To think outside of the classroom. Before we show you how to do it, it seems fairly imperative that we all understand what it means.
To think outside of the classroom… Before we show you how to do it, it seems fairly imperative that we all understand what it means.
So, what does it mean?
For us, it is more than just something we say at the end of our name or as a parting statement in our communique, it sums up our approach to education and indeed, the future of it.
The world we know has changed drastically in the last few years, let alone the last sixty – and the walls of the traditional brick and mortar classroom have become the confines of our ability to explore the new world.
But as they say, timing is everything… which is why now more than ever before we are able to truly explore and ultimately educate ‘outside of the classroom’ because just about every person on the planet has access to all the information out there. And not only that, they have access to the other people looking to learn too.
So what does it mean to us to ‘think outside the classroom’? It means learning without boundaries, educating without limitations, and thinking about more than what we can see right in front of us.
So, if thinking outside of the classroom is fundamentally about the evolution of education and taking a responsive approach to teaching and learning, then how can everyone get on board?
By being open to change and the expansion of current and antiquated systems to incorporate and include new, different, and sometimes opposing ideas.
We need to think outside of what we know… Think outside of the box when it comes to the future of our planet and the way we teach our future leaders… We need to think differently than how we did sixty to one hundred years ago, because things have changed, and they don’t seem to be stopping anytime soon… We need to think outside of the classroom when it comes to learning about the world we live in and the one we will leave behind.
That’s how we see it at Valenture, anyway.
Join the 4th Industrial Revolution by taking an active approach to how we take on and learn in this new world because it’s a new world not only of the unknown but a new world of possibility.
