If you’ve had a chance to read my last blog you may have guessed that I have a general dislike for most formal education. In many countries the way that we teach children is out-dated, ineffective and instils the idea that without good grades you won’t be able to succeed in life. Since grades are primarily based on how well you can memorise facts, something that’s become more and more unnecessary as information becomes more accessible, they actually have very little to say about a person’s skill or ability. It’s widely agreed that the current education model doesn’t work, unfortunately trying to pass any type of education reform in the current school systems is an almost impossible task. This factor alone gives eLearning an advantage that standard teaching models can’t hope to match.
