Becoming obsolete? Already there

The Classroom in 2020.
George Kembel
Forbes; April 8, 2010

“Our education system is not broken, but it is becoming obsolete. We’re still running an educational model developed for the industrial revolution, designed to prepare workers for factory jobs.

Picture the experience in most of today’s college classrooms: a vast amphitheater where a wizened professor drones through a long lecture about what he knows. Three weeks later, students remember only a tenth of what they learned. Bored students and executives hungry for talented young leaders know this is not the way to produce the next generation of innovators.“
