Second Day of Educamp had less people at the beginning, and ramped up over the course of the day. Conversation was very organic with few formal flow considerations.

 

  • Community Colleges
    • Good talk that illustrates the growth of community colleges from highschools.
    • Talked about how some people circumnavigate highschool (wish I did this) by attending JCs and getting GEDs.
  • Generalism vs. Specialism
    • It seemed that we concluded that the labels of generalist and specialist were very misleading and mainly erroneous.
    • Institutional coercion to specialize is a bad thing.
  • Our Idea Of Education Is Fundamentally Wrong
    • Talked about some of the history of our modern education system.
    • We need to integrate more inspiration and passion into the systems we come to build.
  • Talk about Geometric Algebra, Inferential Calculus, and Systems Theory
    • Scientific development has led to very intuitive languages that are still ensconced in ivory towers.
    • As it is, we learn "rudiments --> non-intuitive formal languages --> intuitive formal languages", we should shift to "rudiments --> intuitive formal languages --> non-intuitive formal languages"
  • Meta Conversation Addressing Educamp
    • I pointed out the shameful absence of young people (highschool/gradeschool). So we are going to contact some organizations to see if we can get them to come to the next Educamp.
    • Thought of explicitly inviting experts in relevent fields, though we would not guarantee them slots, as this is not the Barcamp way.
