Inspire! Challenge! Excite! [VIDEO 7:23]

Derek Muller explores why many technologies have promised to revolutionize education, but so far none has. Now there is a glut of information and video on the internet so should we expect it to revolutionize education? This video makes the case it won’t, because technology is not inherently superior, animations over static graphics, videoed presentations over live lectures etc. and learning is inherently a social activity, interacting with others. “The job of  teachers is to inspire…to challenge….to excite. The most important thing a teacher does it to make every student feel like they are important…and to make them accountable for their learning.”
