Infographic Design - Education and the Good Life


Issue 8 of CATALYST explored the various definitions of the Good Life, and those who challenged accepted models of creating it. While putting together content for this issue, I was inspired by Bruce Mau’s book The Third Teacher, and Marshall McLuhan’s definition of education, and shifting instruction into playful discovery in order to create a good life for children.

In researching the particular ways that children are vulnerable in school environments, their learning stimuli and the various elements of a sustainable school, it became clear that while initiatives like the Center for Child Honoring exist, it is a process of steps that will move the cycle forward, and create a good life through education, one child at a time.
