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: "Lifelong playing for lifelong learning"

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."

Who dares, plays

Who dares, plays | The New Era of Learning | Scoop.it

"Ms Tan had a hunch that for a younger generation of parents, born in the 1980s, those prejudices in favour of piano-bashing and rote learning might be waning. She believes that these younger pussycat mums might instead appreciate their children learning the creativity, teamwork and problem-solving that, she argues, come from playing with Lego."

Luba Vangelova's insight:

A sign that the tide may be turning against the Tiger Mom phenomenon in Asia? It may tie in with greater prosperity -- the book "Disrupting Class" says poverty (perhaps even the fear of it?) can be a powerful extrinsic motivator that renders the style of education secondary to the end result. But once extrinsic motivators are resolved, one needs intrinsic motivation to learn. Curiosity and the urge to explore (play) are powerful intrinsic motivators.

Who says free play is just for children, or that Seussian creations are purely the realm of fiction?
