We are bringing the emerging Teal paradigm into schools. Teal schools are human-centered, purpose-driven and highly suited for our complex, fast-evolving world. They develop childrens self-love, empathy and true potential. Teachers’ wellbeing is a natural part of the system. A Teal school system will have impact on all levels of society, from individual happiness to social impact on a global level.More on Teal
JOIN OUR MISSION
We are looking for our soul tribe!
If you think it is time for a radical change in how we as a society think about schools, learning and education, towards a human-centric perspective, we wish to connect with you. There are many ways to join and support us. If you wish to co-create we recommend connecting with us through our Slack account.
Don’t miss meeting with us! We hold meet-ups in Stockholm, Sweden (we paused this due to the pandemic).
You can also set up your own Teal School meetings to discuss the Teal paradigm and the School of the Future and we will put it in our event calendar.
You can find us on meetup.com
is changing, fast. The technological development makes it hard to even imagine what our children will work with 20-30 years
from now. Still most schools stay the same. And even though there’s extensive research on how we function as human beings, about what makes us happy and motivated, both teachers and children are struggling and mental health issues among young are increasing.
It is time for a school that is based on human needs and holistic human development. Social emotional development as well as cognitive. Individualised learning processes based on internal motivation, self-leadership and self-paced mastery learning. And teachers / learning guides that are aware of the importance of close relationships, autonomy and joy in the process of learning.
And it is time for a school that recognises that standardised processes directed towards a “non-standard” world is not rational, no matter how accustomed we have become to them. The complexity in the world requires flexibility, creativity and co-creation, by reflective, open-minded and responsible people.
We firmly believe that the industrial paradigm which schools are built upon today has passed it’s expiration date, and that it’s time to look towards the new paradigm that is emerging. The industrial paradigm is production-oriented, and humans are basically seen as resources in a huge machine. The emerging paradigm is human-oriented, and the organisations are seen as living organisms, sensing their surroundings and needs, and adapting fast and painlessly.
This paradigm is called Teal.
