Human Technologies offers schools a critical lens through which to approach twenty first century human society. Rather than focusing on individual issues or concerns, HT offers students, parents, teachers and leaders a chance to consider that most central of questions: how can I thrive in a complex world? Starting with evolution and Big History, HT invites learners to consider all human practice as the result of an accrual of technologies, deposited in layers over time. Each of these technologies, be it handwriting, eye contact, mobile phones or prayer, can be deconstructed, understood, adapted and harnessed for use. Applied within and across the curriculum, Human Technologies offers schools concrete answers to some of today and tomorrow’s most significant challenges. In this workshop learners will be introduced to the fundamentals of HT, and through a series of practical tasks, will be asked to reconsider their own understandings of what it means to be human.
