Education in social media

50 year old Education needs Change

by

Those of you who know me a bit better know how much I care about education, and the lack of good education possibilities in the world. We have basically had the same educational system for over 50 years. The same method for pedagogic and didactic teaching and the same belief of molding people into boxes.

With the overflow of information out there on the web, the access to information has spread and the way in which we could learn has moved from plain text, to sound, to video to emotional NLP methods. All is accessible if we choose to make it accessible. New collaboration tools such as Google Wave and Apps has made it free from costs to collaborate in real time over the Internet.
