Welcome!

This is a place for conversations about what people learn from objects and moving information. What do they learn to make, to use? What do they learn to see, touch, hear, smell, and what do they name them, think about them?

Here are histories of education -- of learning and the construction of agencies that transmit culture across the generations (to paraphrase Bernard Bailyn.) That statement means that traditional histories of educational thought and of schools are as important as histories of school buildings, technologies and systems, and objects and places from which people learn -- anywhere. What does this material culture imply about the cultures we value? Such histories reveal constellations of learning filters, learning ways, and learning machines, all driven by knowledge that moves. Ideas in the order of learning that were once incised in stone emerge now in electronic pulses, here and gone in seconds.
