Wow! Thank you Todd Rose for pulling those strands together so powerfully.
Best Ted talk ever, and timely given my current interests
It's something that as an educator I am really aware of, we waste potential, let it slip throughout fingers as we are just not superhuman. Technology can really step up here!
I had been pondering how to use some of the 'filtering' techniques of some maths programs and psychometric tests in educational apps for the humanities. It's just a small step but our 14-18 range has a setting allowing questions to be pulled once answered correctly inspired by my work with psychometric testing. It is a crazy complicated idea but has potential for the individualised learning so needed in the classroom and in my experience almost impossible for one teacher to provide to 30 students in 1 hour!
Such a thought provoking talk. A must for anyone who........actually a must for everyone.
