The mind is not a vessel that needs filling, but wood that needs igniting – Plutarch

My blog title quote is taken from Daphne Kollers TED talk on “What we’re learning from online education” She continues:

“Maybe we should spend less time at universities filling our students’ minds with content by lecturing at them, and more time igniting their creativity, their imagination and their problem-solving skillsby actually talking with them”

This really follows what i was discussing in the last post, if we can lay the foundations with the students through online classes then we can give the students for autonomy more freedom to express themselves.
