Thank you for shifting the focus from teaching to learning and for the Russell Ackoff’s clip.

It’s interesting to me the extent to which we rail against the idea of free learning, as if “schooling” is a positive evolution of the learning process. And I think that’s the point that Ackoff makes so well in that video. We’ve become so inured to the idea that there is a “curriculum” that must be taught in order for kids to become “educated” that we can’t see the learning forest through the trees, so to speak.

Like what you read? Give Will Richardson a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
