Teachers or self-teaching?

There was a heated moment today during NEST- The Networked Society Forum – when science and a social media advocate went head-to-head on the topic of teachers in education.


 

Sir Harry Kroto, a Nobel prize laureate in Chemistry, talked about the importance of scientific evidence in learning.  He has interviewed 50 other Nobel Laureates, and says: “All but one of them says a teacher had a great influence on their lives.”

Read all about the debate between teachers and self-teaching, including why Sir Harry Kroto threw a book, occurring at NEST- the Networked Society Forum on the Networked Society blog.
