The 1st Lesson to Be Unlearned – Confusion

August 5, 2023 at 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm WEST

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected


In the first salon of this series, host João Mateus will explore the first lesson we must unlearn as adults to become better human beings: confusion. The current educational system promotes it, and we want to design an alternative. Can you help? Come share your own experience and help design a better system!

John Taylor Gatto, in his speech “The 7 Lesson Schoolteacher”, writes:

The first lesson I teach is confusion. Everything I teach is out of context… I teach the unrelating of everything. I teach disconnections.”

In this first Salon, we’re going to explore the relationship between confusion and the current educational system, trying to find a better alternative.

We’ll ask questions such as:

  • Why is confusion taught in schools?
  • Is it purposeful?
  • How can we unlock clarity for our students in the different decisions they have to make?

Join João and come help create a Modern Golden Age in Education!
