TEDxYouth@KL – Willie Poh – Learning vs Education – which will save the world?

Willie Poh believes education is the key to ‘saving’ the world. He has a bone to pick with outdated education systems which kill student interest in learning. He believes that the face of education needs to, and will soon shift drastically in the face of technology, and fully intends to be a driver of that change. As a lecturer he has incorporated experiential learning, contextual examples and alternative learning experiences. He also believes in taking education outside of the classroom, founding a mini hackerspace for his students. A student leader since his university days, he has been involved in a myriad of student organizations ranging from the student press and debating to astronomy.
