sc.jpgLet's change the way we think about Learning and Hyperconnectedness

In a connected society, to disconnect, either through choice or by being required to, removes us from the stream that gives us support and meaning, and to which we contribute in return. Particularly in education, we often ask student to disconnect when they enter the classroom. To turn off their phones. To close their laptops. To behave and organise in a way that reflects a need to create 18th Century, compliant factory workers. There are huge opportunities to be realised if we change the way we think about classrooms and hyperconnectedness."
