‘you multiply knowledge by sharing it’
We live in times where information is everywhere anytime.
Differently to years before it’s not a question of finding information but rather identifying the right and true information out of huge amounts of available data and offerings. At the same time the dynamics of innovation and research entered a new dimension of speed.
What does this fact mean for our way to absorb and digest information to build up knowledge? What does it mean for the way we learn?
I’m convinced we need to change our learning concepts dramatically.
Learning starts in the moment you are born and hopefully will last during your whole life. For me personally life would be very boring without the chance to learn everyday. I’m a big learning enthusiast. As children we are allowed to learn self-paced, inspired by observing our environment driven by our own motivation and the will to discover and conquer the world. We are coached by our families and friends. Never again in life our learning curve shows a better performance.
What does this mean for our schools and universities where learning is offered in a channeled and structured way often ignoring individual needs, strengths and weaknesses?
How can we, as the society who we are, accept that our classrooms and worse the schedules look nearly the same as 100 years ago whereas the world around has changed largely?
