Lets contribute to create an error-free model of school.

90% of the people i meet blame their failure to education system. While other 10% thank teachers, peer who played an important role in success. This means education system and learning environment really plays a crucial part in determining success and failure. Now clearly above 10% were lucky as they found good source of inspiration. But everybody aint so lucky.

Tedster are most intelligent people on the planet earth with a motto "Making world a better place to live". Lets model a system of education which is reachable, affordable and effective. A system that helps foster creativity. Such a far reaching system is simply not possible if we dont have a common medium through which the best academic provide teach billions of people across the globe. Let not the good education to be limited to posh high school or universities like MIT, Harvard, IIT......Education is a basic right that should be available to everybody.

Just think about it a place on internet where you could login just like Facebook, not to play fish games but educate ourself. Learn what we love. Learn from best people on the subject. Talk and collaborate with people who are genuinely interested on topic they are learning. Build interesting projects using internet tools like Google Sketch up!

    Mar 16 2011: Collaborations is the key, the more people with the same mind set that you can get behind the idea, the greater the voice... There is an endless amount of educators who have the same dream it is just a matter of bringing these people altogether behind your vision to collaborate and disseminate the ideas. Creativity and collaboration are the biggest underpinning ideas that your vision will promote so keep up the good work. Two websites that you may find interesting (if you haven't already seen them) are edutopia.org, which is run by the George Lucas foundation and fluency21.com which is run by Ian Jukes. Both based on forward thinking models of education that go hand in hand with Dr Kens talks and others like it. I hope this has been of some help.
