Scott McLeod on Education
In this Ted Talks presentation, Scott McLeod shares his thoughts on education in the 21st century with the American School of Bombay. He facilitates meaningful conversations on many fronts including his popular blog Dangerously Irrelevant. The background information and arguments put on the table in this presentation line up with some of my c0mments about Alvin Toffler's work in a post several months ago. His presentation drives home a couple of key questions:
- What is our moral imperative to create school environments that prepare students for the next 50 years rather than the last 50 years?
- How brave do we need to be to make this happen (not tweaking the status quo, but inventing the new paradigm)?
