Tore Hoel: My dream: A simple notation for representing learning designs.

My dream is - at some future point in time - to have methodologies, notations and interchangeable representations of learning activities that foster creativity.
The keyword here is representations, i.e. artefacts that you can share and inspire other teachers and learner how to initiate activities that will foster 21 century skills.
IMS Learning Design clearly did not deliver, being more in line with Instructional Design - teaching from a specific point of interest with a privileged position of knowing where the truth resided.
The Larnaca Declaration (James Dalziel) uses the analogy of musical notation as an indication of where to go. What I like about it is the observation that musical notations are fuzzy, giving the musician the challenge to be creative and give his interpretation. However, the Declaration - in my opinion - does not really deliver in show how this analogy should be worked into a solid representation of learning designs.
I would like to explore more how this could be understood and done. It is a dream that I don't have the knowledge and skills to make come true. But, most of my dreams are in this vain, so nothing new there!
