The Death of the Classroom, Learning Cycles and Roger Schank.
Fielding, Randall
Roger Schank's ideas regarding the abandonment of classrooms as the central learning environment and changing the delivery of education are examined. Schank believes today's learning cycles should be divided equally between working at a computer, talking with others, and making something--none of which requires a formal classroom. Emphasis is placed on doing something as the best way for learning to occur, and computer simulations that engage students to take action, wrestle with failure, and develop emotional connections with the experience are the best solution for this task. Further, Schank believes that virtual universities via the Internet will eventually be in direct competition to the existing secondary and university system. (GR)
