Daniel Perkins frames the Future of Learning

Harvard Graduate School of Education hosted the Future of Learning Conference .  While I was not fortunate to attend, I did follow the twitter discussion (#hgsefol and #hgsepzfol).  I discovered a presentation by David Perkins.

Elements of the presentation include a discussion of the future of learning:

The Six Beyonds (above).  

  • Beyond Local
  • Beyond Content
  • Beyond Topics
  • Beyond Prescribed Studies
  • Beyond Discrete Disciplines
  • Beyond the Traditional Disciplines

What kind of learning?

Niche learning:  understanding the process of mitosis

Lifeworthy learning:  Studying communicable disease and how they are spread

Reimagine education with much less niche learning~ David Perkins
