The Learning Renaissance

The Importance of System Thinking Skills for Learners of All Ages

BOLD is becoming one of my favourite online sources for leading-edge articles on the future of learning.

The themes developed there are very much in line with the philosophy of the Learning Renaissance in discussing new directions in learning and the significant recalibration of current practice to access them.

This article is an interview between Aisha Schnellmann and Leyla Acaroglu, a social scientist, entrepreneur, and founder of the Un-School of Disruptive Design about the skill-sets both teachers ad students need to develop for the future.

Leyla comments:

‘Many of today’s problems are a result of externalities and unintended consequences caused by yesterday’s solutions, with linear thinking disconnecting people from the natural systems that surround them.’ works for me by simply substituting school for ‘today’s problems’.

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
