Description A Theory and Method frameworks for poverty transformation in instructional design with US and African cases.
Full Session Description :
Transformation of people from poverty and trauma must transcend current intellectual academic fads of “reflection” and “relativeness” in order to alter core conflicts within the experiential frameworks of the learner. The worlds of entitlement and oppressed live in two separate worlds that must be addressed before curriculum like Common Core or STEM can take serious root.
Based on both US and African programs, this session illustrates how transformational collaboration in combination with personalized experiential (PBL) learning can be woven into instructional design. The session dives into Dewey Friere and Knowles Adult Learning theories and how we can alter an individual’s negative frameworks about lifelong learning.
This session is a segment from the Global Learning Framework course that provides methods about how to easily design transformational learning experiences. Cases will be presented from a UNESCO grant for digital storytelling, a massive African mission with 50 farms, a large Kenyan school and the Lost Boys of South Sudan. Curriculum design from a US homeless woman’s learning center will also be discussed in conjunction with the hidden trauma within US schools.
