In 2010, a movie came out in theaters that highlighted a growing problem in our education system: that students are finding it more challenging to get a quality education based on the current paradigm. Waiting for ‘Superman’ is certainly a powerful film and follows several students striving to go to a charter school in pursuit of better learning.
While the film raised controversial issues, a thought came to me: students are being distracted by the problems that have become endemic to the current education system and are struggling to learn. So in light of this, could technology step in to complement what they’re being taught and better prepare them for the working world and life?
Is the education technology sector ‘Superman’?
