New Technology Supporting Informal Learning

A nice paper by Stephen Downes on "New Technology Supporting Informal Learning".

Stephen writes:
we often talk about games, simulations and other events in learning, but these technologies support only episodic learning. Equally important are those technologies that provide a context for these learning episodes, an environment where students interact and converse among themselves.
A must read for everyone interested in network learning.
