Our understanding of what constitutes "a new culture of learning" requires us to share several basic assumptions about the world and how learning occurs.
First and foremost is the realization that,
The world is changing faster than ever and our skill sets have a shorter and shorter life.
Strategies which resist or even adapt to a constantly changing world are insufficient to keep up. We need ways to embrace change and even enjoy making sense out of a constantly changing work.. Denying change has become a losing strategy.
We need to fundamentally rethink learning and strive for ways to amplify learning and make it scalable.
Understanding play is critical to understanding learning.
The application of this methodology is organized around three big questions. (See the figure below.) The first encourages us to get clear about the specific problem we are trying to solve. The second demands some reasoned explanation about the particular changes to be attempted (given the problem we are trying to solve) and what we expect these changes to accomplish. Addressing these two questions press us to detail our thinking with sufficient specificity that others might understand what we are about and why. The third question—how will we know if the changes introduced are actually an improvement—encourages an empirical orientation. We tend to believe in the power of our own ideas; we need data to push back at us and challenge what we believe to be true.

At the heart of our development are the concerns of teachers. We gather invaluable feedback from the conversations we have had with teachers in person at the conferences we attend, on social media or by email. Not only does it give us perspective but more importantly it pinpoints what needs to be improved upon.
