OWL Co-Founder Blogs About Educational Ecosystems

Adam Haigler

Sept 20, 2022

OWL's co-founder writes about the importance of using ecosystems to create powerful learning experiences.

This blog emphasizes that educators can learn valuable lessons from keystone species like beavers, whose industrious and strategic actions create thriving ecosystems. Beavers' dam-building activities restructure habitats, benefiting both the environment and humans, just as innovative educators can cultivate "learner-centered ecosystems" by strategically fostering organic learning opportunities. By adopting a "beaverish" approach, educators can create dynamic and interconnected learning environments that inspire and engage students, leading to unexpected and far-reaching educational benefits.
