But what if we embraced technology, embraced the millennial generation's natural predilections,
and really think about creating these online technologies, blend them into their lives.
So here's what we can do. So rather than driving our kids into a classroom, herding them out there at 8 o'clock in the morning
I hated going to class at 8 o'clock in the morning, so why are we forcing our kids to do that?
So instead what you do is you have them watch videos and do interactive exercises in the comfort of their dorm rooms, in their bedroom,
in the dining room, in the bathroom, wherever they're most creative.
Then they come into the classroom for some in-person interaction. They can have discussions amongst themselves.
They can solve problems together. They can work with the professor and have the professor answer their questions.
In fact, with edX, when we were teaching our first course on circuits and electronics around the world, this was happening unbeknownst to us.
Two high school teachers at the Sant High School in Mongolia had flipped their classroom,
and they were using our video lectures and interactive exercises,
where the learners in the high school, 15-year-olds, mind you,
would go and do these things in their own homes and they would come into class,
and as you see from this image here, they would interact with each other and do some physical laboratory work.
And the only way we discovered this was they wrote a blog and we happened to stumble upon that blog.
