TED Talks Education: Teachers Need Real Feedback
We all need people who will give us feedback – that’s how we improve professionally. But unfortunately, says Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, there is one group of people who get almost no systematic feedback to help them do their jobs better – teachers. He says the coaching system we have in place today is putting America’s global leadership at risk.
In this TEDTalks video, Gates suggests that even great teachers can get better with smart feedback, and lays out a program from his foundation to bring timely tools for improvement to every classroom. WATCH: http://to.pbs.org/1KNDiSo
