We need to stop subscribing to traditional, outdated schooling and
attitudes about conventional education
and instead engage in authentic learning for psychological
health and wellbeing, balance,
to preserve our shared humanity,
prepare for a radically different future.
Q. How should we be educating people for the future? What should we study?
-How to change (often) and reinvent ourselves over and over again.
-Forget about hoping to stay in one profession for your entire life!
-Self-study, contemplation, and philosophy (for its practical applications)
-Study our shared humanity and the history of story-telling and its functions (to be able to decipher the difference between fiction and reality).
-Focus on the practice of physical and psychological balance and wellness.
-Understand suffering. It’s our greatest gauge of what’s real.
In the context of Harari’s talk and the above Q &A, it’s more obvious than ever that our methods of schooling are totally antiquated and in need of rapid, radical change. Landscapes for Learning will play a part in that transformation through consulting, coaching and support to prevent unnecessary suffering, and to help educators, parents and kids manage continual change and thrive.
We need to stop subscribing to traditional, outdated schooling and attitudes about conventional education (because it’s what we know and rely on and so comfortable, and it’s probably easier) and gain more understanding and execution of authentic learning (which won’t be easy)! We have the tools built into us!
As Harari says in this interview, social-emotional learning and psychological balance isn’t something that you can learn from a book. Self-study is the way. Landscapes for Learning can give you information and tools to get started on the road to self-knowledge so that you can discover and nurture a strong foundation of stability within.
*Stay tuned for my Landscapes for Learning Udemy courses that will provide people with tools, resources, and support to get started on this radical shift in how we learn, what and why we learn, attention and values for living in the present moment as well as preparing for an unpredictable future.
