Jeff Jarvis Gets it

Watch it.

This is Jeff’s ‘lecture’ at Tedx NYED. Jeff is the first person I’ve ever encountered who sees, as I do, modern schools as ‘factory schools’, and has a lot of exciting ideas about how to fix that. His most exciting idea is a modern school designed like Oxford University: Get the best lectures in a subject from online repositories like MIT (and have a quasi-market system to determine which is best), and then provide students with tutors to guide their intellectual journey. We have a tremendous number of tools available for people to find stuff out and practice useful skills, with more being developed every day. Let’s get to work.
