Example text

I want to question easy assumptions about how our efforts in each moment come to add up to the accomplishments of the day. Most of all, I want to ask whether this view of learning as ‘becoming a village’ can really be accommodated by the present-day institution of the school, or whether we should begin looking at more diverse systems to support not just learning, but getting an education. Culture, History and the Activities of Learning Many chapters in this book discuss the basic concepts of culture, history, activity and learning.

Over time we learn that there is nothing worthwhile we can do without a tool someone else has made, without combining ways of working we’re comfortable with and ways we’re not but others are, without taking into account viewpoints that are unfamiliar or unpleasant, without finding a way through conflict. What we do when we learn is to enter into social activities. It takes a long lifetime to ‘become a village’. Some routines can be learned in minutes, performed in seconds, but they only make sense when integrated into activities that may last for hours and are in turn small links in chains of interdependent projects that keep the village running and changing over the course of our lives and the community’s history.

More obvious still are multimedia such as television, film, and the computerized animation, sound, and video hypermedia that are likely to take over from traditional media for many purposes during the lifetimes of today’s students. Students desperately need to know how to critically interpret combinations of words, pictures, maps, diagrams and specialized symbolic expressions. They need to understand that there are different conventions for doing so in different fields and in different genres. And increasingly they need to know how and when and why to combine these media to express their ideas.
