Why Education is Killing Learning. None of this is new. Creativity is being further marginalised from all levels of institutional education as the control of economic rationalism deepens. The cycle of education decay is descending, the pain inflicted on natural born learners is increasing and yet the internal hampsters, those invested in their own systems,  because "they're all right Jack" do little , overtly and consciously, to change or question their own servitude. Why the fuck would you? Sad. Really Sad, but the pain of cyclic death (we all have to endure ego death, this is just upsize!) Until enough say enough, and learners are, this decline will be the 21st century institutional legacy education historians will record 100 years hence. "Sure passing of tests that stamp you as having attained sufficient knowledge (note, NOT learning) allows test passers credentialed entry to "higher" economic rewards, often costing attendees prohibitive fees and indebtedness and return of servitude to the tertiary rubber stamper. See the cycle? See the slavery?

And very little has changed from that mid 19th century factory model.
Except the desire to learn about learning of those attending educational institutions that are failing to deliver learning, that is.

Human evolution desires, no demands, more authentic creative learning. And more learners are now seriously questioning education as economic rationalism. And choosing their own paths.

And that's creative.
Learning and Education have never been the same. Education is the formalised practice (business?) of learning, mostly extrinsically motivated, whereas (pure) learning is an inside job of expansive, mostly individual, choice. ...

“We would like to make Finland the leading country in terms of playful solutions to children’s learning,” said Olavi Mentanen, director of the PLC project,
The eyes of the education world will be upon Finland as it opts for change: will it be able to retain or improve its showing in the PISA league tables published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
If it does, how will the rest of the education world react? #education   #schools   #learning   #innovation   #evolve   #create  
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.

“'We live in water in our mother's womb,' Hopi grandmother Mona Polacca explains. 'Moments before we come into this world, the water of our mother's womb gushes out, and we follow behind. That is why the Hopi call water our first foundation of life.' “It is not coincidence the Grandmothers say, ...
