Learning how we learn

This butterfly was sitting on a fence yesterday morning. I got really up close but she didn’t even move.

The title of this post comes from a conversation I had yesterday with @jishiha, after watching his quick demo of Scratch programming language.

Reminded me of the documentary film Waiting for Superman I watched a few months ago on a plane. The public educational system today is not perfectly optimized for what’s currently available and what works the best. As a whole we should be able to do better than this by now, but that’s not the case in reality. I liked @jishiha’s attitude on the problem though, doing what you can do at home, spreading the word one step at a time.

Scratch Day 2011 is on May 21st and there are 100 events across 34 countries planned!

    1. Yeah several of my friends regularly draw mind maps. It’s another interesting concept that could be taught in school!
