Creative Learning and the Future of Work

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Good article, with a focus on the '4Ps' of creative learning (quoted):

  • Projects - We learn best when we are actively working on projects - generating new ideas, designing prototypes, making improvements, and creating final products.
  • Peers - Learning flourishes as a social activity, with people sharing ideas, collaborating on projects, and building on one another’s work.
  • Passion - When we focus on things we care about, we are likely to work longer and harder, to persist in the face of challenges, and to learn more in the process.
  • Play - Learning involves playful experimentation — trying new things, tinkering with materials, testing boundaries, taking risks, iterating again and again.
