I am not so sure I am comfortable with the style of this speaker Dan Brown on the theme An Open Letter to Educators but I have learnt over the years to try to overlook the presentation style and focus on the content. I may not like his style but although Dan is only 20 years old he is already a minor YouTube celebrity with over 100,000 subscribers and 2 million page views to his credit.
Two messages jumped out at me:
- "Society no longer cares how many facts we can memorize because in the information age, facts are free."
- " Education is about empowering students to change the world for the better."
