3 Thought Provoking Education Videos

I am beyond exhausted, had a long day, and had a post planned...
But I won't get around to posting it today, it seemed.
So instead, here's three videos I really enjoyed, having to do with education, and trying to change the state of education today.

This first video is by a homeschooled teenager, and what he calls "hackschooling", how he uses homeschooling to allow him to pursue his dreams, be happy, and get educated.

 For those that can't watch the video directly, here's a link to it on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h11u3vtcpaY

This video is about an autistic kid who was in special ed, his parents were told he'll never amount to anything... and his parents pulled him out of school, taught him in the way that suited him best, and discovered that he is a true genius, and he has made amazing discoveries.

And this is a video by a college professor about how the school system stifles creativity.

I hope you enjoy these videos!

  3. Loved these videos, very inspiring, thank you so much for sharing them, some times I wonder if I'm doing the right thing by home schooling and it's things like this that reassure me that I am :-)

  4. You should read Hacking Your Education by Dale J Stephens and visit http://www.uncollege.org/. I work in Higher Education and found it to be a very interesting read. (I went through traditional schooling at all levels, but am not sure if my children will). Dale chose to unschool himself fairly early on and had his parents support. It's a great resource!
