Jason 3/4

.......and access is not a goal.

**The idea is the easy part......
**

Audrey Watters and John Spencer both have articles up talking about the problems with TED. There is a

lot there and worth a read. They hit on similar criticisms. Audrey says, "You are not supposed to

interrogate a TED Talk." and John wrote, "TED Talks become a sort of Secular Scripture offering a script

to fix humanity." Some of the TED ideas are bad. Some are good. That's expected.

I have a different issue. My problem isn't with TED. I happen to like quite a few talks. TED is simply

mirroring our values.1

My problem is that we place too much value on the idea and not enough on the work.

Sugata Mitra has an idea. He wants to open a School in the Cloud. Fine. Everyone has ideas. My

question isn't about his idea it's about his willingness to put the work in to make it happen and keep it

happening.

You've got an idea? So do a million other people. Let's stop celebrating ideas. Celebrate those standing

waste deep in the muck with dirt in their nails and sweat on their face.

**....and access is not a goal.
**

Bill Gates and Will.I.Am want everyone to have the opportunity to code.2

Ok. California wanted every

8th grader to take Algebra. They said provide access and achievement will follow. Those of us in

California can tell you how that went.

Providing access is the absolute minimum that we can possibly do and still feel like we've accomplished

something.

(edit: I should link this for a scholarly view on access)

1: Or at least the type of values that someone who would watch a TED talk has.

1.5: I avoided ranting about Alfie Kohn. Be proud.

2: I'm not a fan of the idea itself, but I'm talking specifically about access and opportunity as goals. Also

not a fan of the School in the Cloud. Mostly seems like 'access' but with the computer. It's like opening a

school with an infinite number of textbooks available and some of them talk and have moving pictures

and most are focused on cats.
