Gooru’s Prasad Ram talks about the future of education (video)

Rudi Lewis

This past week in New York, Gooru CEO Prasad Ram participated in a panel entitled “GAMECHANGERS: WHAT COULD EDUCATION LOOK LIKE IN FIVE YEARS?”.  The panel was part of the New York Times’ Schools For Tomorrow conference.  Last month, Idaho administrators got a glimpse of that same future, without having to visit crowded Manhattan, when Prasad (or “Pram” as he prefers,) visited downtown Boise to talk about the joys of learning as a “transfer of energy from teacher to student,” and how Gooru is working in concert with Silverback Learning Solutions to help bring personalized learning environments to life.

I have attached links to the videos from both conferences below.  Enjoy!

  1. Charlotte says:

    That is exactly right, “The Transfer of Engergy from Teacher to Student”. But we must be careful in what type of energy–and so it begins with the teacher. We hope and pray that the teacher-leaders with the right heart and energy stay in this educational system despite all the challenges. And we pray they do share with students their positive energy and love for learning. Technology will change the game. But it is still the teacher connecting with the student, sharing that energy that makes all the difference.
