Education deals with the essence of what it means to be human. No undertaking is more valuable, more sacred.


Daisaku Ikeda

Knowledge in the past was like gold: it gave you power, influence and status. 


Now it's like milk: if you don't use it, share it and refresh it often it will become out of date very quickly.

Be PRESENT: don't ponder on the past or fear the future
What's your PRIORITY (really)? - Me/We/Us
Value the 4 PASSIONS (drives) of humanity
Stick to the P.U.P.A.E. PROCESS
The PRACTICE requires PRACTISE 
what do you want to 'keep', 'develop' or 'let go'?
Remember you are dealing with PEOPLE




"If you can't explain it simply, 

you don't understand it well enough"


Albert Einstein

There is an Indian proverb that says that everyone is 

a house with four rooms








Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time but unless we go into every room every day, even only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.  - Rummer Godden

 “You see, my dear Watson” - he propped his test-tube in the rack, and began to lecture with the air of a professor addressing his class - “it is not really difficult to construct a series of inferences, each dependent upon its predecessor and each simple in itself.


If, after doing so, one simply knocks out all the central inferences and presents one’s audience with the starting-point and the conclusion, one may produce a startling, though possibly a meretricious, effect.

The six conditions for change

all conditions need to be in place for change to occour



Potential


Do you and those in your group, team or organisation 
have the ability to change?


Solutions


Are you dealing with the immediate problems? 
Are you putting first things first and do you know what the problems are?

Dissonance


Change doesn't happen unless there is real belief that 
change is necessary.

Creating new challenges will create new problems.  

What are the problems?


Barriers


Identify and deal with the barriers. 

Names need to be named. 

What are the excuses?


insight


What new understand has been revealed and how are you going to act up it?

How do you engage, persuade and support others to 
act with you?


consolidation and support


Own it and have breathing space to make it work.

Have a small leeway for failure.

How do you offer support to prevent it from falling back into earlier habits and negative practices?

tribal
self
order
enterprise
community

The aim of education is not to transfer knowledge; it is to guide the learning process, to equip the learner with the methods of research. It is not the piecemeal merchandising of information; it is to enable the acquisition of the methods for learning on one’s own; it is the provision of keys to unlock the vault of knowledge. 

Rather than encouraging students to appropriate the intellectual treasures uncovered by others, we should enable them to undertake on their own the process of discovery
and invention.

The four human needs


To be or not to be, that is the question

The human need to question. 

An unquestioned life is not worth living.
Socrates 470 - 399

The Heartache and thousand natural shocks

The human need to form relationships of value 

Human behaviour flows from three main sources: desire, emotion and knowledge.

TO grunt and sweat under a weary life

The human need to B.E.C.O.M.E. resilient and change

We are what we repeatedly do; excellence, then, 
is not an act but a habit.

Enterprises of great pith and moment

The need to see results for our efforts

Big results require big ambitions
Heraclitus  535 - 475

The Butterfly model is a model of 

simplexity:


in systems theory a term for the emergence of simple features as a direct (though possibly highly intricate) consequence of a system of rules.
