What is the future for learning?

The absence of the teacher in the presence of the internet can become a pedagogical tool

Students are the future, but what’s the future for students? To arm them with the relevant, timeless skills for our rapidly changing world, we need to revolutionize what it means to learn. Education innovators like Dr. Sugata Mitra, visiting professor at MIT; Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy; and Dr. Catherine Lucey, Vice Dean of Education at UCSF, are redefining how we engage young minds for a creatively and technologically-advanced future. Which of these educators holds the key for unlocking the learning potential inside every student?”

Let the teachers do the higher order things, and let the computers do the basic things like; does 2 + 2 equals 4? You should learn something when you have a reason to learn it! Why would school be so rigid if they didn’t need to be rigid. Education as we know it came from war! Victorians made a system that would make us copies of each other! How do you motivate a kid?

What will a curriculum for the future look like?
