boredom is a disease of the modern world

I can only offer these leads – the power of unflinching awareness, of looking directly at the crisis we find ourselves in; the natural centrifugal tendency of human consciousness, when it is given the necessary time and space, free from distraction and negative stimulus; our minds’ ability to re-coalesce, despite ourselves, into unified singularity; and, perhaps most importantly, the remediating power of joining together in reality with other human beings: of connecting the ideas, the facts, the data, the lonely realities discovered in the long watches of the night lit only by the ghostly lantern-light of a laptop, with the immediate, pulsing, reviving, hope-giving reality of mutual conviviality and of shared human presence.
High Tech High in San Diego has a master’s program with training in project-based learning techniques. Such models, in turn, are part of a national movement emphasizing practical instruction for teachers already in the classroom full time.

But the point is that the equation isn't the math; it's not the insight, the creativity, that actually happened inside Einstein's head. What if Einstein didn't have to resort to symbol-manipulation to express and communicate the idea that "matter is equivalent to energy in this exact way"? What if the next Einstein doesn't have to do that? If fact, what if "not having to do that" is how we get the next Einstein?
i believe that there is a little spark in the darkest of human beings.. it all depends on how we look on it..
institutions don't look at you.. they don't have keys
what we have now - specialized sitting
i can't educate people to be more human -i can only provide them access to the resources
i'm not interested in the classroom, i want the kids to learn what they want to learn
teacher - find out if people want to listen to you
he's totally saying.. school per choice
learning to read is a side product
would much rather people develop along the lines of which they have particular gifts
there's never been a better time to be a learner
the lab is about outposts, places to interact, to enliven, ...toward life
the lab is a mindset rather than a physical space, it's a mental space in essence
anyone, anytime, anywhere, can be/have their own innovation lab... because it is simply the mindset - of finding/making/being you.
innovation is learning is natural
the lab is an outpost, providing free spaces for you to determine your preferred use case...
the lab is an outpost, jump starting your mind to get back to that natural process of learning..
intellectual learning, that stays with you, that keeps you hungry for more, hungry for learning/being, begins with the curiosity inside each person

If someone only presents strengths and accomplishments, we know they are not sharing with us the full picture. If they don’t trust us enough to share their weaknesses and vulnerabilities, why would we ever trust them?
and all those credentials and certifications that were so important in the past, what do we think of them now? In a world that is so rapidly changing, they mean less. Sure they provide external confirmation of knowledge stocks, but those knowledge stocks are rapidly depreciating. What we learned or did in the past is much less compelling that we are learning or doing now.
At a deeply personal level, trust is built by sharing vulnerability.
this is exactly the opposite of what we were taught in a world of knowledge stocks. This is why the new approaches to building trust are so deeply subversive - they require us to challenge the most basic assumptions of the conventional wisdom of the past and to act in ways that directly contradict what we believed in the past.
As we move into more unstable times, the balance of trust shifts from skill to will.
It becomes much more a question about personal attributes than impersonal skills.
no time for pretense, anxious to present vulnerability - because then they can get better (dweck)So, how do we overcome the natural instinct we all have to avoid expressing vulnerability? How do we build trust today? One way to build trust is to pursue our passion.
If we really trust someone else, we are much more likely to take the risks involved in sharing tacit knowledge. So, trust builds advantage by providing privileged access to tacit knowledge.
Leaders are those who most publicly learn and bring others with them along the way. - Ben Grey

There's no room for ego when you truly want to change the world. - Becky Blanton
After all, what is education but a process by which a person begins to learn how to learn? -Peter Ustinov
