Adding Value to the Delivery of Education

A new service in development by a professor at Harvard attempts to redefine the way the classroom space is used.  Let’s face it, information is cheap.  I can find any information by searching for it on google or in a book.  The classroom needs to do better than that and engage students in a higher level of learning.  Delivery needs to be dynamic and find the true gaps in understanding while offering students the opportunity to transcend to a higher level of learning – understanding.  When a student understands the material to the extent that he or she can apply it to solve a new problem or answer a new question, then he or she has truly mastered that topic.  Check out this link for more information on the new service.  The service is aimed at helping teachers in any classroom deliver this higher level of learning.
