How to learn?
Humility is one of the greatest values. We never stop learning. What a story! The interview of Harvard's internationally-recognized educational innovator during a radio show hosted by Kara Miller from WGBH's Innovation Hub is tremendously interesting. A professor of Physics, Eric Mazur advocates Peer Instruction. I hope that many professors will listen to this interview, as a big lesson is to be learned.
Eric Mazur is also an entrepreneur in technology start-ups for the education and technology markets. His research is in experimental ultrafast optics and condensed matter physics.
Listening to Eric Mazur, what is impressive is that it's never too late to learn. Even a famous professor can transform his way of teaching. This is important because universities need to reinvente themselves. I invite you to read the article Universities must prepare for a technology-enabled future by Subahash Kak.
The changes happen faster, and it starts even sooner. Listen to this young 13-year-old boy, Logan LaPlante, who pursues the goal to be happy and healthy in life. He presents how hacking education helps him to achieve this goal.
Everyone will find how he enjoys learning and how to make it a daily habit. Just following the trends, or watching conferences or courses won't be helpful if you don't try to apply what you just listen to. I invite you to read the post, The skills needed to find some good tips on this perspective.
