 It means stepping back and pushing aside preconceptions while utilizing your native wisdom—all the things that have become natural through years of living, trying, and making. It’s like a mental time machine transporting you back to a point of open curiosity but with a higher level of wisdom.
“I don’t know anything.” It might seem counterintuitive but I try to tell myself this every day when I wake up. It’s quickly becoming my daily mantra.  Now, this isn’t ...

Curiosity is key.
“Curiosity turns out to be a quiet superpower that all of us have. You don’t need an Ivy League education to use it, you don’t need a high-speed Internet connection. What’s curiosity done for you lately? We’re betting it hasn’t done enough.”

Really cool! Looks like a generalist- kind of approach!
For years, Finland has been the by-word for a successful education system, perched at the top of international league tables for literacy and numeracy.

"More academic pupils would be taught cross-subject topics such as the European Union - which would merge elements of economics, history (of the countries involved), languages and geography."

France also announced 10 days ago that they want to move to this #generalism  approach in 2016. http://bit.ly/1LRLbKo

"PPE for "interdisciplinary practices teachings"

This acronym refers to the working time scheduled for 5th, 4th and 3rd, favoring project-based teaching, small groups and interdisciplinarity. Objective: to enable college students to understand the meaning of their learning by contextualizing them, crossing the concretizing ... Teachers need to be in control, designing modules based on the strengths and weaknesses of their students It is the wish of the department. sure that the teaching profession is in demand of educational freedom."

The French governement and this article haven't shared yet how teachers will be coached for becoming generalists.

#ExplorerCircles at school?

"There are other changes too, not least to the traditional format that sees rows of pupils sitting passively in front of their teacher, listening to lessons or waiting to be questioned. Instead there will be a more collaborative approach, with pupils working in smaller groups to solve problems while improving their communication skills."

Take a step in a direction that’s unknown. Try something new. Start a project that makes you scared. Allow yourself to feel some of the discomfort that accompanies a new, uncertain experience. It’s the only way to take flight.
Thomas Selfridge bears the unfortunate distinction of "first person to die in an airplane crash." This is his story.

 "I talk to other people. I seek out their perspective and experience and stories, and by doing that I multiply my own experience a thousandfold."
Ever wonder what curiosity can do for you? Author Warren Berger looks at how the tendency to wonder is a secret to success.

The built-in features of our brains, and the life experiences we accumulate, do in fact fill our heads with immense knowledge; what they do not confer is insight into the dimensions of our ignorance. As such, wisdom may not involve facts and formulas so much as the ability to recognize when a limit has been reached. Stumbling through all our cognitive clutter just to recognize a true “I don’t know” may not constitute failure as much as it does an enviable success, a crucial signpost that shows us we are traveling in the right direction toward the truth.
The trouble with ignorance is that it feels so much like expertise. A leading researcher on the psychology of human wrongness sets us straight.
