Conclusions

Supporting existing models that dichotomize consumers and active contributors encourages a mindset that learning is essentially a one way street. Providing access is an important contribution of new technologies, but it is limited to cover the full range of human activities. Without acknowledging needs such as empowerment and informed participation, we will not address the challenges faced by authentic real-world learning situations. The EDC provides a first step to move beyond providing access toward creating a forum that empowers users and enhances informed participation around the table and beyond.
