Professor Noam Chomsky on Education




Noam Chomsky

"It is not important what we cover, it is important what we discover."


Professor Noam Chomsky is a well know educator and linguistic among other important things. 

It is as a linguistic that I knew him in college reading his works.

But now as an educator, I want to share with you his last interview on Education during WISE Summit 2012; November 13-15 in Quatar. 

Some of you already watched it, but his eminent voice about building the future of education and free education systems is so important that I think it will be  interesting hear him again.

Topics of the interview:

Noam Chomsky talks on the importance of interaction and participation in the classroom, the urgent need to address funding, the role of modern technology to improve access to education and what more needs to be done to build the future of education.

Watch the video below:





"The future education should be regarding as a way of offering opportunities and encourage the learners to pursue in their own ways so they develop their own creative capacities and learn to become productive free people in a free society."

It is the kind of education I like and practice with my students. The pedagogical change and innovation in Secondary education through the disruptive learning in teaching activities is on the capacity to encourage our students to discover and develop an independent thinking.


"Independent thinking come through discovery"
