Bottom-up innovation…how might this apply in education?

This is a summary of Joi’s TED talk where he discusses the importance of focusing on the here and now. He takes it one step further with an emphasis on bottom-up innovation and describes this process as “chaotic and hard to control” but the rewards are powerful and can affect real-world change…now.

Joi leaves us with these words: “I think we should be now-ists. Focus on being connected, always learning, fully aware and super present.”

My questions to you:

  • Are we identifying and addressing real world issues in K-12 education today? And…
  • Are we equipping our children with the tools they need to identify and address real world problems? If so, how? More importantly…
  • What are the tools all of us need to identify and address real world problems today? And last but not least…
  • How is technology supporting these types of fundamental changes in learning at your child’s school?
