Learning Spaces – What counts as a successful education? (Futurelab Research Discussion Day – 20th March)

One of the key big questions that kept entering conversations during the day was what counts as successful education? It’s a basic question yet actually highly complex and loaded.

Call me a simple fellow but my definition of a successful education is evidenced in the lives and actions of people. It’s not the rhetoric, the proxy indicators, but the concrete. It’s about peaceful, sustainable living, lack of crime, physical and mental health, useful work and contribution to family, community and society. It’s about success referenced from within as well as beyond the individual. Our current learning organisation and spaces have not got a good record here – it’s time for a change.
