Foundation of Education is Still Based on the Social Interaction Between Teachers and Students


Foundation of Education is Still Based on the Social Interaction Between Teachers and Students

Many technologies have promised to revolutionize education, but so far none has. With that in mind, what could revolutionize education?

These ideas have been percolating since Derek Muller wrote his PhD in physics education: http://www.physics.usyd.edu.au/super/
He has also discussed this topic with CGP Grey, whose view of the future of education differs significantly from his: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vsCA

He thinks it is instructive that each new technology has appeared to be so transformative. You can imagine, for example, that motion pictures must have seemed like a revolutionary learning technology. After all they did revolutionize entertainment, yet failed to make significant inroads into the classroom. TV and video seem like a cheaper, scaled back film, but they too failed to live up to expectations. Now there is a glut of information and video on the internet so should we expect it to revolutionize education?

In this video he shares his view - that it won't, for two reasons: 1. Technology is not inherently superior, animations over static graphics, videoed presentations over live lectures etc. and 2. Learning is inherently a social activity, motivated and encouraged by interactions with others.
