Quotation
  On designing space to enhance collaborative learning by John Seely Brown Ex. Director of Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (Parc)

  On pouring knowledge into people's heads by John Seely Brown Ex. Director of Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (Parc)



Quotations from John Seely Brown:

 If you can design the physical space, the social space, and the information space together to enhance collaborative learning, then that whole milieu turns into a learning technology.

John Seely Brown, Ex. Director of Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (Parc)



 It's never enough to tell people about some new insight.

Instead of pouring knowledge into people's heads, you need to help them grind a new set of eyeglasses so they can see the world in a new way.

That involves challenging the implicit assumptions that have shaped the way people have historically looked at things.

John Seely Brown, Ex. Director of Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (Parc)
