Watch Bill Gates release mosquitoes to TED audience

Bill Gates talks about malaria and he says, “I brought some here so you can experience this and we’ll let those roam around the auditorium a little bit. There’s no reason only poor people should have this experience.” He then proceed to opening a jar of mosquito slightly and letting some mosquitoes out! You can see it somewhere at 5:10 of the video. The TED organizers quickly responded confirming the mosquitoes are malaria-free. Bill Gates hopes to solve some of the world’s biggest problems using a new kind of philanthropy. In a passionate and, yes, funny 18 minutes, he asks us to consider two big questions and how we might answer them.

Teaching teaching and understanding understanding

I think there’re many things teachers can learn about teaching in this video material. Most lecturers in my university should, perhaps, take a look at this video.

I think I may have to relearn learning too. Good points.
