I have just started reading this book
by Russell L. Ackoff
and Daniel Greenberg
. It is blowing my mind. Has anyone read it. Does anyone want to read it with me? I would love to start a conversation about it if anyone is interested. I believe they truly hit on the way education/learning has to change in the 21st century.
Here is a little blurb from the Amazon Website:
"Reinventing Learning for the Next Century: How We Can, and Why We Must
An extraordinary conversation about the very deepest questions...
Today, what is education for?
Where should it take place? How? When?
What is the ideal school?
The ideal lifelong learning experience?
Who should be in charge of education?
And who pays for it all?
Over the past 150 years, virtually everything has changed...except education. Schools were designed as factories, to train factory workers. The factories are gone, but the schools haven’t changed. It’s time for us to return to first principles...or formulate new first principles...and reimagine education from the ground up."
I've attached a PDF summary of some of the key ideas from the book.
