Last week I had the pleasure of meeting some cool folks who were thinking about how best to design technology to support learning in the future. The group came from disparate backgrounds under the moniker of “Meeting of the Minds.” Like ripples on a pond, I find the ideas we discussed reverberating in my mind – expanding and colliding off other ideas.
To me, the future is five minutes away. To my mind, the educational process is broken – we are largely following a model developed more than a century go that was designed to impose conformity and train future generations to labor in factories and fight in wars. Talking about ways to fix things was extremely refreshing.
Anyroad, there is now a background buzz in my brain. I am looking forward to continuing the conversation.
