Debating the Future of Education on Singularity Hub
At the end of 2015, I contributed an article to the Singularity Hub that spurred a provocative and sustained debate about the role of technological education. While some organizations and politicians have recently suggested that programming (of computer code) should be taught to everybody, I argued that there are many circumstances in which this is a poor idea. It's encouraging that so many people are thinking critically about how to re-imagine education and we hope that the particular needs of vulnerable populations are given particular weight.
