Course Organiser / Trainer
After many years working on green & new technology initiatives in education, Fred became Head of Community Programmes at Becta working on social & digital inclusion nationally for the UK government. The work & research he did lead Fred to realise that, as Goldman said about Hollywood, “nobody knows anything” about digital & network futures – nor have any interest in social inclusion, as we are a hierarchical, representative democracy.
Fred now works “liminally” on any project that will help create a socially-just participatory democracy; Learner-Generated Contexts, Ambient Learning City, WikiQuals, CROS Universitatea Alternativă, Heutagogy, Transition Towns, P2P banking. For planning Fred now relies on serendipity & laughter.
