Democracy and Global Web Education
The mentality of Colonial/Industrial Education is when a superior/expert group imparts their knowledge down into theworking classes/cultures. Democracy in Education has the masses fully empowered to explore, create and share knowledgeon equal footing between students, the same way billions of people typically use the Web today. The disconnectednessbetween these two trickle down-collaborative strategies of learning is vast and sometimes even antagonistic.
These differences dramatically impact how we deploy social change policies, educational program structures, contentdevelopment, methods, and Internet learning technologies. Yet, authoritarian styles of social change continue to proliferate inNGO/academic strategies, methods, programs, and grants with significant problems. While colonialism continues, thecommon people are leveraging the Web to discover, adopt, and share massive knowledge bases in a way that is moreefficient, sustainable, and successful.
The world now has a more efficient global education system that bypasses ourtraditional training programs. Now how did this happen? Why is the collaborative Web a better system for social change?
