How Do We Make Learning Relevant to Students? (from GOOD Video)

How Do We Make Learning Relevant to Students? (from GOOD Video) | Technology for school | Scoop.it

A look at ways we can make learning more relevant to students with conversations from a number of education technologists including Sugata Mitra and Sal Khan. 
The video is just over 12 minutes and explores where education is going. Eli Kaufman (the producer of the film) notes that the people interviewed may not have taught in a classroom and recognizes that there are "real limitations to tech-based solutions." He also notes that "a computer can't teach 'those life skills that only a master teacher can teach' - and which require people to be in the same room - 'how to become a citizen, how to problem solve, and learning how to be a collaborator.'"
