Passion for Lifelong Learning and Mobile Education
It would be impossible to have a conference on mobile without showing how these hand-held devices will change the way we educate the youth of today – and tomorrow.
At the first MLOVE USA, we heard from both a leading pioneer in education reform and a 17-year-old girl heading towards adulthood during an era where more and more of our lives are literally, in the palm of our hands.
Finland’s Aape Pohjavirta is currently developing Inclusion.fi, a global initiative designed to change both teaching and learning through mobile technology. Aape believes the fragmentation and continued emphasis on assessment testing found in United States’ education policy will guarantee zero impact on the nation’s future.
“In today’s world, data is everything, We can find data anytime and everywhere,” says Aape. “We teach something that has been decided is good for us.”
In the U.S., we give data, the relations of which make it informative, the data patterns that make it knowledge. We teach that only understanding this data, and experience, will create wisdom.
If we know everything, we must change the way we teach. We need to teach how to ask the right questions, not what to ask. We need to teach that the answers are ever-changing, and how to use these evolving “solutions” in the best-possible manner.
“Wisdom must be taught. We need to show understandable patterns of information that are formed with knowledge, regardless of the data available.”
17-year-old MLOVE Teen Camp veteran Antonia Neidhardt can access all sorts of data from her laptop, her tablet, her phone – but now what?
“We have access to everything,” says Antonia. “Where are all the ideas?”
Antonia wants to change the world, and she longs for this to be more than a lofty, youthful ambition. She’s looking towards today’s adults to help provide her with some direction on where to go and how to do it.
There are so many things I can’t do that I want to, but you can, and there are so many others in the world who cannot do it either.
There are now over 7 Billion people living on this planet. How many of them share Antonia and Aape’s passion to be the change they wish to see in the world?
“Over 99% answer NO when asked if they are doing something to make a change in the world,” says Antonia. “That’s only 70,000 people aspiring to make a difference. 70,000 is nothing.”
No matter how old we are, we can recognize the ways we can start taking now to make a difference. The world and knowledge, they are both fluid. Ever-changing. Evolving.
Education drives passion. So why would anyone ever want to stop learning?
