I just wanted to share this post, cause it makes some pretty amazing points. As a tech-savvy parent, I’m quick to hand my children my iPhone, and let them play with games & watch videos. This article breaks down how instead of fighting the shortage of teachers (and really good teachers), we could put focus on games that will educate our children. On that same note I was just listening to Tim Ferriss’s podcast w/ Peter H. Diamandis who was asked a question about how to disrupt the education system. His answer was pretty amazing. It was all based around AI (artificial intelligence) and how the richest child & the poorest child could receive the best education on the planet if we had AI that could analyze a child’s needs & levels.
