I met Jordan Greenhall last night; he has a remarkable background in technology companies and I was immediately impressed with his thinking about connected learning and social systems. This short video outlines some of his thinking about “why we have jobs” and what social and economic benefits they provide in a post-industrial economy. This is the kind of thinking that is informing my work going forward as we look at what “schools” will look like 20 years from now. I am convinced education is set, not for a “disruption” in the terminology of Clayton Christensen that can be described by a steepening curve, but in a complete “step up” function that will be, in many ways, disassociated from much of what we conceive of today as “school”.
