About Judy Breck:
A couple of years ago she explained why “I am a blogger.”
In the following 18-minute video interview by Ulrike Reinhard of we_magazine is Judy discusses her basic open content concepts, which are based in the migration of what is known into a virtual network within the internet. This is the introduction to the interview at the magazine website:
Judy Breck, is convinced that:
“everything begins with the smallest unit, the individual. Like microlearning: ideas, meaning, and appropriate political action networks emerge as the patterning of micro nodes. Individual sovereignty is the unalienable civil right of each person.
The mobile computer can deliver what is known by humankind to each human node — each micro unit. The mobile device, unlike many school and social settings and networks, liberates the individual. The mobile device does not know or care about your color, eyes, or who is your daddy.”
For some of Judy’s ideas and illustrations about mobile learning click the starter page here for Judy’s talk The Long Tail of Mobile Learning at the Design For Mobile conference in Lawrence, Kansas, April 2009. The iPhone user in the starter illustration is 20 months old. He will be 12-years-old in 2020. The future education we are now creating now is for his generation.
