Joi Ito, director of the Media Lab, is one of the best examples of why we need to bring innovation in education. Education is a highly private affair. Education in its current form was established to fill ranks of industries’ skill workers. Industries have now become highly modernized and mostly controlled by machines but we still treat human beings as skilled workers.
We are thinkers. Thinkers think, absorb and create on their own time and not sometime around 8:35 am at ASB building. Education can’t be imparted by a scientist who pretends to be talking to 300 students. We have to make it a social affair where we can see, touch and modify science.
