Education throughout the world is enmeshed in three competing and parallel trends:
- There is a movement “back” towards standardization;
- The system is breaking up as competing alternatives emerge; and
- A radically new approach is trying to emerge.
One key to dealing effectively with these trends – at both local and regional levels – is to have a deep understanding of how all people learn naturally. The starting point that we offer is our Brain/Mind Principles of Natural Learning. They have been used and cited countless times on every continent since first being published in 1990. They are also constantly checked against leading edge research.
