TEDxTraverse City- Yong Zhao- Teach Children to Invent Jobs

Standard

Dr. Yong Zhao is an internationally known scholar, author, and speaker. His works focus on the implications of globalization and technology on education.

Dr. Zhao poses the question that everyone asks:  What is most important to teach?  It is a question that drives at the heart of what we believe is the function of education.  Are we purely teaching for job preparation or are we preparing students for the future.  Do we want left brain development where we build on rote skill and knowledge development or do we foster right brain that will push problem solving and more flexible thinking.   This is a very interesting video which gets at the comparison of different education systems found in different countries.
