TEDxCapeTownED - Sam Paddock - What if Mothers Taught the World?

Sam is the founder of GetSmarter, an online/distance learning organisation. In this short talk from TEDxCapeTownED he lays out the philosophy behind their success rates (over 90% vs 9% at South Africa's largest distance learning institution). He credits their success to splitting the role of administrator ('Mother') and teacher, and having this consistent individual frequently in contact with the students. It's a high touch approach that changes the environment of learning and a model, he says, we learnt from our mothers.About TEDx, x = independently organized event?In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)For more information on GetSmarter visit http://www.getsmarter.co.za/Find out more about TEDxCapeTownED at http://TEDxCapeTownED.org/
