The current method of studying for a degree is inefficient. Students with whole days off to “think” is par for the course, and brighter students, it is often mooted, could easily complete a degree in 18 months, especially with online, on-demand tuition. “But would they let you?” asks Ray. “A large part of the typical three-year process is that people who are elderly in academia insist a degree takes a certain amount of time because that’s what they had to do. I don’t see that changing soon.” Nor does Ray see much of a revolution in the classroom, for younger children especially. “I think that under the age of 13 or so, children learn through relationships with teachers and with each other in the classroom, so I’m certain that’s not going to change.”
Nothing to see here, then, unless you were considering investing in a company that promised to hook kids up to iPads and do away with teachers.
