Controlling a complex system is rarely as effective as allowing it to self-organize: markets work better than planning committees; diverse ecosystems are more robust than monocultures. What would it mean to apply this idea to education?
I love this kind of thinking - appreciating the properties of complex ecosystem, trusting in self-organisation and emergence by gently influencing incentives. A great use of DAOs and Web3 too. Rewarding kids for teaching other kids would be another approach to reinforce the teacher's understanding while building people up.
But... The prevailing system is and linear thinking are entrenched, and so difficult to change. Great post.
I believe we all have a natural proclivity to pursue mastery, we just need better structures to help draw it out.
