George Lucas Thoughts on Education- World Business Forum 2009

Posted: October 6, 2009 in Education

Trying to reinvent how teachers teach– using experimental multimedia– Lucas felt movies and computers could come together– go into schools and find and capture best practices. 

George Lucas Foundation–

No one was recording best teachers, best ideas, put them online.  What is best way for people to learn?

Asked if education is a lost cause?

Lucas-” we only fail if we give up– we are drowing as a society– do we want to give up or keep going– single most important thing we have as a uman race is to create knowledge and pass it on to the next generation.”

“our brain doesn’t work well unless we tell it things…”

 

GREAT ideas– how do you access them and learn from them

 

We need to adapt to survive on this planet…

 

we will have to learn a lot in next 400,000 years

 

we have to keep doing it today to get there…
