Education theory

and interesting links regarding motivation and new (more effective than traditional) approaches in education

  • Dan Pink: The puzzle of motivation - Career analyst Dan Pink examines the puzzle of motivation, starting with a fact that social scientists know but most managers don't: Traditional rewards aren't always as effective as we think. Listen for illuminating stories - and maybe, a way forward.
  • Sugata Mitra: Kids can teach themselves - Educational researcher Sugata Mitra talks about his Hole in the Wall project. Young kids in this project figured out how to use a PC on their own -- and then taught other kids. He asks, what else can children teach themselves?
  • Sugata Mitra: Build a School in the Cloud - Sugata Mitra is the winner of the 2013 TED Prize. His wish: Build a School in the Cloud, where children can explore and learn from one another.
  • Sugata Mitra: The child-driven education - Sugata Mitra tackles one of the greatest problems of education - the best teachers and schools don't exist where they're needed most. In a series of real-life experiments from New Delhi to South Africa to Italy, he gave kids self-supervised access to the web and saw results that could revolutionize how we think about teaching.
