It is not about us. It’s about you. It’s about your future. You’ve been told an education is your best bet in terms of long-term security and happiness. You have been inundated since childhood with propaganda proclaiming the importance of making good grades and working your way to the top. But as you grow older, it becomes apparent only the fear of failure pushes people to jump through our country’s gauntlet of out-of-date educational hoops.
High school. (Job?) Junior college. (Job?) Vocational college. (Job?) Undergraduate school. (Job?) Internship. (Job?) Graduate school. (Job?)
Pervasive standardized testing and evaluation. Crippling student debt. Inflexible curricula. Seismic shifts in technology and business. Limited job opportunities.
It’s all bullshit, and you know it.
Sometimes along the path you ask yourself, “Why am I doing this?” but you move on without seeing your countless options.
That’s where we come into the picture.
SixFinger Learning (SFL) analyzes and evangelizes successful traditional and alternative approaches to learning. Our primary goal is to motivate individuals and institutions to demand more of themselves and each other because, to be frank, the customary roles of student, instructor, employee and boss have lost all their relevancy and yet we refuse to admit it.
Our education systems are lethargic and they all too often fail in providing its students the evolving attitudes, knowledge and skills that are required for the unknown job titles and industry practices of the future.
The charade needs to stop. We have to open our mouths and even make some people very uncomfortable. Right. Fucking. Now.
Join us or watch us. Either way, it’s going to be a hell of a ride.
