  9. 9. How can education systems start to deliver all the things that Israelis learn outside of school?
  10. 10. “If I had asked people what they wanted they would have told me ‘a faster horse’” — Henry Ford
  11. 11. Every edtech company needs to ask itself: are we working on “a faster horse” or part of the “car” of education? Reform vs. Reinvention
  12. 12. jkjkjkj Reform vs. Reinvention General Knowledge Leadership Teamwork Strategic Thinking Emotional Intelligence Mission- orientation Decision Making Cross Domain Thinking Communications Finding Knowledge
  13. 13. 5 Reinvention Principles • Real : not made up problems • Responsibility : what you are doing matters • Rigorous : teacher’s job: always push for more than good enough • Meaning : each student works on what moves them • Broad and focused : go out of comfort zone, combine fields
  14. 14. 1 Mega Principle Education should be a constant discovery process for every student’s human potential. Human potential sweet spot = What you love + What you are good at Sweet spot changes over time, education should let each student dive into what they love and what they good at, while constantly exposing them to other things.
  15. 15. Mindset trumps tech Changing mindset is key. Technology that distracts from mindset change is useless; technology that helps build a new mindset is helpful.
  16. 16. 5 Big Subversive Ideas • 90% lecture >>> 10% lecture • Turn 12th grade into a mechina • Open most tests to the internet • More play! • Eliminate subjects • More Project Weeks!
  17. 17. Education and Start-Up Nation • Start-Up Nation must grow substantially to remain #2 ecosystem in the world • Obstacle to growth is not lack of big companies, it’s human capital • Reinventing education is necessary increase human capital • The countries that reinvent education first will be considered the most innovative countries in the world and will become magnets for talent
  18. 18. We can do this • We already have the IP for reinventing education, that’s how we became Start-Up Nation. • We know how to produce people who are mission- oriented, can lead, work in teams, and take responsibility. We know how to give young people the experience of succeeding with challenges that they could not dream of overcoming. • Now we just have to figure out how to do this inside the education system and not just outside of it!
