three pressing challenges — 2/26/10 posting from D’Arcy Norman dot net

Three pressing challenges for learners in creating and using technology in an educational context.

1. control and ownership

2. overwhelming options

3. literacy

4. Solution?
The only solution I can think of is to just dive in. To live with a whole bunch of technologies. To not see them as separate, distinct, or extra, but rather as just the way things work. Write a blog. Publish a newsletter. Manage a wiki. Shoot some video. Post photos. Just spend time doing it. Manage your own personal cyberinfrastructure. Build your personal learning environment. Engage your personal learning network(s). They are there already, you just need to tap into them (emphasis DSC as this describes a Learning Ecosystem).
