Episode 18 Fireside Chat

重庆第18 期炉边谈话:

The phrase “think outside the box” has become synonymous for calls of innovation. It is often associated with critical thinking and is designed to inspire solutions that supposedly do not follow established line of thinking. However, thinking outside the box still recognizes the existence of the box (i.e. the established problem or the established paradigm). The Founders of Educators Park, Dr. Maskara and Dr. Chen, propose a slightly different viewpoint. In their opinion, what effective innovation often needs is not just thinking outside the box but breaking the box. Perhaps that when one thinks in a way such that established problem (i.e. the way a problem has been defined / widely accepted) is not recognized at face value. Rather, the present situation is taken as is and analysis is performed anew with healthy disregard for existing constraints in search of the root cause behind the problem. Then solutions to address the newly defined problem within the newly established constraints is crafted with some level of ingenuity. The resulting change is often further-reaching and world-changing.

“跳出盒子思考”已经成为了创新的代名词。它通常与批判性思维联系在一起,旨在激发那些不遵循既定思维方式的解决方案。然而,跳出盒子思考仍然承认盒子的存在(即既定的问题或既定的范式)。教育家Park的创始人Maskara博士和Chen博士提出了一个稍微不同的观点。在他们看来,有效的创新往往需要的不是跳出盒子思考,而是打破盒子。也许当一个人以这样一种方式思考问题时(即一个问题被定义/被广泛接受的方式),这种方式在表面上是不被承认的。相反,以现状为出发点,重新进行分析,以健康的方式无视现有的限制,寻找问题背后的根本原因。然后,在新建立的约束内处理新定义的问题的解决方案将在一定程度上别出心裁地设计出来。由此产生的变化往往影响深远,改变世界。

It is widely recognized that innovation happens in numerous ways and falls on a spectrum from marginal change to ground-breaking concept. However, even a small change in the existing method, process, concept, etc. can result in the efficiency gains. At the same time, a paradigm shifting innovation like the invention of the wheel or internet can change the global landscape beyond recognition.

人们普遍认为,创新的方式多种多样,其范围从边际变化到突破性的概念。然而,即使是对现有方法、流程、概念等的一个小的改变也会导致效率的提高。与此同时,像轮子或互联网发明这样的范式转换创新可能会使全球格局发生翻天覆地的变化。

Many communities around the world are unhappy with their kids’ education. They complain about everything from poor quality teachers, to crumbling infrastructure, inadequate STEM training, segregated student body, lack of books and resources and unsafe environment. Several entrepreneurs have developed and are currently working on different solutions to address these problems for school systems, teachers, parents, and students. However, we may be better served if we were to think deeper. We have been attuned to associate education with schools but that does not have to be the case. The basic need here is to efficiently and effectively transfer the accumulated knowledge of mankind to the next generation and to teach it necessary survival skills, communication skills, and societal interaction skills. In the current landscape, so much resources and huge sums of money to build and operate schools, and teachers are often deemed to be underpaid, underappreciated and often underperforming at the same time. There is wide disparity between the quality of education based on location and resources. But what if an entrepreneur were to start with the basic need and the current education landscape and look for solutions taking into account all the students maturity, natural disposition, background, and diversity needs, among others. Such an approach could possibly reduce the price of investments in schools. Individuals best suited to impart the relevant skills could do so in varied settings and environment, possibly even at their residences, places of work or underutilized public places. On the other hand, if an entrepreneur were to attempt to tackle identified problems like lack of resources or inadequate STEM training, they would still be working within the construct of a school. Maybe "schooling" needs to be deconstructed.

世界上许多社区对孩子的教育不满意。他们抱怨一切,从劣质的教师,到摇摇欲坠的基础设施,STEM培训的不足,隔离的学生群体,缺乏书籍和资源,以及不安全的环境。一些企业家已经开发并正在为学校系统、教师、家长和学生研究解决这些问题的不同方案。然而,如果我们思考得更深入,我们可能会得到更好的服务。我们已经习惯于将教育与学校联系起来,但情况不一定如此。

这里的基本需要是有效地将人类积累的知识传授给下一代,并传授必要的生存技能、沟通技能和社会交往技能。在目前的情况下,这么多的资源和巨额的资金来建设和运营学校,教师往往被认为是低工资,不受重视,并往往在同一时间表现不佳。基于地理位置和资源的教育质量差距很大。但是,如果一个企业家从基本需求和当前的教育形势出发,考虑到他们所有学生的成熟程度、天性、背景和多样性等需求,寻找解决方案,结果会怎样呢?这种方法可能会降低学校投资的价格。最适合传授相关技能的个人可以在不同的环境和环境中这样做,甚至可能在他们的住所、工作场所或未充分利用的公共场所。另一方面,如果一个企业家试图解决已经确定的问题,如缺乏资源或STEM培训不足,他们仍然会在学校的框架内工作。也许“学校教育”需要被解构。
