I was fortunate to sit on the 2014 Gensler Panel on Future Proofing Facile Learning Environments of Tomorrow. These are the six slides I delivered.
Introduction of design fiction as an essential agent of educational change. Take away is thatwe must suspend disbelief (even our own) in the design and prototyping of new learning ecologies.
For design to be effective, a theorization of the field is essential and needs to be ongoing.
Design based research holds a unique import for the education space. We need to understand and use design based research in our endeavors as educators.
This is what the future of education looks like in progressive and pragmatic currents.
It was good to reflect on the paths I choose in education and society. This was an excellent exhibition for me with a vast array of professionals in the audience, knowledgeable of educational and the fields of the future.
