A must-watch 17 minute TED Talk. Fascinating!
Some of my key learning points:
- Kids are born to be self-directed and collaborative learners.
- The existing education system could have squandered this nature.
- Technology can rekindle this lost nature.
- The role of educators has shifted.
- Leveraging technology can indeed improve test scores without drill and practice.
