Using TED.com as an organic supercomputer think tank, instead of hooking up networks of personal computers.
Something is broken in western scholastic lesson delivery (I speak of western schooling because it is all I know). Maybe it’s the “factory” type delivery, the “you must fit into this box” scenario. Maybe it’s the system itself. The important thing is the curriculum implementers are aware of the problem but have been unable to offer a viable solution. Ted.com with all its great think tank contributors should be able to help. This could be the first of many such great projects. Would such an undertaking or one like it, require absolute focus of the entire collective? If yes, is such focus even possible?
