Changing the Game in Education with Jerry Kolber
Manage episode 328686859 series 2809282
A survey done in 2021 shows that more than half of all students report they’re struggling to complete schoolwork and almost half find it hard to focus in class. Why is that? It’s very possible that the standards for teaching in the U.S. are a bit behind the times. Kids have different educational needs, and yet, for the most part, our educational system hasn’t changed much over the past 200 years! One thing is for sure- one size doesn’t fit all for education!
In this episode, we are talking with Jerry Kolber, co-creator and narrator of the hit children's podcast WHO SMARTED?, Emmy-nominated co-creator and showrunner of Nat Geo's biggest hit series BRAIN GAMES, and Netflix's BRAINCHILD with Pharrell Williams.
We talk about how kids can’t all be taught with the same strategies (read this chapter and then retain it for your next test). Kids have different needs, both emotional and educational and that’s why we need to change the game in education.
