If you have a question about this talk, please contact Michelle Heydon.

In economics previous models were based on an assumption of scarcity. In a digital world we have abundance and many of these models do not apply. There are two types of response to this, the abundance response which assumes it and the scarcity response which tries to recreate scarcity models in a digital format. Freemium is an example of the former and DRM an example of the latter.

I then explore whether there are similar arguments to be made for pedagogy based on the following assumptions:

  • Content is free
  • Content is abundant
  • Content is varied
  • Sharing is easy
  • Social based
  • Connections are lite
  • Organisation is cheap
  • Based on a generative system
  • Crowdsourcing
  • Network is valuable
