What's worth learning?

"What's worth learning" was the question which kicked off one of my most thought provoking classes with David Perkins.  The class was entitled 'Educating for the Unknown' and unbeknownst to be me at the time, the class proved to be the genesis of the Institute for the Future of Learning.

So, what do I think is worth learning? Here's my current thinking in graphic format below.  I'm about to embark on a six week tour of the educational 'whole child' models which I view most promising, proven and aligned with my own thinking regarding healthy learning environments for both students and educators.

I will put my theories to the test and report back weekly on this blog - stay tuned!
