unlearn; v. [the act of unlearning; verbal n, to unlearn]
1. the act of releasing old knowledge.
2. to see the world not as one would like to see it, but as it really is.
3. to be un-uninformed.
4. to acquire wisdom either by replacing old information which has been supplanted by new knowledge or, alternatively, by relinquishing known falsehoods.
Unlearning is a critical skill, especially in today’s world of rapid and accelerating change. To understand why, consider this: scientific and technical knowledge is now doubling every seven years.
Ito has applied this philosophy in his own life as well. For example, he is an avid scuba diver. Not only has Ito participated in dangerous dives in which he feeds sharks, he has become an instructor as well. As Ito points out, “they have more tools for scuba diving instructors than our teachers do in elementary schools.” Scuba diving is a great model for teaching, Ito says, because you are shown exactly why you are learning something and it is immediately actionable.
Pretty amazing video. Definitely something I would do (diving with sharks)
