This track consists of many ideas, but they are ideas which call forth new ideas. This track speaks to the necessity of ideas for healing a fractured view of learning; ideas which call for healing the fracturing that has occurred across countries, disciplines and learners. As Whitehead noted, “our existence is more than a succession of bare facts” and this track looks at ways to connect, renew and reimagine our fundamental approaches to education and learning. We must question and challenge the wisdom of educational policy being based on economic competition and finding success in a globalized economy. Instead, cooperation and collaboration within this framework should be our new driving forces. There are many world issues to tackle, how is education preparing students? Is the American Dream a renewable source of inspiration? The US education system must come together in supporting the education of the next generation of globally competent leaders. Our children need a new dream, a Global Dream. We must give students the tools to heal the lands, so they may plant new ideals. To reimagine and reinvent education means to have the courage to step back and take a thoughtful look at how we see ourselves, our children and our responsibilities in a truly connected world. At its core, modern education has been about fracturing the world. We have broken learning into disciplines, broken disciplines into subjects and subjects into a series of fragmented pieces in fragmented places. Each of these fractured elements has been divided along national, state, local and school lines. Tom Welch, Brian Flannery, Dane Ramshaw and David Marshak are among the educational visionaries who will be nourishing Pando Populus with new ideas to contribute to our growing, evolving, learning community.
