THERE’S A CERTAIN TYPE OF LEARNER…

that loves to learn

that has high regards to their education

that values being in school

that wants to learn to get ahead in life

that believes in certain skills

that loves conformity

that loves standardization

that loves in-person learning

that can take an online course

that can take Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)

then there’s learners who value their creativity

they have a deep passion in change

and what they do in life is directly tied into

this passion

they have an entrepreneurial spirit

they don’t wait for anyone’s permission to lead or create

they value exploration

they champion the underdog

they are artists, designers, innovators, activist, scientist, educators, or sociologists

yet they champion the idea that everyone can learn

everyone can be apart of the learning process

learning is a fundamental right of being human

gatekeepers no longer exist

learners decide what they become

their direction is born innately within themselves

educators are guides and facilitators

ecosystems are created through community building

The learners use what they learn to better society

this is the time of creation and innovation

we cannot transform what is and what was

into the future

with the same type of mind

referencing the same type of thinking

diversity becomes a verb, the sword to murder

all the old ways

personal bias is challenged

being empathetic is an asset

It takes a new mind

with a new teacher

with new tools

to shape a new world

So here’s my siren

I’m yelling

screaming

crying

smiling

frightened with what’s ahead

yet I’m here

in it

creating movements …

The revolution begins with re-imagining  our education

The system is dead

Welcome to the new learning revolution
