The Perfected Curriculum?
« on: May 07, 2023, 02:35:52 PM »
So I thought this was an interesting thought experiment, sparked by Psyanojim and Richard's discussions at the last meetup on how much better it would be if we counted in hexadecimal.

The idea is this: if you could restructure education, without having to consider things like how society currently actually works, what would you teach people? What methods or systems or knowledge that are currently under-used would go in, and what would we discard as obsolete? Are there foundation blocks of how we teach and think that we could actually wildly change if we put in different keystones from the start?

I of course don't actually think that education should be one-size-fits-all anyway, but I thought it was an interesting thing to think about. I'm not sure what my own answers are yet, either, but I thought I'd throw it out there and see if anyone else had thoughts.
