Fractal Learning / Meta Thinking

There seems to be broad agreement on the urgent need to make sure that everyone (pre-work, working, and in transition) is equipped to navigate a world disrupted by radical and accelerating changes in the future of work, caused by AI and the 4th Industrial Revolution.

This urgent imperative may open up the opportunity to reinvent education, potentially utilizing recent advances in innovation frameworks, methods and practice. These suggest that learning can be radically accelerated and democratized, in part by leveraging technology and cloud-based knowledge libraries to break down silos and traditional hierarchies. As a result it can become more fundamentally flexible, iterative and self-directed (heutagogy).

The workshop outlined below is just a proof-of-concept for what we call fractal learning. It’s the roughest of drafts, sketched in response to a challenge: can we develop a “seed methodology”, a “Minimum Viable Instruction” package which starts any individual on a learning / innovating / goal-achieving journey, spiraling out from the first iterative cycle to acquire a broad and personalized toolbox of learning and problem-solving skills.

Makers Making Change

“We connect makers to people with disabilities who need assistive technologies.”

Our new site connects Makers, People with Disabilities and Disability Professionals to one another with the goal of providing people with disabilities with access to affordable open source assistive technologies.

Over the past year, hundreds of passionate volunteers in communities across Canada and the US joined our network to volunteer their time, skills, and tools to make a difference. Now it’s time to bring our project to the next level. By Nov 30, we will have a built a network of 500 volunteer makers and 500 people with disabilities.

Our new site features:
Events listings, a geolocation “maker matching service”, and open source library of free, tested open source assistive devices – including the ability to add your projects or ideas. We will have resources for teachers, librarians or makerspaces to get involved in Makers Making Change by exploring real life applications of design, simple electronics and 3d printing.

If you can help us with this critical aspect of the project, we will be super grateful! If you have projects or ideas you’d like to submit, now is the time! We are taking this next week to pre-populate our site with projects and test it out before the public gets to see it.

Process to be involved in MMC site testing:

* Please reply to this email to let me know you want to participate

* Sign up/Login to the MMC beta site here:
https://mmcprod.wpengine.com/login/

Sign up for several accounts if you like (using different emails) and see how each type of account reacts.
For example:

* As a Maker – try out features as a maker, click “submit a build” if you have a project, click connect and type in your postal code to see if there are any people with disabilities looking for devices in your area

* As a Person with a Disability – request a build, submit an idea

* As a Disability Professional – review a device

Note: Under 3)Complete your Profile, you may want to use different names under each created account to differentiate between them

Please supply feedback here:
