onewheeljoe, 104 - connectiv, Feb 02, 2012. Thanks for this post. I see the occasional Tweet by participants who want to interview other participants and I'm interested in this peer-peer self-study within a structure where the teacher role is diminished, distributed, or transformed so greatly (depending on your viewpoint.)

The concept of actively seeking out dissenting opinions is an idea that caught me when Howard Rheingold said, "If you agree with everyone in your network, you're in an echo chamber." To date, I've only watched a few of Dave Snowden's YouTube videos and had an opportunity to just watch a few minutes of the recorded session. You're post is sending me back to the recorded session now.
