Оценок: 120438 | Просмотров: 3087181
Eddy Zhong, successful technology entrepreneur, dives into the truth behind our K-12 education system. Eddy strongly believes that the education system diminishes creativity and confines children to a certain path towards success. He contends that kids are taught to believe college is a necessary step in life and that it is mandatory to achieve one's goals. His talk challenges the commonly held beliefs of our entire education structure. Eddy is the founder of Leangap, a summer program that helps high school students start their own companies Eddy is an aspiring technology entrepreneur and the founder of Blanc, a smart-watch company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. His ideas have been featured in numerous publications and he is passionate about empowering youth to think differently. Eddy is the founder of Leangap, a summer program that helps high school students start their own companies This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

HOMOGENISING of CHILDREN I think one of the biggest dangers to originality of thought is funneling young children into systems at earlier and earlier ages so there is less and less diversity in these earliest formative years. Less diversity in upbringing and less diversity in experience. Children are so inventive when they lead their own play. Their own play and learning is one thing. They are exploring, imagining, learning, discovering and practising as well as having absorbing fun. Instead adults are taking their children to so many directed leisure and learning situations that they have little time left for their own inventive play. It has been shown that the development of the brain is akin to a young plant. If certain buds don't develop at the right stage then they never will. (An extreme and sad example is that feral children who missed the learning to talk stage can't learn later). So take your children to some organised leisure or learning but give them plenty of time to develop with one another in their own way in their own surroundings too.

I mostly agree but in most cases teens will be teens. School won’t stop that. However it can help.

Schools kill curiosity and which is the most important part of being smart You can't be smart if you are not curious But school requires you to be a blank slate with no interests so they can force everything teachers get told to make you memorize onto you

Do you know how to solve this madness? Stop confining students to certain schools because of where they live. In a diverse countries like, this, students need to go to the school that best fits them. They shouldn't be forced into schools where they feel like their creativity is being crushed simply due to a zip code. Unless we root out the special interests that are destroying school choice in America, this cycle will never change.

School teaches us what to think not how to think
Daniel Price (20 дней назад)
The thing about the education system: correct information, wrong method. We’ll need all the stuff that we learn in school for our jobs, but since we don’t know what we want to be when we’re at a younger age we should look at all the options and therefore will need to try everything. However, the method of the education system based on factory values and meaningless tests is not going to nourish any talent in areas that need to be dealt with or have to be taken to heart. As a result of it, my 15-year old self right now cannot even see outside the box, let alone think out of it despite the fact that I know enough to reach out and try to take the initiative.

I feel as if math is so unessecary. English/Language Arts is way more important than you think. Nearly half of my language arts class didn't even know how to right in cursive nor to do a signature. But yeah the squared of root of 8 will surely help someone if they're having a heart attack.

I truly hope someone can help me. A world full of entrepreneurs sounds very cool. I don't want to sounds as if I were saying "This will lead to destroying our economic model/system and, as a result, we'll end up in misery/a depression/a financial crisis/etc." How are we going to manage that, a world based on entrepreneurship? Has it occurred to anybody what kind of system we would need to maintain a balance in all this entrepreneurial society? 😮 I'd like to know, I hope you don't get me wrong.
F. A. A. Espejel (24 дня назад)
lorá alba Worry not, it's okay. I agree with you, I think not everybody was born to be an entrepreneur. However, let's suppose we can change the way our children grow, let's suppose we can make an actual entrepreneurial society. How would we manage that? Many will surely say the answer may come in due time. But, can we foresee how to handle that? Or perhaps, can we star molding it from now? Because we can do something beforehand if it's the case.

This speech is really inspiring, it reminded of my hobby, making things. I used to make electric circuts random crafts or even something like a gadget to help me around the house. I did all this at 10 years old and now I'm 13 and the only thing I do is sit on my phone

Yet he needed school to learn to speak and describe things. He wouldn’t be up there if he didn’t go to school.
TheMillenotti (29 дней назад)
I don't really understand why would it be the school's fault? It's just... life. School is part of it, for sure creative thinking should be encouraged. But in my opinion, teenagers don't lose interest, because the school doesn't encourage them. They lose interest, because they learn that the kid's dreams are not always viable, rarely is to be honest. If one kid wants to be an astronaut, he can be. But when 95 out of 100 kids want to be an astronaut, then we have an issue right there. And this leads to another factor, which is money. Some people like to pretend that life is not about money and yes, it's not entirely out of money, but it's an important part of life. First of all, living off of creativity is a very hard thing. It's a very shaky thing to build your life on, which is why most people are not willing to try it. Second of all, there are always trends. If we imagine a world in which schools encourage creativity the same way they teach academic knowledge in our world today, creative jobs would be the trend and we would have lack of people in other areas the same way we have lack of people in creative fields in reality. What does lack of something lead to? Demand. Demand leads to better conditions, better conditions lead to more people wanting to work in those positions instead of creative fields. Stable jobs for good money, what's not to like? But sadly it doesn't work the other way around, people won't respond to the demands of creative fields, because of the aforementioned unreliability. Long story short, this is kind of how life works. We're designed to put survival above anything else. Unpredictable future goes straight against our instincts. Kids don't have this instinct yet, it develops during the teenager phase.

My teacher teaches me how to be creative. But the headmaster wants the teachers to prepare us for standardized tests. Or else the headmaster will get complaints from the government. Most of the time folks blame teachers, but they forgot that teachers are trained and controlled by ppl who make the standardized test.
