Industrial Age Learning Priorities
- Standardization & Uniformity
- Mass production & scale
- Efficiency & Order
- Quantification & Measurement
- Centralized Power & Authoritarianism
- Mechanization & Automation
- Technology (applied scientific knowledge)
All of these priorities are incapable of infusing “oxygen” into our learning contexts.
Proposed list of alternative priorities
- Adventure & quests
- Agency & action
- Compassion & Connectedness
- Experimentation & Play
- Mastery & Growth
- Meaning & Purpose
- Wonder & Mystery
Questions to consider when “radicalizing” the course/changing priorities
- How can I use the language of quests and adventures?
- What would my course look like as a quest?
But how do we shift to these alternative priorities?
