in the city

  1. 1. [having to do with #/kinds of people... eclectic ness]
  2. 2. [having to do with #/kinds of people... eclectic ness] Seeking to improve learning for a classroom of 3rd graders, for an entire school, or even for a business or public sector, is a boost for sure. But perhaps those very structures (mental and physical) are at the heart of the problem. Perhaps authentic learning/connecting/being thrives in more organic/chaordic spaces. Perhaps the sharing of resources (people, spaces, things) city-wide is where we might get at a cross- generational, eclectic community of people, a village.

Perhaps we redefine public education so that cities are co-created ongoingly, bettering each moment. Perhaps we create more human capital by believing we really can learn/be/do anything we want, and that the more we facilitate that for everyone, in a city, rather than regulate/manage some given/standard ideal, this debate becomes an ongoing conversation — a crowdsourcing — about what matters most.

  5. 5. Imagine city as school with the entire city as the floorplan. The high school buildings become resource centers and meet up spaces. There is a city-wide art hall and engineering hall, forensics hall. The town acts more like a university campus.. where people are walking and biking to and from buildings through the course of a day, as the day. Feeding off each other. Feeding off life.

We need a move toward a more practical, sustainable learning model that is less based on market-driven accreditation and more on the inevitable give and take that happens among people who engage in similar activities and share similar forms of literacy and worldviews. …. Community as curriculum. Community as measure. How are the people around you doing. – Dave Cormier

Once we understand that learning can and should occur outside the classroom, it will become commonplace to see students engaged in learning activities throughout the community. - Stephen Downes
