CRUSHING THE COMPASS: LEARNING IN THE WORLD, WITHOUT DIRECTION What’s happening with learning and training today?
DISRUPTION: WE INTERRUPT THIS INTERRUPTION TO SHAKE THINGS UP… • Disruption very “hip” today because it creates new markets and opportunities • The “Space Between” as described by Johansson (Medici Effect) and Kim & Mauborgne (Blue Ocean Strategy) Opport unity Disrupti on Discipl ine A Biology Discipli ne B Architec ture
WAS LEARNING ALL THAT DIRECTED ANYWAY? • Not to argue semantics, but, well… • Head / Top / Bottom of the class • Matriculation / Graduation • What is a “course” if not a route to follow? • Objectives • Certificates, degrees – objective tests… • Values and competencies harder to gauge • There’s a path to a peak – but what about the space in between?
TECHNOLOGY IS STRIPPING AWAY THE DIRECTION FROM LEARNING • Recordings and blogs starting to strip beginning and end of traditional “course” • Collaborative tools and social media strip the top and bottom • Search technologies and big data strip process and context HTTP://WWW.TED.COM/TALKS/ABHA_DAWESAR_LIFE_IN_THE _DIGITAL_NOW.HTML
THE NOW MENTALITY STRIPS THE RUDDERS AND SAILS • Modern and global economy is FAST • Learning is often obsolete upon completion • The path to profit is much less“Chartable” • Demand is outstripping our ability to steer • Jet planes with steering wheels… • Failure is not only acceptable, it’s desirable (in small doses) HTTP://REIDHOFFMAN.ORG/DISRUPTING-THE-DIPLOMA/
SO WHERE DOES THAT LEAVE US? • From the Silk Road… To the Frontier! • Competencies and Values Based Rubrics over Objectives • Mistakes and “UNLearning” • IEPs over degrees • No such thing as “Finished”, “Graduated”, or “Done” • Explorers, pioneers, and cartographers wanted!
NEW FRONTIERS • Mistakes are what exploring is all about? • UnLearning • Mistakes are the new right path http://www.ted.com/talks/kathryn_schulz_on_bein g_wrong.html
NEW FRONTIERS • What if Objectives became less important than competencies? • We’ve learned to refine and refine and refine our directives • Olympics and the Need for Speed • Enter the Competency and the Value Based Rubric…
NEW FRONTIERS • IEPs (Individual Learning Plans) over Degrees • No “one” path anymore • Training and Education needs to be redefined as an ongoing, and neverending process
NEW FRONTIERS • What are the Skillsets of the Pioneer? • Independence and willingness to fail • Cartography and Documentation
