Prepping for the future: Modern education, old problems
from Wired (commentary)
Dr. Jeff Borden, vice president of instruction and academic strategy and lead of the Center for Online Learning at Pearson, had a teacher in high school who used to reference this quote, "A 'smart' person learns from their mistakes without having to make them over and over. An 'educated' person, however, learns from the mistakes of others and never has to make them at all." It's a powerful argument for education, no? It speaks to the idea that we are transforming minds, not just informing students. It speaks to the notion that we are changing paradigms and ultimately the paths of our people, for the betterment of society.
