detox as a process of learning to learn (talking to yourself)

detox words

notice. dream. connect. do. be.


Tenets of Learning ~ Jake Kauffman
  1. Learning is Natural – The human brain is designed to learn. It needs a constant flow of  knowledge in order to be fulfilled.
  2. What Needs to be Learned is Learned – Nothing needs to be forcefully taught. One of the great aspects of the human mind (and how it has survived for over 10,000 years) is that it is very good at figuring out what it needs to learn.
  3. Learning is Constant – Every human brain — every brain, in fact —  is constantly developing and making connections. Even while we sleep this process is taking place. To designate times for learning and times for playing is unnatrual. Playing is learning. Living is learning.















The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.    -unknown


love of taking charge

detox as a potential means to get that innate ness back..


detox as detox

relax (disconnect/unplug from the success and failure games)
curiosity is natural.
knowledge deemed as opportunity
now binds us.
the web allows access to anything.
self-construction is natural.
most need detox to get back to what matters.
nclb = absolutely
achievement gap = misnomer

perhaps a temporary tech-facilitated nudge/jolt to get us back to us.. in a less painful/stressful/harmful/incubated way…


detox {as glue}

there are pools

There are many amazingly innovative ways to do/learn things today. Yet, nothing is for everyone. Perhaps, an enriching commonality (glue – well, cohesive integrated structure, via G Siemens) is that we focus on prepping for uncertainty (D Cormier) by simply learning how to learn – via curiosity. 


detox {as glue} – curiosity app to ground initial chaos – and to provide an echo chamber ness for authenticity – while shortening the time between intention and action/connection.

detox as common core

Imagine a world where we believed it was legal to think for ourselves.. and in so doing, we boldly spent our 16,000 hours within public education, focusing on one thing – learning how to learn. Imagine if there was a means for everyone to become expert (most believe this to happen after 10,000 hours) at embracing uncertainty, that’s it. At becoming self-directed, life-long learners. Imagine if everyone was an expert at thinking for themselves. Ridiculous?  (from 2012 doc)
