Editor’s Note – This is a guest post. Please read below for some thoughts of my own.
Formal education (classroom) is the predominant form of learning in the world today, at least in the post-industrialized world. But the fact is that effective learning is not the monopoly of a top down institutional approach to education. In fact, the more we look into this, it is becoming increasingly evident that there may be other more effective ways of teaching and interaction that try to look at students as individuals rather than a cohort and encourage the development of their unique strengths.
