The myth of the average

“What good is the best technology in the world if you can’t reach the instruments when you need them the most?” – Todd Rose, Harvard

A thought provoking TEDx talk from Todd Rose. Designing cockpits for the mythical ‘average pilot’ presents an interesting metaphor for how schools sometimes think about designing learning for students and teachers. He argues that the effective use of technology can help us to design flexible learning. If we design for the ‘average everybody’, we design for nobody.

Quite.
