It has been a while since any of us have seen any life here at Intrepid Classroom. Sai has raised some interesting questions about one of my favorite people in the whole world, Ken Kesey, so I hope to write a post about him and his movement soon, but you can share your thoughts with her at her discussion forum here.
I don’t have much time right now but I know that I (and some others) have not really been participating in the Ning and IntrepidClassroom, but I think this is partly because we have not got a central goal.
To that I say this: The goal has always been to focus on the following topics: conflict resolution, global sustainability, peace activism, music and art as agent for social change, technology as a tool for social justice. The hope is to create a fluid, organic curriculum that engages all participants.
What that looks like depends on you the participants. My hope has always been that you, the members of Intrepid Classroom, would direct your own learning without the need for concrete assignments. I have suggested several projects, but most have been ignored.
The goal is for us to learn how to create a community of learners who work together for the simple reason of leanring from each other and teaching others. If you have an idea, share it with the Ning and get someting started. With the new chat feature we should be ablke to communicate more easily.
