Zachary Stein: Who gets to decide the stories we tell about ourselves?

In this episode, I speak with Zachary Stein. Zak has published two books: Social Justice and Educational Measurement, which traces the history of standardized testing and its ethical implications, and Education in a Time Between Worlds, which grapples with the relations between schooling and technology more broadly. Zak is a co-founder of The Consilience Project, which is dedicated to improving public sensemaking and building a movement to radically upgrade digital media landscapes. He is a scholar at the Ronin Institute, where he  researches the relations between education, human development, and the evolution of civilizations, and Zak serves as Co-President and Academic Director of the activist think-tank at the Center for Integral Wisdom, where he writes and teaches at the edges of integral meta-theory. We discuss:

🥥 How learning is not a finite journey: the more we learn, the more we are aware of all that we don't know;

🥥 How teachers should model the emotional side of being a good learner;

🥥 The importance of establishing the legitimacy of the vocabularies that are given to us to tell the stories about ourselves.
