Designing For Learning

This is one of my more recent Twitter posts: >How do we redesign communities & institutions around the neuroscience that capacity for learning increases with age?

An interesting question. What would these look like in a culture where people are expected to be learning abled instead of learning disabled? The question’s significance looms in the unprecedented growth of older citizens across the globe.

There is enough actionable evidence that quality of life in the third trimester of life reflects capacity for learning. And learning must become the spark to new design principles. Think technologies, built environments, retirement careers, health care and well-being indicators in communities and regions.
