Exponential life

We live in an exponential world. Population growth, computing power, Carbon dioxide and more. Change is increasing at an increasing rate.

But what about education? Are people learning exponentially faster in 2018 than they were in 1918? It doesn’t seem like it. School still takes the same amount of time even though the curricula haven’t changed drastically.

What would it take to make education exponential? Technology could definitely play a role, but only if it’s main job is to help students have moments of insight and help educators focus on the important work of connecting.

Watching your lecture on YouTube may have benefits, but it’s still a lecture. Transformation happens through action. Exponential growth is driven by continuous action and reflection. How might we use technology to help force that issue?
