This is a compelling video from Dan Brown, a self-declared drop-out who forcefully drives his argument that education must reflect the way the world is today. While we have seen many riffs on this topic, and you could blow holes in many of his arguments (and there are some great video responses that do just that), he does remind us that the landscape has changed and that often, educational institutions have not.
And he dropped out because school was interfering with his education.
I wish he’d been in my debating class at school, too;-)
Thanks to Claire Amos (ICTs in English) for the tip.

Thank you so much for this video, it really makes one evaluate the true meaning of Education and what it means. How it must evolve to meet the demands of our kids who are growing up in the information age.
