Today I share three videos I had in a YouTube playlist that hold lessons for those of us in schooling and education.
The lesson is not so much that what kids learn in school now is more complicated that what we had to learn when we were their age. It is that much of what we learn in schools is pointless and not memorable.
You can combine the old with the new, but if the old is mindset or baggage while the new is tools or instruments, the old drive and determine what the new does. The outside looks flashy until you see the inside in action.
You are never too old to try something new. You can choose to be stubborn or fearful or you can put yourself in a situation where you have to try. When you do, you might just surprise yourself and learn something new.
