BOOOTSTRAPPING KIT TO SELF-LEARN
Guy Claxton identified “ taughtitis” as an unintended consequence of learning at School ( https://youtu.be/JxWybvns1jg ).
Thomas Fray ( https://youtu.be/E3bUn9-j0yo ) said if we insert a teacher between us and what we need to learn, we can’t learn fast enough to be ready for the future.
Yuval Noah Harari has drawn attention ( https://youtu.be/OMDlfNWM1fA ) to the possibility of falling into the “useless class” without a concerted effort …..
The NEP 2030 at para 4.6 has emphasised the criticality of “ learning to learn”, but not much help in how to become an autonomous learner has been made available.
To respond to this need I have developed a WhatsApp course on “ Learning to Self-Learn” ( MMPant.com/l2sl).
I have developed this approach to becoming an independent learner, that is based on a providing the learner with a number of resource kits to learn on one’s own a variety of subjects/skills.
Self-learning is listed as “ Swadhyaya” amongst the 5 Niyamas of Patanjali Yoga, and is therefore our tradition long before the distortions created by the British rulers. In order to succeed and flourish in the future we need to embrace the emerging technologies of AI and machine learning on our firm foundations.
One can get a sense of what is involved in becoming a successful self-learner by perusing the bootstrap kit for self-learning. This kit contains the following information, made available as a set of WhatsApp posts. Item 8 is the most useful in these, as it is a curated list of a number of very useful resources for self-learning:
1: What is this kit for?
2: What this kit contains?
3: Quotations on self-learning
4: How to use this kit?
5: How AI changes things?
6: When teachers were humans
7: Levels of AI empowered self-learners
8: Resources for self-learners
9: Threshold Concepts
10: What next?
