Thanks, Teo

All of these seem to be near-perfect compliments to this idea!

Hey Everyone,

Here's the link. I'm referring to what happens primarily between the 30 second and 1 minute marks:

Hi Kate,

Thanks for your comment. Applied education is probably my closest description as to what this type of space would do for higher education, and education in general as well. It's not a radical rethink, but a long needed adjustment to the walled garden that higher education has become (that has largely been subverted by online education in it's many forms), and the terribly slow and inefficient adaptation of primary and secondary education to today's educational paradigms. The sessions should be as informal as a visit to the local library - but more formalized when specialized learning classes take place. Higher education students could test their knowledge by explaining concepts to interested grade schoolers preparing for the next level, as well as interested community memebers (Richard Feynman is an inspiration in this regard). The makerspace model is a perfect example. Just like the video, several technologies could be combined to give learners crystal clear pictures of the different elements of any topics they choose.
