    I do think we "experiment" on children way way too much without knowing what the consequences will be, sex education for example, they're changing all the time what should be taught without any idea what to expect

    I can only see potential in this if this sort of teaching style only took one quarter portion of a child's schooltime.
    Children need time for group work, they need time to effectively socialize, to engage in more physical activities, and to experience different teaching styles than those that are already pre-programmed and filed out for countless other children.

    British children are going to be beaten, raped and murdered by the peaceful Muslims until there are none left

    another experiment that went wrong was on this weeks freakonomics podcast, they found mentoring was ghastly, they've always found recently taking groups of troubled kids and having them do activities just gave the psychopaths in the groups to subvert otherwise mildy troubled children greatly

  14. ChickenYale 4 months ago

    I think it's great.
    Fuck working with other snotty kids who don't participate or work hard enough in group projects.

    So basically the future of education is pushing smarter children to do harder work so they can work at a younger age and be slaves with the motivation of a poorly paying job to help the rich and corporates becomes bigger and more powerful. Controlling them from their day of birth to the day they die. SAD

    Where are the swings ? Kids playing with clay, drawing or even using a pencil ? This is not how schools should be…God, where are we heading to ? Looks more like a commercial of Apple products than a school.

    So we're going to hand our children's future to private businesses, who could choose to influence them however they want. Moreover, they will no longer know how to make friends or deal with other genuine human beings as they won't have any group work. Why is Google, Facebook (Mark Zuckerberg) etc interested in taking state obligations away from the state and essentially privatising every child under their businesses. Am I the only one who is terrified by this?

  23. All BBC newsreaders unavailable today? Too expensive? Or is it just plain laziness?

  24. William Love 4 months ago

    Like all new applications of technology, there are some benefits & some drawbacks. Personalized education is a major benefit here… but that's about it, as far as I can see. I'm having a hard time seeing what problem this approach to education is actually aiming to solve… would love it if someone could enlighten me.

    This is an interesting experiment, I'm curious to see how this develops.

    There are too few talented and energized teachers already. This is a great idea to pursue, trying to move education ahead instead of pretending that age old ideas still work. Memorization is one of the last dumb skills schools pretend matters; while some facts are key, there's just too many facts/data for anybody to know, even those in a focused profession (like no software programmers knows all modern programming languages, but they can learn if they have been taught programming).

    I can see a little fine tuning needed, on the other hand, It's time schools moved with the times, The Human mind is evolving and the school need to also.
