i don't think there is a problem with "content", the issue is when there is lack of consent or cohersion
Arthur Morris
28:19
cohersion?
Amanda MacKenzie (she/her)
28:22
I agree. Content is necessary in almost all learning. The question is who chooses the content.
Amanda MacKenzie (she/her)
28:31
Coersion
Bruno (he/his)
28:40
coercion sorry
Arthur Morris

I thought it was a new, alternative education word I should know.

I am from a Muslim family; in Islam when people die they are buried within 24 hours. Back in the day we listened to the radio in the morning for obituaries in case someone we knew had passed away, so we could attend the funeral - this was back in the day when even landline phones were hard to come by

Facts cannot all be searched on an electronic device in the moment of need.
Arthur Morris
51:51
moments of need can include regular conversation.
Joules Perradian
52:19
^ That's true, too!
Amanda MacKenzie (she/her)
53:15
That is true, though I often look things up in the moment. But it's hard to predict which particular pieces of information will be needed in a given situation.
Amanda MacKenzie (she/her)
53:38
We spend SO MUCH of a regular school day teaching facts that most of us will never use or need.
Arthur Morris
53:52
Agreed.
Arthur Morris
57:01
Seems to me communication involves coding ideas into symbols (sensible in some way), transmitting those symbols, receiving, and decoding them. Coding and decoding requires knowledge of shared meanings.
Amanda MacKenzie (she/her)
57:07
I'm not saying no one needs facts. I am saying that there is no standard list of facts that everyone needs.
Arthur Morris
57:20
I see.
Sifaan Zavahir

navigating misinformation / disinformation is going to be a major survival skill
Sifaan Zavahir
01:05:57
(maybe already is)
Bruno (he/his)
01:06:41
agreed Sifaan
Arthur Morris
01:06:44
Yes! I agree, Sifaan.
Amanda MacKenzie (she/her)
01:07:12
For sure. And resisting pressure to accept disinformation.
Sifaan Zavahir
01:09:58
Being able to question / challenge authority figures is important - so in educational contexts teachers/staff must allow their viewpoints to be challenged/debated
Joules Perradian
01:10:12
^ Hell yes!
Monica Brase
01:12:11
Amanda...100% agree!!!
Amanda MacKenzie (she/her)
