Tinkering with the system won’t help reinvent the purpose of education

Jenny Connected

I am recently retired, so a bit out of the loop, but from my perspective not a lot has changed between 2006 and 2019, in the sense that education has not been ‘reinvented’ – notably there hasn’t been, at government and policy-making level, a change in philosophy.

The Meaning of ‘Flow’ in Education

Jenny Connected

He wondered why then did schools treat children as if they were rats in a maze, ignoring the importance of process and focussing instead on outcome and reward. These characteristics describe the process needed to experience ‘flow’ in Csikszentmihali’s terms.

Two kinds of knowing

Jenny Connected

This system promotes a mechanical process of transmission and assimilation, and policy makers deprecate attention given to meaning making. This is the third theme I have selected from Iain McGilchrist’s book, The Master and His Emissary.

Using personas in design of online and blended learning

Joitske Hulsebosch

Working with personas is not only useful for marketing professionals but also useful in a design process for learning trajectories. Abdel and Hawa prove their usefulness in this design process because the use of these two personas allow us to get into the skin of our target group.

Meet Beau, a reflection chatbot

Joitske Hulsebosch

It gave me a different insight: that I have to think more about the role of goals in a certain process and to communicate more clearly about this. In an open and social process, for example, you formulate your goal more openly. Talking to a text chatbot instead of a person, and typing instead of talking often helps the reflection process.

Collaboration is the Hallmark of Community

How to Save the World

I’ve said before that what I think are the two most important skills for the 21st century are facilitation and mentoring: Facilitation is the process of skillfully helping a group of ordinary people do their best collaborative work.

Archeology and legitimate peripheral participation

Mathemagenic

We listened, we looked, but it was difficult to get into the process. The process itself wasn’t as fascinating for the kids as digging in the ground and quite soon our two girls started to get bored. In October I went with the kids to join as volunteers for recent excavation in Katwijk. Yesterday there was a follow-up opportunity to join the team, this time to help with identification the findings.

Why it’s hard to talk about dialogic containers in English

Chris Corrigan

Perhaps this is why for the most part, people I work with in English are interested in tools and processes, and why we have a hard time explaining the “art” of the Art of Hosting. On the Art of Hosting list today there has been a very interesting conversation about some of the Japanese words that are used to describe space and container.

“But what if our people dominate?”

Chris Corrigan

It doesn’t matter if you are using a well conducted circle process or a self-organizing process, or placing limits on who can speak and who cannot. It is impossible to build a group process that is free from these behaviours. In truly participatory processes, observers are indeed influential. Use a process like Open Space or World Cafe that allows participants to set their own agendas.

Open web, newcomers and community tools

Mathemagenic

I guess it had to do not only with the state of things on the web but also with my own processes of learning in other spaces and building up enough energy to rejoin in the open. Over last years I made many attempts to return to blogging, but couldn’t quite get the feeling of how it was before. That feeling of belonging. To the idea space. To the tribe of people connected by the intricate network of invisible stories and traces of digital artefacts.

Three musketeers, time and knowledge gaps

Mathemagenic

I enjoyed the process of following this trail with the kids. I wanted to share with the kids D’Artagnan and Three Musketeers movie of my childhood, an iconic musical of its time. So we set into it, spreading three series over three evenings. And then, as usual, it became watching a movie turned into a learning experience. The first part includes musketeers song that was written to become a hit, as we found out later, watching stories about how the movie was made.

Parkours and pyjamas

Mathemagenic

After everyone left we still got as far as debriefing our kids about their experiences and lessons learnt in the process. Yesterday was Alexander’s parkour birthday party with his homeschooling friends. He was the one responsible for preparing it and this added a lot of extra tasks to the planning in the days before.

Helping kids learning to move around confidently

Mathemagenic

And, since I do not really enjoy the logistics of bringing theree kids back and forth to where they have to be, helping them to move around without me being involved is a process that I’m happy to speed up. Being able to move around without an adult is part of growing up. As the kids grow, their space also grows, from house and garden, to familiar spaces and parks, and then to the town, the country and the world.

Curious About Radical Non-Duality But Hate Videos?

How to Save the World

T he essential message of radical non-duality, as opposed to more historical types of non-duality, is that there is no ‘you’ — no separate person or thing, no self, no ‘awareness’ or ‘consciousness’ or ‘enlightenment’ or liberation, no self-control or choice or volition or agency or responsibility, no time or space, no life or death, no path or process to get closer to the ‘truth’, no knowledge or experience, no meaning or purpose.
