Children as the Trojan horse | The Fifth Conference
"I guess the problem begins with our educational system, which is rotten. Children hate school. The problem is that they hate education, while they love to learn. All children love to learn. There are two things—essential things—we do not teach at school: functional technology and money...We need to teach kids to learn to navigate a world that is becoming more and more technological...Children must learn to play with maths. And we must teach them to work with resources like Wikipedia, but as critical thinkers, as people who understand how that knowledge system is put together. Ultimately it is all about teaching kids to learn and to think...“Today what we teach is confusion.”
