The Art of Eduventurism

An extension of Eduventurist.org, this Tumblr is a space for crowd-sourced art, thoughts, quotes, links and videos relating to an alternative vision for learning. This means that anyone can contribute when they feel inspired to!

I am super inspired by all the posts and articles that I have seen from eduventurist! I was thinking some people here might be interested in YIP (the international Youth initiative Program) (I went there last year) which is striving to work with new ways of learning in community together with lots of amazing contributors and incredible people! :) www.yip.se 

Ultimately, you are the only person you have. We all exist within the structures and systems of our society, and any evolutionary biology can tell you that species evolve slowly over a multitude of generations, even though individuals may be drastically different in each of those generations. Our systems change, but they change slowly. But each of us can alter ourselves drastically. Do it now. Liberate yourself. There is peace within the form.

Thanks for sending me the article!

What’s your college degree going to give you?

I mean the degree itself, the piece of paper. What will that get you?

It’ll help you make more money later on, for…

Discipline, hard work, rationality, calculation, can get us only so far; and in time will become the norm. With it we will produce efficient, but mediocre citizens. These are tools that can be used for good or ill. But the science of intuition – the mysterious spark that separates the great discoverers and philosophers and artists from the nearly great, this will one day have to be studied, and used for the common good.
