“The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”- ALBERT EINSTEIN
If you believe that learning should be a joy and not a job…
…If you believe in learning without limits…
…You may be ready for the Future of Learning.
REVERSE ENGINEER YOUR IDEAL FUTURE OF LEARNING.
“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”- WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS
While the process of education may currently be to ‘pound in’ a subject matter, the root word of education is Educo, which actually means ‘to draw out.’
If we returned to Educo, both universities and companies could create authentic experiences focused less on outward facts and more on inward wisdom.
“The fact is that given the challenges we face, education doesn’t need to be reformed–it needs to be transformed. The key to this transformation is not to standardize education, but to personalize it, to build achievement on discovering the individual talents of each child, to put students in an environment where they want to learn and where they can naturally discover their true passions.”
– Sir Ken Robinson

What if instead of just teaching subjects, we also started teaching students?
“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I may remember. Involve me and I learn.”– BENJAMIN FRANKLIN

in the Star Chamber…
The Star Chamber THEN and NOW
A real room in the Westminster Palace, built during the reign of Edward II with the goal of transforming equality, justice, education and the arts. He failed as a King, but he succeeded with the Star Chamber, because he created an unheard of collaboration between nobles and commoners.
The principles we learned by studying each luminary below have been combined in an extraordinary way to revolutionize learning. (Note: The luminaries include you when you are at your best).
The Star Chamber
Explore the concepts of Experience Design through video, gameplay and storytelling.
Discover how the concepts relate to you personally, in your work and in your life.
Learn through the use of technology and immersive, interactive tests.
Do your passion, do your purpose everyday, aided by social technology.
AN EXPERIENCE EXPOSURE
See the Future of Learning differently.
Ask anyone about education at any level – it seems like there is more disappointment that delight. Whether it’s kindergarten, college or corporate education, the descriptions of “mind-numbing,” and “waste of time,” “check the box,” “required nonsense” and “expensive piece of paper” don’t go with the exhilaration we feel when learning something meaningful. By flipping focus and using technology and time differently than ever before, learning will be restored to the joyous pursuit it was meant to be.
The Expected questions:
We’ve been teaching this way for a long time. Why should we change now?
When we need our people to get up to speed on a new process or program, we need it now. How does your Flipped Classroom do that?
Education isn’t supposed to be fun. Is it?
Do you expect us to take the time to teach everybody this whole new way of teaching?
The Experience answers:
The Experience answer isn’t faster learning or better learning, it’s love of learning. Then the rest takes care of itself. (And then it’s actually faster and better.)
Sound impossible? Not if there’s a goal, challenges, application, inspiration, engagement, collaboration and fun. That’s right. We said the ‘f’ word. Fun.
Because like virtually everything, education can be intentionally designed as an Experience and remember great teaching is ¼ preparation and ¾ theater. Even teaching the teachers should be an Experience.
“In His Own Words”

The Future of Learning will go far beyond today’s seminars and webinars. At least, I hope so. Learning should be immersive, memorable and fun. With a great story. It should help you express more than just new facts. It should help you express your talents and passion.
