PII 150: Stop Ancient Schooling: Your Child’s Success Depends on Her School’s Teaching Method [VIDEO: Jack Ma says “We need to stop training our kids for manufacturing jobs”]

If we do not change the way we teach, thirty years from now we will be in trouble.” – Jack Ma, former teacher turned Billionaire founder of AliBaba.com speaking at the 2018 World Economic Forum [Watch full video at the link provided later in this issue]

Today’s parents (especially those in Nigeria/Africa) NEED to understand and accept that the PC/Internet Technology Revolution has PERMANENTLY changed the way REAL EDUCATION can – and should – be done,

As a result the “formal schooling” you provide to your kids MUST be adapted to suit the new needs created in society, by the revolution, so that it can deliver real world relevant know-how to learners.
Otherwise it will continue to be a WASTE of your kids’ time, effort and abilities and YOUR money…

Today’s parents (especially those in Nigeria/Africa) NEED to understand and accept that the PC/Internet Technology Revolution has PERMANENTLY changed the way REAL EDUCATION can – and should – be done,

As a result the “formal schooling” you provide to your kids MUST be adapted to suit the new needs created in society, by the revolution, so that it can deliver real world relevant know-how to learners.
Otherwise it will continue to be a WASTE of your kids’ time, effort and abilities and YOUR money e.g kids will leave schools unable to meet employers’ requirements, and lacking the competence to function in self-employment – despite their years of formal schooling preparation!

One example of how PC/Internet technology is being used to effect new teaching methods is what is seen happening in the Math Tutorial video shown below – with a kid doing the teaching :-)

I NEVER knew this “Common Core Box” method for doing multiplication, yet in this short video a few minutes, I NOW DO. And I did so without leaving my home, at 5.20a.m right from my laptop.
 
The implication of the above, is that MOST of what is being taught in schools can, today, be effectively taught and learned via Smartphones.
Indeed, the FREE online video based learning website  – www.khanacademy.org already PROVES this to be possible, with millions of teachers, students and their parents using it to achieve top class quality (and VERY pocket friendly) learning, regardless of their location, anywhere in the world – including the poorest countries in the developing world.
 
Sadly, for MOST Nigerian/African kids, regardless of how expensive and fancy their schools are, their teachers are unlikely to embrace this approach to teaching – because they remain stuck in the past, holding on to archaic teaching methods that NO LONGER serve the world’s needs!
Little wonder that I am yet to meet ONE Nigerian teacher or school owner who was aware of www.khanacademy.org BEFORE I mentioned it to him/her. And that’s no surprise because their kind would feel threatened by such a platform that makes learners independent of teachers and empowers them to do more thinking rather than engage in rote learning (aka cramming), which the teachers favour!
 

China’s Jack Ma, 54 year old billionaire business owner (worth over $27.9 billion today) once earned as little as $12 per month as a teacher.

His inspiring classic rags to riches story about how he endured countless repeated failures to get where he is today, is well known.
Recently, Jack gave a speech in which he used his experience based insights to tell the world that WE NEED TO CHANGE THE WAY WE EDUCATE OUR KIDS.
It’s a speech I strongly believe EVERY parent, teacher, policy maker and even students need to hear.

Click here to watch this CNN video of him speaking at the World Economic Forum, in which he noted that “We need to stop training our kids for manufacturing jobs”.

Or watch the Youtube Video below:

Jack Ma is right.
More emphasis now needs to be placed by our schools, on teaching learners/kids especially, soft skills – thinking, creativity, innovation are qualities that will equip our kids to succeed in a world where KNOWING stuff is no longer enough, given the robot/automation/artificial intelligence driven nature of today’s societies.

The rest of the world is listening to Jack Ma…but Nigeria/(some countries in Africa) seem(s) NOT to be keen to do so!

I know this from studying trends in the evolution of education worldwide over the past decade – in line with my work on Best Practice Parenting.
Countries like Finland have been leading the way long before now, in this regard. Experts like Robert Kiyosaki have been screaming for decades that we need to change the way we teach kids and WHAT we teach them.
 
But Nigeria continues to lag behind. And out kids are leaving school often boasting few if at all any competencies that make them internationally competitive. And even locally, they struggle to find relevance.
 
I am a product of Nigeria’s schooling system and I know what it feels like to discover that what you learnt in school is NOT enough to help you excel or flourish to your full potential, outside paid employment in your own society.
This is why today, I earn a living using skills I never learne din school after I unlearned, and relearned a lot of the things I was taught in school.
It was a most painfully excruciating experience – especially due to the fact that I got mocked and ridiculed for years, by those with much less schooling than I had, for not being able to fend for myself and my family, inspite of my brilliant academic abilities, and qualifications.
That drove me to spend thousands of hours thinking about what was wrong in the education i’d received, and I also did lots of reading to learn what I was missing, until it clicked.
I realized what I lacked and proceeded to begin, slowly and painstakingly developing the needed competencies.

Today, my new self-taught abilities enable me earn income in ways that others have told me are ground breaking especially out here in Nigeria/Africa.

I am also able to repeatedly defy adversity and failure to bounce back to success, no matter what life throws at me – because I NOW POSSESS these abilities – none of which is taught in formal conventional schools!
 
That’s why I wrote my 62 page White Paper titled “Schooling is a Means to and End, and NOT an End In itselt” – see details of how to get your copy, below.
