Abstract:
Grid computing, widespread broadband connectivity, Web 2.0 software, and a new generation of software for gaming and virtual worlds has the potential to revolutionize not only how people learn but the way we build, evaluate, and share resources and instructional strategies. These tools let us implement approaches to learning that we know are effective -- an ability to respond quickly to the needs and interests of each individual, an ability to use knowledge mastered to achieve an authentic challenge, and a seamless mixture of learning and evaluation. They also permit people around the country to collaborate in building and using synthetic environments for learning -- environments that will persist and continuously improve.
