An understanding of chaos theory and the sciences of complexity is crucial to systemic transformation of our educational systems to better meet the rapidly changing needs of our children and communities. Helpful concepts include co-evolution, disequilibrium, positive feedback, perturbance, transformation, fractals, strange attractors, self-organization, and dynamic complexity. These concepts can help us to understand (a) when a system is ready for transformation, and (b) the system dynamics that are likely to influence individual changes we try to make and the effects of those changes. Furthermore, chaos theory and the sciences of complexity can help us to understand and improve the transformation process as a complex system that educational systems use to transform themselves. Strange attractors and leverage points are particularly important to help our educational systems to correct the dangerous evolutionary imbalance that currently exists.

Education reform must include the customer (public/parents/students)  and the consumer (students)
The conclusion provides some salient talking points.

Students Need Stress Management!
There is a difference between learning and school. School is where you have info and random facts shoved down your throat and you are forced to memorize them, answer the questions on a test, then you never use that info ever again. Learning is where you go and actually experience the world and you meet people and you learn about accepting each other and standing up for what you believe in and you see new cultures and new things and you LEARN. Seven hours at school and four hours of homework each night isn't going to teach students anything.

In the interest of #FreshEyes I'm sharing my qualitative research  Flipboard Magazine with Educational Revolution.  I come to qualitative research by way of my experience as an ESL teacher and qualitative insight still has much to contribute to assessment, value-added, and big data.  Exploring how qualitative research is taken up in different sectors is a generative process.....  Please subscribe if you are interested in qualitative research.  And please send me content you'd like to see included. 
 
Flipboard Magazine.  Thinking Qualitatively.  Content exploring #qualitative research approaches across different sectors.  #mrx can learn  from traditional #anthropology    social scientists #ethnography can learn from corporate ethnography, and visa versa.

About this community

Thinking about how and why teaching and learning are redefined in the age of the Internet. Join us in our other online space at http://www.LearningRevolution.com. ---- I'm starting this Google+ community to have a dialog on the changes in education that are (and could be) taking place, and the ways in which we might influence those changes. My "Hack Your Education" tour around the US the last few months has left me even more convinced that policy changes are not the answer, but that the change needs to come from us. That we need, as individuals, families, and communities, to reclaim the conversation around "learning," and to do so in such a way as to recognize the inherent worth and value of every student, with the ultimate goal of helping them become self-directed and agents of their own learning. Associated with the FutureofEducation.com interview series. Posting policy: self-serving links to commercial sites, or links or posts that are not relevant to the conversation here will be removed.

Recent advances in autism research are paving the way for a new generation of apps and assistive technology tools that can have a real impact for kids on the spectrum.
Educators, parents, caregivers, and even investors need to remember that people, not iPads, are what really drive outcomes for autistic kids.

Bravo, Google!
When you are a child quite often your parents' careers are foreign to you. Sure, you may see them get ready for work in the morning and you may even know their title (

Project based learning is interesting and complete fun. When your students apply their knowledge to real life circumstances, the education become more relevant.
With the advent of technology in education, the trend of learning subject or honing up key skills by reading and writing is a thing of past. There is no doubt that these two are core skills but the...

Hello Google+ Community. Where have I been this whole time? 

I'm getting a crash course on Google+, so apologies if I'm not a seasoned pro, but here it goes. 

Day job is a Project Manager for a General Contractor. Night time is spent as creative recluse/social entrepreneur. 

I'm currently working on a project that will hopefully create a community in the world of the interweb half way between entertainment and education. Do I have a full blown plan to execute? Not so much. What I do have is a focused ambition and value for personal development using today's technology. 

I value education and life learning, and do strongly believe that society is under educated. But there is no simple answer to remedy this. 

I'd like to share a video that was made for the project. It is only 85 seconds, and I hope captures what Education Revolution is about, at least some of its values. 

Please let me know if the video should be removed. Or does not fit these guidelines. I am more than willing to adhere to this community's structure. 

Thanks in advance.
