what change would you make to the education system
What Change Would You Make To The Education System?

"To give our children the chance to live out their dreams in a world that's never been more competitive, we will equip tens of thousands of schools, community colleges, and public universities with 21st century classrooms, labs, and libraries,"-- President Obama, January 15, 2009

I would make schools more focused on

21st-century learning skills with engaging,

technology-rich and high-quality learning

environments. Education would be less focused on lower-level learning, but would use more project- and performance-based learning to measure student growth.

I would use tools such as distance

learning to teach students more relevant

material. Kids will be drawn into a course

by knowing they will use what they learn.

Then you can keep their attention by using

technology to talk to professionals around

the world.
