EVOLUTION IS HAPPENING NOW

Evolution is about change. Anyone doing social change work, anyone trying to improve conditions, anyone trying to empower, succeed, innovate, heal, strengthen, renew, transform, enlighten — or even conquer or destroy — is engaged in evolutionary work.

Ultimately change is happening all the time — and we’re all involved — whether we notice it or not, whether we want it or not. Some very stable-seeming things — like mountains and stars — are changing in ways or at speeds we cannot easily see, or are made up of a dance of smaller changes. Furthermore, evolution doesn’t stop: Changes over here in my world evoke changes over there in yours. We keep striving to get to a place that is more comfortable, more enjoyable, more successful, more whole — changing things for everyone else as we do. All the little changes in our personal lives add up to bigger changes in our shared world — just look at climate change for a vivid example. Those big changes then influence our personal lives, which shape our neighbors, the economy, and the future of our planet….

We are on a cusp of unprecedented crises caused by the appalling obliviousness with which we use our awesome collective power. With climate change, extreme economic imbalances, the degradation of democracy, dangerous technological developments and many other dangers and collective stupidities, we’re rapidly moving into a ‘change or die’ situation. These crises will bring changes we can barely imagine. We have brought ourselves to a brink of both calamity and transcendence at a global level. Business-as-usual — the source of our security — is now becoming ever more clearly The Problem. So we find ourselves blessed/cursed (both!) with a marriage of opportunity and necessity: We can and we must transform ourselves and our social systems into a truly wise force for conscious evolution — a whole new way of being a civilization.

That is why we are here. It is the next chapter of our evolutionary story.

Learning is most effective when it’s personalised; it means something to the learner. That happens when people feel they are participants and investors in their own learning, shaping what and how they learn, and able to articulate its value to them.” — Leadbeater, Charles, “What’s next? 21 Ideas for 21st Century Learning”

The teachers role is changing from a one-to-many distributor of content (lecturing), to a facilitator of one-to-many personalized and blended learning environments, and reinforcement over time to create individual mastery. Technology must individually deliver proven accelerated learning methodologies for participants to enage the content interactively over time. The teacher will facilitate bettered individual learning outcomes through technologies. The cool technology, like the iPad, is only individually valuable if the learning is truely changed from one-to-many to one-to-one.

We want our students to be engaged because engagement fosters learning. And yet the rules of engagement are changing — in education, in business, in life. We once knew and accepted the unwritten standards of etiquette: When a speaker spoke, we paid attention. We may have taken notes, but we listened respectfully, eyes forward. Being present and attentive was simple courtesy.

Now, though, we’re redrawing boundaries without discussing why the original ones existed in the first place — or understanding what impact the new boundaries may have. Our tolerance and our culture are changing one tweet at a time.

It’s something we need to pay attention to.
