we can rely on without worrying about what’s happening at the back door, we can’t have open government, good democracy, good healthcare, connected communities and diversity of culture.”

This sits up there with world peace, free education for all and a world with no poverty!

Personally, I think and work with a large majority of educationalists that view the open web as open enough – the politics driving it is not a concern for many.  It’s like opening a tap and expecting clean water to flow – not thinking about how it gets to you in the first place.  I think the view of access to the internet in education has been similar to this up until now.  We need to shut the water off to suddenly discover that we need, want and can’t live without it and then ask Qs about how to get it back 🙂

Thanks Bryan for your thoughtful and thought provoking posts!
