Sorry it's been so long! We're back with a Twitter-based discussion about Kio Stark's Don't Go Back to School, available from her site and from Amazon worldwide.
About the Book
There's lots of good fodder for discussion. From a review:
"The book is based largely on Stark's own personal research (which I would best describe as ethnographic research in which she discovered four facts garnered from her interviews that are shared by almost every successful form of learning outside of school:
- It isn't done alone.
- For many professions, credentials aren't necessary, and the processes for getting credentials are changing.
- The most effective, satisfying learning is learning that is more likely to happen outside of school.
- People who are happiest with their learning process and most effective at learning new things - in any educational environment - are people who are learning for the right reasons and who reflect on their own way of learning to figure out which processes and methods work best for them."

We'll begin on January 19, 7 am ET, and post a few new questions every few days. #lrnbk is asynchronous so you can join in whenever it's convenient.
This time chat hosts are @JaneBozarth, Mark Britz @britz, Helen Blunden @ActivateLearn Rachel Burnham @BurhnamLandD and @Michelle Ockers. We hope having hosts from all over the globe will ensure that conversation stays active and lively across time zones.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
