Reimagining Learning

"There are a lot of challenges that we face in education today, but we have the tools right now to solve all of them, we have the tools right now to solve all the educational challenges if we find a way to close this gap, and we have to do it now and we have to do it fast because our students deserve it and cannot afford to wait any longer".
A teacher by training and innovator by inclination, Richard Culatta works to leverage technology to reinvent learning. In this interesting TED talk, Richard identifies 3 major challenges with our current approach to education and suggests how a shift to personalized learning is the key to the future of education in America. To make this shift, we must close the digital divide between those who can leverage technology to reimagine learning and those who simply use technology to digitize the status quo. Interesting talk about the need to change the way we learn.
