LearningEmergence.net launches!

KMi’s Simon Buckingham Shum has co-founded LearningEmergence.net, a research and development website and international network, with the Systems Centre: Learning & Leadership, University of Bristol.

This collaborative venture exploits the complementary expertise of KMi’s work on social sensemaking knowledge media, with Ruth Deakin Crick’s work on 21st Century pedagogy, joining forces to drive forward our mutual interest in the future of learning in schools, universities and the workplace.

We only have modest ambitions of course… How do we weave coherently the research, practices, policies, technologies and enterprise needed to build the learning skills, habits of mind and dispositions needed for the 21st Century?

As the website explains, the approach that the network is fostering is wholistic — a critical convergence between pedagogies for deep learning, complexity theory/systems thinking, models for transformative leadership in turbulent times, and knowledge media.
