Video Introduction to Demass Learning

Filed under: Uncategorized — Sage @ 5:34 pm

As a person who is heavily involved in technology and teaching technology-related topics, I have spent a good amount of time considering how to deal with the issues of school and the knowledge-based era we currently live in.

Simply: I do not believe in our current education system.

We go to school in systems that were made for a mass production, mass manufacturing era. That is not where we live today.

Because of the systems that have been put in place over generations, the education system has become one of the slowest evolving institutions to ever exist.

It has become clear to me that the answer to educating people today for the times we live in will have to come from the outside.

The solutions will be radical and likely will involve a completely new way of thinking about how education and learning is done.

Demass Learning is my contribution to this dire need we have in society today.

It is not meant to be the solution. Simply a solution. Many answers will be needed in order to serve all the different facets of society. In fact, the current model continues to have a very valuable role in certain circumstances. It just isn’t the answer for, what I believe is, most people.

Below is my initial video on the concept of what I’ve termed Demass Learning. The phrase comes from Alvin Toffler who describes the era we live in as the Third Wave of society. He describes this era as the demassification of society. Where in fact standardization and one-size-fits-all approach of society has almost completely eroded.

This is amusing because of the current “standardized” tests we are now measuring all of education in the United States. It’s almost as if education itself is insisting that mass, uniform learning is the answer to our societal needs if we just force it hard enough.

The concept of Demass Learning is in the very beginning stages. I am not looking for funding, backers or investors yet. I’m just looking for your opinion.

If education is a topic of interest to you please look around and leave a comment somewhere on one of these pages or posts.

Other peoples’ insights here is going to be crucial to making this all it should be.
