I. That Which Is Ending
Where is the dwelling place of light?
And where is the house of darkness?
Go about; walk the limits of the land.
Do you know a path between them?
- Job 38:19-20Finding that path by following is wasteful. Making that path is another story--one worth naming.
The last decade in eduction has been more about following, less about making.
It is time to make, yes?
II. Imagining a Near Future
Imagining near futures requires letting go of certainties, wrestling with doubts, especially self-doubts, and embracing ambiguities. This brief video from Corning reminds me that the future is not set, open to possibility. The way we have conjured school as the singular place of formal learning is being rewritten. Technologies allow for new ways of co-joining, communicating, contextualizing. What we make of it is in our hands.
