xEducation, el nuevo libro de George Siemens, Bonnie Stewart, y Dave Cormier

Sólo una pequeña nota para poner sobre aviso de xEducation (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2013), el nuevo libro que están escribiendo George Siemens, Bonnie Stewart, y Dave Cormier. Lo presentan así:

Our focus is on sidestepping the rather substantial hype around educational reform, particularly from the technological angle, and present a solid discussion of the scope and nature of higher education (HE) change.

Para seguir la escritura del libro han creado el blog xED Book, a book about education stuff, moocs, etc., en el que -como es lógico- apenas hay todavía sino declaraciones de intenciones:

The university’s main currency, its main product, is knowledge. As new things are done with knowledge, university’s face pressure to adapt to knowledge’s structure and flow.
