agile learning centers

agile learning centers


from their about page:

The world is exploding with new information and high specialization. For children to learn to navigate this fast changing landscape, they need a chance to actually be at the helm of their learning experience, to practice making decisions and discover their gifts, talents and passions.

Children are natural learners. They are at their peak of mental flexibility and ability to assimilate ideas, insights and exploration. It is senseless to consume their days and evenings with the memorization and regurgitation of data for standardized tests on a narrow selection of subjects.


currently 4 of them (via emerging leader labs) – one being Nancy‘s alc mosaic..

1:02 – how to solve all the problems at once. hard to communicate that. so we were in the shadows figuring out how to communicate that.

1:07 – how do you explain stuff. we figured out we’re better at building it than documenting it for someone else to code.

1:09 – sceptor – like having an underlying language capacity – that then gets assembled into ie: english.. fundamental capacity out of which all protocols are built – a grammar for creating grammars… our basic memory unit is a semantic tree

creating programs that operate on meaning..

1:14 – we’re basically doing a fundamental change in the computing stack.. so ie: we couldn’t build this on top of bitcoin, but bitcoin could be built on top of this… it’s got the  multi instant

1:22 – not just about changing money – we’re seeing things we don’t think are possible.. we’ll be able to self-organize in ways we ought to be able to – instead of having power struggles..

when we see this it’s like – whoa – we have to do this.. but then how to explain this.. a difficult story to tell

so – perhaps – model another way .. no?
