TED Audiences should be more skeptical and not just laugh at tongue in cheek presentations that ridicule current educational practices.
A number of good ideas have been presented in TED Talks. However, some of the ideas presented have never been seriously questioned by TED Audiences.
One of the presenters that I am talking about is Mr. Ken Robinson. He talks about what education should be like, but I am not sure if he has bothered to take the time to create a system of education that is based on his ideas and on a large scale.
It is easy for him to say what education should be like, but until he creates a large scale system that accomplishes what he says the current system does not accomplish, I will remain skeptical, although I have similar ideas.
The purpose of this conversation is to encourage TED Audiences to be more skeptical and ask tough questions when TED Talkers propose fancy ideas.
