How do we teach – coach, really – the ways to find one’s purpose? I’ve yet to see a class called “Purpose” in a school course catalog (and I’m not sure I’d want to see it so silo-ed out). Do we help learners understand and uncover and discover their purpose as much as we help them learn punctuation, penmanship, and prepositions?
I love this piece and resource from Unstuck and Stone Yamashita Partners.
May we be as concerned with #Purpose in schools as we tend to be with the other P’s above.
Fascinating, provocative blog post about some questions to ask when innovating in education. For example, #2 is “What will be the possible impacts of your action? Predicting and applying systems thinking to this process is critical. Like Peter Senge writes: ‘today’s problems are a consequence of yesterday’s solutions'”
“That’s why the latter option mentioned in my previous post of “Get it out the door asap 80% done. For you will make mistakes anyway. Best get first one out the door so the second, third, fourth are even better.” works best when you’re doing something new, different, innovative… ie worth doing.” [HT @jbrettjacobsen]
