    Default How Technology Can Transform Education [VIDEO]

    http://mashable.com/2012/01/20/scott-mcnealy-education/

    As co-founder and CEO of Sun Microsystems, one of the predominant companies of the first Internet boom, Scott McNealy was a huge proponent of open source software.

    Since leaving Sun in 2010, McNealy has turned his focus to the world of education through non-profit Curriki.org and startup Wayin. The former was started inside Sun, applying open source principles to the world of education, creating a wiki environment for teaching materials for K-12 classes. The latter is a Q&A platform that can be utilized by teachers to create a more interactive learning environment.

    Last week, McNealy went to CES to keynote the HigherEdTECH Summit to talk about how technology can transform the education space. Mashable had a chance to catch up with him beforehand, where he told us about his current projects, the role he sees digital playing in the education space and his view on key technology trends.

    Check out the video above for McNealy’s provocative thoughts on the road ahead.

    Thanks Mark, very interesting video! I particularly like Scott McNealy's idea about no child left behind and no child held back whihc can definately be achieved through online interactive teaching/learning methods.
