DISTRIBUTING REAL LEARNING CONVERSATIONS WITH VIRTUAL MONEY

Gary McI.Boyd  
【摘要】:Taking the position that broadening and deepening multi-perspectival learning conversations is the core activity of education,and that multivocal discourse is required for that,then what is most needed for Internet-based distance education is a way to facilitate ma tch-making,and support for fair give--take among learners who tutor,and tutors-who are al so learners.There are many adult and even adolescent learners who also have achieved enough com petence in subject matter areas and tutoring skills to be able to be effective peer-tutors or tea chers,while also wanting or needing tutoring themselves in other areas.If a matches can be arranged in cyberspace to connect learners to appropriate tutors,and if fair give--take can be ensured then a great flowering of life-long learning should occur.For this potential syner gy to be actualized requires that participants should have confidence that their help-offerings will be reciprocated by suitable help from others.It also requires means to check up on reci procal commitments promised,and to monitorreport the quality of the actual learning-con versation tutorials held.Possible and practicable configurations for providing such peer-tutored,and machine tutor ed,distance education are outlined on the basis of three technical developments:AI agents,w ebcentric mediation via downloaded applets with"cookie"feedback,and especially virtual curr ency exchange via public key encryption,which together,it is argued,offer particularly good options to distance learners and educators.
