Perkins: Teach how consensus emerges, that voices are missing, we don’t hear common interests, misperceived polarization.

via TweetDeck

Perkins: We need a lot of well-informed jurists in society more than advocates. We need to teach complexity of public sphere.

via TweetDeck

Perkins - Tangle of misinformation requires a lot of time to understand and drives toward short-cut decision making.

via TweetDeck

Perkins - Short-cuts to decision-making on messy public issues: consider identity group, experts/gurus, tax implications, safety.

via TweetDeck

mattgreenfield We do not educate very well for the practice and enactment of citizenship and the finding of truth in the wild

Perkins: We teach critical thinking, but should we also help students learn to curate social media to find “truth in the wild”

via TweetDeck

.@DrHowardGardner: Right-sized citizenship — little “c” middle “C” and big “C” — is different for different agesol

via TweetDeck

.@DrHowardGardner: Evolution may prepare us for “neighborly morality,” but not for morality in a global context.

via TweetDeck

.@DrHowardGardner: Is globalism continuous? Optimist or pessimist? I patriotism changing? What is citizenship?
