Every so often somebody says something profound. Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Google just did. Turns out every 2 days the world produces five exabytes of data. This is as much data as the world produced from the start of humanity until 2003.
Every 2 days. Just let that sink in. Oh by the way, Google searches less than 1% of it.
Soooo… Does anyone want to justify teaching in a classroom where the only sources of information are the textbook and the teacher?
The Education Stormfront is the massive wave of change on the horizon. Mr. Schmidt spoke about this in a general way.
“I spend most of my time assuming the world is not ready for the technology revolution that will be happening to them soon,” Schmidt said.
I think that too. I wonder if he wants to guest blog on my site? :)
