The Future of Education; What Everyone Needs To Know…

September 20, 2023

Episode 154


But Nobody's Talking About!

The latest episode of Capability Amplifier just dropped and it's a doozy. (If you have kids, grandkids, nieces or nephews… you really need to check this one out.)

In this jam-packed episode, Dan and Mike dove deep into discussions about the future of education and how learning really happens.

As two entrepreneurs who forged their own paths outside the traditional education system, they had a fascinating conversation about what's broken in education today and how learning can be improved for the next generation.

A few highlights:

  • Dan and Mike questioned whether formal education systems are even necessary anymore in the age of the internet and Ai. Knowledge is everywhere now – do we really need schools and universities?
  • Dan shared his perspective that rigid educational systems stifle creativity. True learning happens through experience and creation, not memorizing facts in classrooms.
  • Mike described his vision for the future – a world where every child can launch a business by age 12-14, with the help of technology like Ai. Way better than saddling them with student debt!
  • They explored the idea that the greatest “educational system” is freeing yourself from other people's systems and forging your own path.

They covered a ton more ground – including the power of apprenticeship, the military origins of many Fortune 500 CEOs and the entrepreneurial energy pulsing through places like MIT.

This was one of their most exciting and enlightening sessions yet. Dan is a master provocateur and always gets Mike's neurons firing!
