The Future Of Education Is Outside The Classroom
A documentary by Ericsson spotlights luminaries advancing new educational platforms around the world.
The world is currently facing monumental education challenges. Decades of standardized testing, fear of technology, and fixation on memorization have impacted the world's youth negatively and kept them from reaching their human potential.
In a recent documentary, the telecommunications provider Ericsson sheds light on shifts happening in the worlds of various educators and the learning industry at large. Watch the documentary below and take a look at our key takeaways from the film:
Seth Godin believes the education system is scam. While many kids can sit for hours, take notes, and repeat what they learned 3 weeks later, some kids do not learn this way. They perform better once given a structure and a reason to leverage the information at their fingertips. He conveys his thinking on education in detail in a recent ebook he wrote titled Stop Stealing Dreams. The free ebook is a great foundation from which parents, administrators, students, and teachers can come together to have a deeper conversation about the future of education.
