Last month, the collaborators of the Knowmad Society project celebrated the one-year anniversary of the launch of the book, Knowmad Society. In the open, Creative Commons-licensed volume, nine authors from three continents, ranging from academics to business leaders, share their visions for the future of learning and work. Educational and organizational implications are uncovered, experiences are shared, and the contributors explore what it’s going to take for individuals, organizations, and nations to succeed in Knowmad Society.
The book is available as a free download or is available for purchase in print, and readers are invited to remix their own editions of Knowmad Society. In the first year since the release of the book, tens of thousands of copies have been downloaded by people worldwide. Thank you to everybody who made this project a success!
Some of our favorite quotes from the book
The soft skills have become the hard skills.
1.0 schools cannot teach 3.0 kids.
Learning in #KnowmadSociety is about the experience of being alive as much as it’s about the study of life.
We need to train kids HOW to think, not WHAT to think.
Education is more than schooling.
What we really need is an INNOVUTION!
The enablers of the 20th century are the disablers of the 21st century.
Knowmads is not a dress rehearsal, we create real stuff.
