Alan Kay

I just watched this TED video by Alan Kay (thanks to Darren for the link). Obviously the geek in me was attracted to the use of technology as a learning tool but then I got thinking about how different this is to the way that kids are currently being taught. Bella, in reality isn’t being taught much more differently to the way I am being taught – why is that? Is it the teachers not being able to leverage this technology? Is it a lack of investment? Or is it a lack of the balls to radically change our educational institutions?
