really liked it
bookshelves: education, non-fiction, personal-development

There have been many strides and movement in changing how we learn, how education is delivered, and most of us are on board - the history and the conceptual background to it all, is what Rose's book is about. Rose makes a compelling case to move away from one-dimensional thinking, essentialist thinking, and normative thinking to focus on and recognise the potential of the individual.

While there is much talk of personalised learning, micro-credentialing, and competency-based learning, (mentioned in the book as well) this book take us through an interesting history and understanding of how we got here. And that’s a much richer context to all the work that most of us are involved in.

Highly recommended.
