The Meaningful Learning podcast is about designing and delivering innovative experiences that provide just in time learning. It brings together a community of provocateurs who understand that learning is both a personal and a social experience, and can only be meaningful if it has an impact on the learner and their community. We believe in purposeful thinking and action for positive impact on the welfare of the bio-collective.

S2E11:The Human Development Revolution (ft. Thom Markham, Ph.D.)

This is a particularly nourishing episode of the Meaningful Learning podcast by Coconut Thinking. Our guest is Dr. Thom Markham, considered one of the founding fathers of Project Based Learning. Thom Markham is an educator by trade, a positive psychologist by training, and a global entrepreneur dedicated to expanding educator mindsets in service to a positive future. This conversation is the first of I hope many amongst a nascent community of thinkers and doers who believe that we need to shift our values away from anthropocentrism toward biocentrism, toward purpose that benefits other living beings. We had the Agricultural Revolution, the Industrial Revolution... now it's time for another revolution, one where humans develop beyond themselves. In this conversation, Thom and I discuss:

  • How the neuro-cognitive model we use is breaking down
  • Social Growth Mindset
  • Sustainability as the driving standard for learning and doing.

Join us for another episode of the Meaningful Learning podcast by Coconut Thinking.

Erratum: at the end I say "beyond ecocentrism" when I meant "buying anthropocentrism!" Sorry about the confusion.
