Stop Stealing Dreams

Oct 23, 2012

WHAT IS SCHOOL FOR? Seth Godin, the pithy and provocative social media writer, summarizes his thoughts in this compelling 19-minute TEDxYouth talk given at Brooklyn Free School. Godin contends that modern education was designed to train people to be obedient so that they could work (and be interchangeable) in factories. Now instead of teaching kids to "collect" dots, we should be teaching them to "connect" dots. The talk is based on his book, Stop Stealing Dreams. Godin's advice: Go build something interesting. Yeah!
