In this, the second episode of the relaunched Learning Matters podcast, web producer Ted Bauer speaks with Allan Collins, a Professor Emeritus of Learning Sciences at Northwestern and a fellow at the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence, among other notable titles. (For a fuller look at his research and publications, consult his Google Scholar search results.) Collins co-authored a book (with Richard Halverson of the University of Wisconsin), Rethinking Education in the Age of Technology, and in this podcast, he discusses his career arc, the role of technology in schools, how we need to view the current problem, and what exactly the role of a school in America should be in 2011.

Enjoy this informative discussion — and stay tuned for next week’s episode (coming on November 30), with UPenn professor Doug Lynch.
