TEDxGlasgow - Jane Ballantine - Stop the revolutions and let education evolve!

Allow education to evolve naturally in line with society -- as it always has -- rather than constantly trying to revolutionise it! Jane Ballantine, a former teacher and mobile-learning enthusiast/entrepreneur, analyzes different methods used to "fix" the education system and their mixed results as well as where the education system is currently going in the UK and overseas in light of the evolution and spread of modern mobile devices. The technology may be changing fast, but humans aren't; and our need for good and inspiring teachers remains.More about Jane...Jane is an educationalist, e-learning expert and mobile app entrepreneur releasing educational apps such as the rAPPidRevise suite of revision apps.

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)
