  11. The Penny Conference 2012 http://www.skillshare.com/penny#/about In the 18th century … coffee houses were known as Penny Universities. For a mere penny, people entered a communal space overflowing with ideas, literature, intellectual conversations and inspired debates. Here, men and women came to improve their minds, challenge their mindsets, and build a roadmap for change.

  12. Penny Conference Agenda • Together, we’ll answer one simple question… if we had to re-invent education from the ground-up for the 21st century, what would it look like and how can we create that future together? • Conversations and debates are highly encouraged. Action is required. Join us to create a roadmap that will change the way our kids’ kids’ kids will learn.

  15. Epistemological agility “The capacity for moving seamlessly across disparate knowledge domains in ways that make for better living, learning and earning” Involves: • The ability to select, re-shuffle, combine, or synthesise already existing facts, ideas, and skills in original ways through skills like pattern recognition, creation of analogies and mental models, the ability to cross domains, the exploration of alternatives, knowledge of schema for problem-solving and fluency of thought • ‘Knowing what to do when you don’t know what to do’ (useful ignorance) • Learning from the instructive complications of error-making • Anticipating the pleasure of the rigour of trans-disciplinary thinking

  16. 6. Distractibility is a boon to learning, not a mental illness

  17. 7. Effective pedagogy exploits the productive tension between intentionality and distractibility.
