Transcript of Connective Learning Communities - Empathize and Design

Makes notes here about all the things that surprised you from the interview, and those that challenged the assumptions you had.
The Design Challenge Question
"Go to school, get your degree, get a job . . ."
Does this traditional path from education to employment make sense today for the hundreds of millions of learners around the world?
(. . . posed to a college librarian)
"No . . . this 'traditional path' is accompanied by expectations that no longer fit the 'real world'. As a result, students have adopted 'ways of learning' that don't facilitate their development as 'critical thinkers'."
This administrative instructor . . .
help facilitate relations
between her students and
the community . . .
To a great extent, the educator can model the 'learning experience' by discussing or otherwise reflecting, ways in which the space and relationship between the student and the 'real world' actually work.
As an educator, I think we need to find practical ways to creatively help students fully, and more readily, connect with their subject matter.
The design challenge here, rests in facilitating interpersonal relations and communication between the learner and his or her community, which serves to enhance the student's awareness of, or appreciation for, their own learning process.
Community and communication is where and how inter-connectivity works.
her instructional content (e.g.
curriculum) otherwise lacks
meaning and/or purpose.
Completed as an "Empathy
and Design" assignment for
the Design Thinking Action Lab
Real "connection" occurs as a product of shared subjective (empathic) experience.
