I love this image we created for our Fellowship Summit. How long has our modern design for schools been in existence? It often feels like we’ve always done school with desks in rows and a teacher in the front, students separated by age and written tests to check for learning — but the pink portion of the circle below shows that it’s only been in existence for less than 1% of human history. It is a design created for and in the image of the Industrial Era. I think of this image whenever I get a little afraid of innovation.
