Before we immerse ourselves in the readings and experiences this course offers, take some time to imagine your idea if the ideal education and sketch it out in words, diagrams, images, collage, or any other forms that express your vision. As you sketch, consider the assumptions you make and how you came to believe is this ideal. Feel free to invite people (classmates, colleagues, friends, family, children, elders) to make their own sketches so that you can share and discuss your varied visions for the ideal education.
And yet here you are engaging with the
Foundations of Education — millennia of
educational thought, philosophy, and praxis.
