Designing a new Education System
This is basically the idea from the comments of another thread here:
What are the pros/cons of current public education?
What are things that should be kept/improved?
In that previous topic, I stated my opinions and ideas. Here's a refresh on my points.
Different people learn differently. There are introverts/extroverts, close-minded/open-minded, optimistic/pessimistic, messy/OCD, booksmart/streetsmart, etc.
Online education is rapidly empowering anyone to learn on their own individually. However, fundamentally it cannot teach people to communicate effectively to others when talking or in a seminar discussion. In other words, school should teach 75% collaboration and teamwork and communication, not 75% individualism.
Learning should be a fun thing, not a chore. Learning should also be useful to the real world.
Everyone is curious at heart. Everyone is an artist at heart.
Effective communication can be established not only when we respect our selves' and each other's strengths and weaknesses, but also when we respect our similarities.
Bullies suck, no one likes bullies. Not even the bullies like their bullies lol
