I love this quote:
Are we teaching our kids to collect the dots, or connect the dots?
As the Internet and social media continues to disrupt almost every industry and business model, it has yet to truly disrupt the educational system for precisely the reasons Seth outlines in this great TedX talk.
More great thoughts on this here: Stop Stealing Dreams.
My sincere hope is that my children are able to do both. I want them to be able to think critically, analytically and decisively but also don’t want them relying on the Internet for their knowledge. There’s value in useless information and if you can learn to connect the dots, you need to have dots to connect.
