I know why public school education has failed public school students since the time of Bloom's modified Carnegie Unit teaching model.

The resolutions are presented in the Educational Trinity Instructional Manual, 10 Immutable Laws of Education, The Vocabulary Loop---the foundation for all education, and the P1 P2 E D E Instructional Manual.

I'd like to read the studies you refer to which say that the printing press had less of a disruptive impact than people think. The Wikipedia article you link to says this:

The arrival of mechanical movable type printing in Europe in the Renaissance introduced the era of mass communication, which permanently altered the structure of society. The relatively unrestricted circulation of information and (revolutionary) ideas transcended borders, captured the masses in the Reformation and threatened the power of political and religious authorities. The sharp increase in literacy broke the monopoly of the literate elite on education and learning and bolstered the emerging middle class. Across Europe, the increasing cultural self-awareness of its peoples led to the rise of proto-nationalism, and accelerated the development of European vernaculars, to the detriment of Latin's status as lingua franca.

Hi Phil,

Great talk! The whole time I was just sitting over here loving all the validation, fist pumping, karate kicking, and screaming, "YES yes yes YES!". I'm sure you understand, as someone who started in K-12 curriculum development and shifted into adult learning for business professionals, trying to transition the heavily rooted K-12 learning science/models (project-based learning, peer education, scenario/case-based learning, etc.), I have faced a lot of opposition. Even with white paper research supporting the pitch to people who claim they are data-driven decision makers!!! It's because of exactly what you said (fewer words on the call, and I wrote down the quote), "We're building AI to accelerate and automate a broken process." My one-liner when approaching executives right now on the matter of AI is that we're so focused on efficiency and not efficacy.

I would love to hear your thoughts on something though. Peer education and the concept of teaching others as high retention exercises and high levels of cognitive rigor... This concept works EXTREMELY well for me, because a lot of science on adult learning leans on leveraging personal+context-based experience, and peer education scales that concept drastically. Where do you think AI fits in with these strategies that rely on authentic peer experience? I get caught up with the concept of authentic personal experience with AI.

Have loved following you the past few months, thank you so much for all of the thought and content you have shared!
