In this very robust conversation Ray and I talk about:
Languages! Why they’re so important for all kinds of reasons including economic, cognitive and cultural; why they’re so hard to learn, but also the many ways technology has changed the language learning game — and will continue to do so.
Why passion continues to be a key predictor of teaching quality; and why ventures like Ray’s, stemming out of a soul searching life decision, could be increasingly common among teachers today
We also talk about the Great Resignation in education, which, paired up with online learning, could mean a lot more “EdTechpreneurs” in some parts of the world, and a lot more overseas teaching and tutors playing an increasingly larger role in the education of others
Finally, Ray talks about what he believes are the reasons why “Higher Ed sucks”, and consequently why radical new forms of teaching are showing up with significantly better measurable outcomes
