"We're seeing students who were previously timid problem solvers afraid to give the wrong answer, now intrepid problem solvers."
This killer quote from Kevin Gant who speaks in this 7-minute TEDx video is incredibly important in a country like South Africa where we are desperately seeking a new approach to education.
Gant and three colleagues co-founded nex+Gen Academy in collaboration with Sandia Labs, Intel, APS, and the non-profit New Tech Network (NTN). Gant has served as a School Development Coach with NTN, helping to implement and support more than 10 new schools in seven different states, and has trained hundreds of teachers in project-based learning.
