Venessa: Superhero School An Epicenter for Disruptive Innovation
"I put a short post up a few days ago in an online group I’m in, with the above image and this brief description:

superhero school. center for disruptive innovation. continuous learning zone. collective intelligence. live/work startup incubator. community center. hackerspace. makerlab. autonomous zone. permaculture and sustainable food production. cooperatively owned communications infrastructure. resilience. r&d; lab. a place for creative troublemakers. hudson valley. i want this to exist.

It blew up to over 100 comments in less than 48 hours, with many people sharing their own thoughts and plans and existing initiatives to create similar things in their areas. I was inspired! Is this an idea whose time has come?"

Uffe Elbaek on social entrepreneurship | Education Futures
"When posed with the ques­tion of which skills and com­pe­ten­cies are crit­i­cal for suc­cess­ful so­cial en­tre­pre­neur­ship, Uffe cited four key com­pe­ten­cies from the KaosPi­lots pro­gram:

1. Mean­ing: If you don’t un­der­stand what you’re do­ing and why you are do­ing it, your ac­tiv­ity will fail. It is im­por­tant to cre­ate mean­ing through what we do.

2. Re­la­tion­ship: To­day’s so­ci­ety re­quires more team­work and so­phis­ti­cated com­mu­ni­ca­tion and prob­lem-solv­ing skills. Build­ing good re­la­tion­ships with the peo­ple you work with is crit­i­cal.

3. Change: You have to be able to un­learn what you al­ready know so that you can learn what is im­por­tant in a chang­ing world.

4. Ac­tion: You need to pro­duce solid, vis­i­ble re­sults."

What Innovative Schools in Higher Ed are Doing Right « The Learning Lab
"# Action learning. First you experience, then you talk about your experiences. That’s how learning happens naturally, outside schools, and it is how these schools work as well...

# Reflection. When you start with action, you get great material for reflection and dialogue. Creating a common understanding of what they experience and having a dialogue about how they can act in the future in similar situations is effective learning.

# Interest in students. The students get to have great influence of the projects carried out during the courses. These schools act as if they are interested in the people that attend them. They know that a great way to awake interest is by showing interest.

# Getting to know yourself. Understanding yourself better, how you work with others and what you need to thrive is a big part of at least Kaospiloterna...

# Process knowledge..."

Most unusual college in the world: Ode Magazine, October 2005 [.pdf]
"At KaosPilots, young people (starting at 21) learn how to set up and carry out projects, sell their ideas, put together a business plan, stimulate creativity, work cooperatively, inspire others and themselves, take advantage of unexpected events, remain open to new ideas, bring mind and body into balance, and keep their heads cool and their hearts warm. They learn, in fact, how to realize their dreams." ... "“KaosPilots are streetwise and risk- taking,” Elbaek says. “And above all, they have social compassion and the inclination to adopt a helpful attitude toward the people they work with and for. You should never underestimate that influence.”"
