Mobile Learning

At the center of BFI’s educational mission are the artifacts and concepts that embody Fuller’s life work. With an emphasis on global trends and local needs, whole system thinking, and critical inquiry of Nature’s fundamental principles, BFI develops and deploys mobile learning environments with modular program components utilizing Fuller’s structural artifacts and methodologies. These educational programs are available in the forms of exhibitions, lectures, seminars, workshops and rigorous hands-on training.
