How to help the present-oriented care about things that matter?
As Zimbardo explains, there are some people too focused on present-orientation, being unable to resist temptations and work towards the future. We probably cannot change their temperament. So, how should education change to offer something for kids who'd rather play video games than study? Make maths a computer game Khan Academy style? Would that actually be able to compete with the appeal of the entertainment industry?
Interactive classrooms is another promising idea but does this help the fact that some don't even want to be in the classroom?
