    How can we build a future-proof education

    Education has not changed for hundreds of years now. Any educational institution you come across with is based around the concept of teaching. Meaning, there is always a teacher - a source of knowledge, if you will. This method has been OK for the past, but with no access to great teachers, the education knowledge gap worldwide is starting to get out of hand. In order to provide equal opportunity of access to great education worldwide, we must rethink the core principles.
