Education Can’t Be Business As Usual December 1, 2010Posted by Matsu in Education, History, News and politics.
The world has changed since publicly funded education was created to prepare children by developing skills needed to earn a living and be a contributing member of society. Those changes have been slow and subtle for a very long time. Then, the technology revolution occurred. That changed everything.
There are fundamental differences in how children learn and play today — it is actually different than children of only 20 years ago. Because of those differences, we must reevaluate the educational model — it needs to be radically overhauled in order to be relevant both now and in the future.
The above video does a great job of highlighting some of the differences in how children learn today and how the outdated educational process is no longer an effective model for reaching our educational goals. Education is more important now than it ever has been. So, let’s not just do it, let’s do it right.
Watch the video and seriously consider what it says. Agree or disagree, let me know what you think — leave me a comment.
