Shifting Thinking - starting to reflect on my own shifts

I've been at the Shifting Thinking conference run by the New Zealand Council for Educational Research today. The day has been structured to model 21st century learning processes, interleaving stimulating presentation with participant participation and opportunity for individual and shared reflection - with blogging and twitter feeds threaded throughout.

The process has been thought provoking and I'm still reflecting on what it means. A couple of thoughts sparked by the presentations:

the importance of decoupling "curriculum" and powerful knowledge, from the "cannon", the reified products of knowledge privileged by the powerful; and

moving our language into the 21st century - we're already starting to move beyond the knowledge society - how do we articulate what's currently liminal?
