Redesigning Education - 5 Steps to Becoming Enablers for Change
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations highlight the pressing need for a shift in education to address global challenges like AI and promote sustainable development. This book proposes a comprehensive approach to transforming education, aligning it with scientific research, educational principles, and global initiatives such as UNESCO’s Four Pillars of Learning and the 17 SDGs.
Rather than overwhelming educators, the book seeks to integrate existing best practices into a cohesive and thoughtfully-designed “learning ecosystem.” It introduces the concept of “Technopoiesis,” which combines various approaches like art-based, nature-based, thinking-based, play-based, and experiential learning, along with social and emotional learning and global citizenship education.
By adopting an interdisciplinary perspective, Technopoiesis aims to break free from disciplinary silos and emphasises the interconnectedness of human existence with the planet. The book aims to inspire collaborative efforts among educators to create a transformative learning environment that aims at the development of head, heart and hand to make our beautiful planet a better place for ourselves and for the generations to come.
