The Future Of The Education System & What That Means For Us W/ Kevin Stoller
Today we are joined by Kevin Stoller. Kevin is the founder and CEO of a company called Kay-Twelve, which helps academic organizations better structure learning environments. It is pretty obvious that he and I share that interest and passion about how to get people to learn more, isn't it?
Apart from Kay-Twelve, Kevin also runs the Better Learning podcast, where I recently had the great pleasure to be a guest on, where he talks about different ways that we can influence the educational space, real-world tactics, improving education, and what the future of education is.
I wanted to have Kevin on the show, not just because we both geek out about learning, but because he has some really interesting insights into what the future of education will look like. I don't think anyone is surprised when we say the model is not working and that it is going to be disrupted.
But, we need to ask what that means for us, what does that mean for the children in our lives, how can we help create this revolution in education, and also how can we improve our own learning based on what experts like Kevin are discovering in their day to day work.
This was a really interesting conversation, a little bit different than usual, but since it has to do with learning, I'm sure you folks are going to love it!
