How Elon Musk is educating his children
Jared Sperli stashed this in education
If you want to teach children how engines work, he says, you wouldnâ€™t want to first teach them all about wrenches and all about screwdrivers. You would show them the engine, and ask how they would take it apart. â€śThen a very important thing happens, which is that the relevance of the tools becomes apparent,â€ť he says in the interview.
So basically teach critical thinking and the importance of tools?
Musk describes a school without the traditional grade structure of American primary education, with the goal of catering to studentsâ€™ aptitudes not by arbitrary schedules but in real time, and using problem-solving methods to teach critical thinking.
