What Else Can You Do?
Don’t let the ideas here and in our extensive resources lie just with you. This is a message for everyone.
Enter a dialogue with as many people as you can engage them in the issues.
Often people partly understand but cannot conceptualise solutions. This is not about blame… we need to engage the present system not alienate it. Some have never thought at all and need deep engagement. One of our roles is to explain and show how it is and could be different.
Solutions in developing personalised educational landscape solutions do and will evolve according to localised possibilities… including ways of learning that we have not yet imagined. But even now we can share the rich history and current practice of learning in all sorts of institutions and home-based situations and we can assist in the ‘futures’ thinking that can envision and give rise to its evolution. Together, the debate can be aired throughout grass roots arenas and the current learning system, the general public, media, and politicians and decision makers.
Although the road ahead is not easy the certainty is that it’s more solidly founded than the one we have at present.
