A Vision & Framework for Human-Centered Learning Environments

Dr. Bernard Bull

Industrial Age Learning Priorities

  • Standardization & Uniformity

  • Mass production & scale

  • Efficiency & Order

  • Quantification & Measurement

  • Centralized Power & Authoritarianism

  • Mechanization & Automation

  • Technology (applied scientific knowledge)

Proposed list of alternative priorities

  • Adventure & quests

  • Agency & action

  • Compassion & Connectedness

  • Experimentation & Play

  • Mastery & Growth

  • Meaning & Purpose

  • Wonder & Mystery

  1. How can I use the language of quests and adventures?

  2. What would my course look like as a quest?
