Do schools kill creativity?

πŸ”— (https://www.ted.com/talks/ken_ro...)

Sir Ken Robinson makes an entertaining and profoundly moving case for creating an education system that nurtures (rather than undermines) creativity.

2

Are MOOCs the future of education in 20 years or an intermediate thing?

πŸ”— (https://www.quora.com/Are-MOOCs-...)

Instead of making crappy recordings of something known to be suboptimal, we should be scaling and automating the best known teaching method: one-to-one tutors.

Let's use video to reinvent education

πŸ”— (https://www.ted.com/talks/salman...)

Salman Khan talks about how and why he created the remarkable Khan Academy, a carefully structured series of educational videos offering complete curricula in math and, now, other subjects. He shows the power of interactive exercises, and calls for teachers to consider flipping the traditional classroom script — give students video lectures to watch at home, and do "homework" in the classroom with the teacher available to help.

How to escape education's death valley

πŸ”— (https://www.ted.com/talks/ken_ro...)

Sir Ken Robinson outlines 3 principles crucial for the human mind to flourish -- and how current education culture works against them. In a funny, stirring talk he tells us how to get out of the educational "death valley" we now face, and how to nurture our youngest generations with a climate of possibility.

We Need a Better Way to Visualize People’s Skills

πŸ”— (https://hbr.org/2016/09/we-need-...)

How can companies get a better idea of which skills employees and job candidates have? While university degrees and grades have done that job for a long time, they’ve done it imperfectly. Michelle Weise outlines some ideas drawing inspiration from Github's contribution model.

What we're learning from online education

πŸ”— (https://www.ted.com/talks/daphne...)

Daphne Koller is enticing top universities to put their most intriguing courses online for free — not just as a service, but as a way to research how people learn. With Coursera (cofounded by Andrew Ng), each keystroke, quiz, peer-to-peer discussion and self-graded assignment builds an unprecedented pool of data on how knowledge is processed.
