In this opinion piece, Richardson discusses his personal experiences as a prolific education blogger. He explores the idea of ‘collective passion’ in the information game, which encourages people to contribute openly for the benefit of the greater community. He concludes with a question on the relevance of the classroom and suggests that schools are becoming disconnected from a large proportion of the learning that is occurring naturally online, through participation and collaboration among increasingly large numbers of people.
