EDUCATION ISN'T SUPPOSED TO BE BORING!
We only live a few decades and yet during too many of them, too many of us seem destined to spend learning skills in a mind-less and mind-numbing fashion. Why? We have marvellous brains that are designed to function extremely well given the right learning environment. But we stuff our minds with one size fits all dogfood bits of information as if it is 1848. We're better than this.
Global society requires more creative and flexible human beings, not conformist ones that have these in-born qualities drilled out. Tasks that require conformity, rule-following and obedience are increasingly done by computers and robots anyway. The more challenging tasks and new opportunities require many more highly trained original minds. Hence, it really is time to take a profound look at our education.
We see that new technologies increasingly assume those tasks that require obedience, rule-following and conformity. Human beings will be freed from such tasks and can assume ones better suited to the minds we were born with.
Aututo.com aims to better prepare us for a high tech future by reducing conformity. Hence, we develop educational initiatives like mindfuelers.com in order to raise educational expectations and change how we learn.
