This is what a modern student thinks that educators need to hear. Do you agree with his opinions?

Hi Mary,

Thank you for sharing this video.

I loved when he said "the society no longer cares how many facts we can memorize, because in the information age facts are free". I must say that I totally agree with him.

Perfect!

I don't know much about the US education system. I know an infinitesimal, a teensy-weensy bit about Brazilian universities going online and fiercely fighting among themselves to get in the more students, the more the money keeps rolling in. Now we can see too many universities and not enough objectives to pursue. Me, I never enrolled in one of these. I simply don't know which will teach me what. I'd preferably pick out the online type. But would the online type preferably pick me out? Essa pergunta não quer calar <-- Word for that again?

Alessandro, I only meant that you posted that link. I arrived at that link from a post in the forum. I wasn't talkingabout a blog post.

Mary, thank you for the links. But no, I will try to enroll in one of the local universities and see If I can major in Human Resources online. All with an eye to promotion as I work (as a clerk helper) in the human resources dept of a public, government-owned hospital in the campus of Universidade Federal de Pernambuco. The more courses I take, the more the money keeps rolling ... into at least one of my pockets.
MENSAGEM PATROCINADA Há quanto tempo você estuda inglês? Já passou por sua cabeça que você pode estar estudando de uma forma que dá pouco ou quase nenhum resultado? Que tal fazer um intensivo de inglês de 180 dias e recuperar o tempo perdido? Em 6 meses você pode elevar o seu inglês a um novo patamar.

I agree :?
