Interconnectedness

What is Interconnectedness?

This course is recommended for early adolescent to adult.

In a series of dynamic group discussions scaffolded by mental activities, videos and challenging questions, explore what interconnectedness is and how humans are interconnected with each other and with nature. Each class explores one vital concept in the history of human interconnectedness from seminal philosophers such as Aristotle, Locke, Durkheim, Hayek and scientists Ray Kurzweil and Michio Kaku.

Driving questions (there are many) include: What is interconnectedness? What are the minimum necessary things needed for us to know interconnectedness when we see it? What are the many different forms of interconnectedness? What is the “extended Order?” What are the implications of Artificial Intelligence and other ground breaking scientific trends for interconnectedness? Prepare for your mind to enter the fourth dimension!

Robert believes that these things are indispensible in education: 1) A balanced exploration of competing, alternative explanations for things rather than an agenda chosen and driven by the teacher; 2) Complete student self-direction; 3) The teacher should have an attitude that teacher and students are learning about the subject matter as partners. He is in awe of those researchers of human learning and development who have been the most thorough in their work. At the top of that list he places Dr. Maria Montessori.
