Interesting analogy. What would you propose to change this?

AJ Cann

Dat's wot sum peeple call "graduateness" (dreadful word). Let's dent a few stereotypes!


@Delaney - that's what the rest of the article is about!

@AJ - there's nothing wrong with graduateness (the concept, not the word, plenty wrong with the word), but it just feels a bit one size fits all doesn't it?

Patrick McAndrew

The concept of graduateness is fine BUT then should it be separated out from learning. I have just now come back from a talk by Peter Twining on his schome project. He has always had this take on schools that they have a role as prisons to keep kids out of the way (and actually that is necessary) but should not dominate over helping people learn or progress in life. Universities are perhaps less prison like but the idea of graduateness does have some mix of being there that might not be useful.

But really I wanted to comment on the coffee analogy - ok on the surface but to be worth having I want more than just that it tastes the same. Especially as the freeze-dried variety tends to cost a bit more and comes with or without caffiene. Is instant taking over? is it the pause to drink the stuff that matters? what about tea (different cultures)? as a cash crop it has wrecked economies? There is so much more to be said :-).
