How might the stories we tell about the future help us bring about the futures we want?
In this episode, I speak with Will Richardson. Will was a guest on the podcast a couple of years ago, and it’s fascinating to notice how he his thinking has both shifted and stayed strong. A former public school educator of 22 years, Will has spent the last 18 years developing an international reputation as a leading thinker and writer about the intersection of social online learning networks, education, and systemic change. Most recently, Will is a co-founder of The Big Questions Institute which was created to help educators use “fearless inquiry” to make sense of this complex moment and an uncertain future. We discuss:
🥥 Moving from a culture of teaching to a culture of learning;
🥥 Telling oral futures, stories of how we imagine we will be in a decade or two and working together toward those stories;
🥥 How more and more of us realize we are at a tipping point, opening hope for change toward more education for sustainability (and perhaps regeneration)
