A Wired, yes that Wired, held their first Wired by Design, bringing leading designers to Sausalito and Marin to share new and interesting ideas around a variety of topics. Stanford d.school Executive Director, Sarah Stein Greenberg was among the speakers, delivering the four prompts of Stanford 2025, the byproduct of a year-long design effort conducted by students, faculty, staff and outside collaborators here at Stanford.
A recap of her talk is now available on Wired, so definitely check it out. Here's a snippet:
“I believe this is a problem we should all be interested in,” Greenberg said during a presentation at WIRED by Design. “We’re producing a generation of students that are very highly structured, but entering an increasingly ambiguous world—the world of Ebola and ISIS and climate change and data security breaches.”
If you want to learn more about Stanford 2025, you can find the four prompts -- Axis Flip, Open Loop University, Purpose Learning and Paced Education -- at 2025.stanford.edu. We're also collecting "missions" here on the whiteboard. So, let us know what mission you would choose if, instead of majors, every college student was called on to declare a mission.
