Closing Statement from Ahmed Ben Yaghlane

So, to me, education is about gaining the perspectives. Helping people gain the perspectives to be able to step back and think about the various kinds of things that are going on around them and making decisions of how "Am I going to lean back and just let this stuff happen to me? Or am I going to be highly critical of it.

    Aug 31 2012: More e-learning, but also more collaborative/social learning.
  • Sep 11 2012: My thought on educations future is: deciplin need to go.

    Simply because deciplin kills creativity.

    When you look at the education system that most of the western world have today, then its very linear. A linear system is a very effective system, you get at lot of educated students out of the linear system. The linear system promote quantity over quality. Without deciplin this system can't simply work.

    My solution is a more organic system, which take care of the individual need. The organic education system promotes creativity.

    This is the future of Education

    Sep 4 2012: We have to change mindsets to reach desired for the advancement of the asset
  • Sep 4 2012: We should teach logic and common sense beginning in first grade.
    • Sep 4 2012: 'Logic' and 'common sense' are both fine starting points but every child that is ultimately'successful' beyond the confines of structured schooling has developed some fine character traits. By that I don't mean other important human traits (be nice, be honest, etc), I mean the traits that directly affect an individual's ability to push through mistakes, to 'have another go at a problem', for its this tenacity that transcends all socio-economic boundaries.

    Aug 30 2012: Education needs resources...including a political representative...
    Resources are usually allocated to politicians or on their hands at least!
    Many NGOs tiny or giant (e.g. UNICEF) trying their best to leave no child behind and it seems like it's open-ended thread.
