Seth Godin on learning and education
What you'll learn
- How to create effective online learning
- How to avoid the pitfalls of 'edutainment'
- How to lead the way as a teacher and creator
- Care enough to want to help others level up. That's it. That's all you need.
Let's make school better.
Education created the world we live in. Enforced, top-down, compliance-based education. By definition, it's scarce, it's accredited and there are tests to prove you did what you were told.
And now, a revolution is coming. It's about learning, not education. It's about being remote, about being in teams, about choosing to level up and commiting to something important.
In this series of lectures, Seth Godin shares his forty years of experience as a teacher, with a special focus on the transformative power of a new sort of learning. He founded the altMBA, the most effective executive education of its kind, and then expanded it into Akimbo, which has more than 20,000 alumni in more than 70 countries. He's been in the weeds, working with students from the age of 6 to 80.
Now it's your turn.
Akimbo has become an independent B corp, and it's no longer owned or run by Seth, but he's using this series of lectures to share its secrets.
The challenge for attendees will be to commit enough to form cohorts, to experiment and to create their own next-generation learning interventions.
The internet changes everything, and now it's going to change education. It's up to people like you to help lead the way toward better.
