My name is Ian Gardner and I am interested in various topics that can be seen as related to education, learning and development, information services and more. This blog is my place for personal reflection on issues related to these topics, including learning technology usage and global education policy.
I have blogged on a number of platforms over the years, including the below (not all sites open/active):
- A, webinar-report heavy, PebblePad journal (2010-12)
- information, learning, technology and more (2007-10)
This site went live in July 2012.
Whose Education Is It Anyway?
This blog is primarily for me to reflect on events, articles, tweets and other development activities. I find such reflection hugely useful but also learn a lot from interaction with people who read and comment on my sites. Therefore, I hope this site can help with the learning and development of an audience beyond myself. One fascinating issue for education, at the time of the blog’s launch, is the discussion around ‘ownership’ of education and I presume many posts will consider who should be making the big decisions related to developing our global future. Therefore many posts will consider learner self-determination whilst the title also happened to be my first ever SlideShare upload (the questionable slides are here).
