Looking at traditional education, the system is focused on ‘teaching’ rather than ‘learning’. This is what Philipp Schmidt, director of learning innovation at the MIT Media Lab says.
Currently, as learners, students do not make their own decisions in terms of where, what and how they choose what to learn and work on.
In this video Schmidt discusses active learning and how to get around some of the challenges in our current educational systems to push students into more creative directions.
Schmidt also talks about artificial intelligence and the role it will play in affecting education systems, in the near future.
