Playing a piece of music of Arvo Pärt and trying to make it a piece of my own. “Please play the notes as the composer did write them down”, teachers of (classical) music often say. Classical music often is music of Big Names, Great Composers, Best Conductors. In the “Classical Music Game” some rules about who is boss and who has to follow are important.
Maybe (I do not know, but have a feeling it might be) in Literature these rules are comparable. Great books, Important names.
What could be the function of these rules? Do these rules make us happy?
Wonder if we could find this kind of game also in Educational Theory, some Great Names, Important Stories about Education.
One of the features/rules is “High up there is a master (-musicoan, -author, headmaster) and we are only allowed to stand down here in awe”
Do we ‘from habit” apply these Classic Art Game rules being students to the MOOC? Do students apply these rules (with a lot of anger and resistance in some classes) to Education?
Is now the time to occupy the MOOC?
Is now the time to forget about being adapted respectable and well behaved students?
Who owns a MOOC?
Has a real MOOC facilitators?
