How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses

How a Radical New Teaching Method Could Unleash a Generation of Geniuses | Adriatic Coast of Croatia & Slovenia | Scoop.it
Students in Matamoros, Mexico weren't getting much out of school -- until a radical new teaching method unlocked their potential.
Toni Krasnic's insight:

"A new breed of educators, inspired by everything from the Internet to evolutionary psychology, neuroscience, and AI, are inventing radical new ways for children to learn, grow, and thrive. To them, knowledge isn’t a commodity that’s delivered from teacher to student but something that emerges from the students’ own curiosity-fueled exploration. Teachers provide prompts, not answers, and then they step aside so students can teach themselves and one another. They are creating ways for children to discover their passion—and uncovering a generation of geniuses in the process."

Home to opulent hotels, secluded coves and some of the sunniest weather in Europe, Hvar appears poised to gain even greater popularity.
Toni Krasnic's insight:

Perhaps most paradoxically, Hvar (pronounced hwahr) has been a popular resort destination for over a century, and yet it seems permanently perched on the cusp of the-next-big-thing status.
