Improving education with teacher of the year
Dr. Elliot Soloway has taught some interesting people in his classroom at the University of Michigan. How about Larry Page, co-founder of Google? Among others. He’s been named “Teacher of the Year,” but that’s not why I talked with him. What we talked about is the state of education and how he sees it being improved. He’s quite passionate and this is one of my favorite interviews so far. He’s also started a company, GoKnow Learning, although we don’t talk about that much here, focusing instead on the changes that are coming to education due to technologies like the cell phone.
