World Class Learners: Educating Creative and Entrepreneurial Learners by Youg Zhao

A World Class Education

  • Granting children autonomy in choosing what to learn rather than imposing upon them what others deem useful is necessary for cultivating creative entrepreneurs. In a world where human needs are diverse, a standardized set of talents cannot possibly meet all the needs. Standardized skills and talents are not good bets for jobs that have not yet been invented. If basics are truly basic, they should show up as part of student projects.
  • We need to create authentic products and services rather than focus on test scores. The teacher should no longer serve as the sole source of knowledge or disciplinary authority, but rather as a motivator, a reviewer, a facilitator, and an organizer. Students should ask questions, not find ready-made answers to existing questions. Students need to develop their strengths and outsource their weaknesses.
  • Expanding the learning environment beyond the physical boundaries is key to developing global partners. Students should use international resources as they work to solve local problems. Each student should also have an adult advisor that they can access outside of school.
