Is there a means of "listening to THEM" as Ernesto Sirolli urges one to do.? Is there a central education idea marketplace/clearing house?
How can someone outside of the slums listen to students and teachers and other stakeholders in education in a local area to design appropriate and relevant educational artifacts and systems that feed the children and not just the hippos? Should outsiders just mind their own cement business and leave the oil pumping to the on-site Alaskan experts?
I'm looking for informative answers about existing institutions and websites as well as proposals regarding how to match designers and ideas with specific regions. E.g. Education Automation" speech by Buckminster Fuller to a University planning group in the 1960's. H.G. Well's celebrity teacher videos and school in a box. Somebody's idea to ship a container of mystic writing pads/magic slates etc.
