The New Era of Learning
The direction in which learning is going: personalized, self-directed, grounded in the real world, and blurring the lines between age groups, teachers/students, formal/informal, etc. It taps into people's instincts and desires for play, creativity and meaning. I'm hoping to eventually incorporate this content into a robust web site that will serve as a compendium on this topic.

André Stern (who learned without any curriculum), extracts from a lecture delivered at the Salon du livre de Paris (Paris Book Fair), 24.03.2013 (in French, with subtitles).

Luba Vangelova's insight:

Wow! Andre Stern discussing the "end of education":

"The more you play, the less you’re taught, the more you learn."

How do Unschoolers Turn Out?

How do Unschoolers Turn Out? | The New Era of Learning | Scoop.it
Unschoolers weigh in on how their lives have evolved, including college, career, and overall happiness.
Luba Vangelova's insight:

My article about Peter Gray's survey of grown unschoolers. His conclusion: “The findings of our survey suggest that unschooling can work beautifully if the whole family, including the children, buy into it, if the parents are psychologically healthy and happy, and if the parents are socially connected to the broader world and facilitate their children’s involvement with that world. It can even work well when some of these criteria are not fully met.”

Drop Out Now: The Economics of Unschooling ~ Sparks & Honey

"We live in a time of great abundance and unparalleled possibilities fueled by exponential growth from the impact of technology. Our job at sparks & honey is to understand the accelerators, balancers and patterns that are driving exponential cultural change in the near term and foreseeable future.  Our team of cultural strategists and curators works with leading brands and thought leaders to apply these trends and use them as a catalyst for disruptive innovation. 

"We eat culture for breakfast in order to understand the value of emerging fringe signals, cultural shifts and explosive doubling patterns. While monitoring thousands of inputs and mapping and scoring them, we have identified 8 rapidly accelerating trends that will shape institutions, governments, businesses and everyday consumers. 

"We have consolidated these trends into short vignettes in order to share a curated snapshot of what will create either great opportunities or unexpected challenges. We will cover these trends over the next two months. This report covers The Future of Education. We hope you engage us in the debate and exploration on how these exponential trends will shape your business and the World. "
