Current Status on learning research

I've been doing a lot of research (secondary) into alternative stuctures & methods for learning, trying to find one with the best overall results.

And the area's or topics that I have come across continue to widen, and all of them being a fundamentally different method to traditional educational methods (teacher/student).

Starting with peer learning, with wiki's, blogs, collective learning, collective intelligence,original collective intelligence, & now most recently collaborative learning.

One of the most common themes going across all methods are the lack of authority, the lack of hierarchy. And the limits of hierarchy.

The observation of ant's, which have no hierarchy or authority's still manage highly organized & complex society's/entity's (nests/hives/colonies).

And that one of the possible solutions is to remove the hierarchy in education.
