Does education hinder innovation?

I have often wondered if when people are taught this is that way it is done does this keep people from breaking out of the box and thinking of new and different way of doing thing? To me not everyone can say ya sure you say this is how we do it, but WHAT IF! And in our field it's all about saying but what if! It's how we can imagine new and in probably and even in possibly attack vectors! I would rather be the guy who protected against something that never happened then the one who failed to protect against what did!

 

Basically, is it bad to teach people one way of thinking instead of making them thing of new ideas for problems?

 

ya, silly me.. hehehe

 

Happy New Years everyone..

And my prediction.. we will embrace more automation because the average person can not see all the areas that we need to see!

 

Be good to each other...

Re: Does education hinder innovation?

US education badly needs effective innovations of scale that can help produce the needed high-quality learning outcomes across the system. The primary focus of educational innovations should be on teaching and learning theory and practice, as well as on the learner, parents, community, society, and its culture. Technology applications need a solid theoretical foundation based on purposeful, systemic research, and a sound pedagogy. One of the critical areas of research and innovation can be cost and time efficiency of the learning.

Several practical recommendations stem out of this paper: how to create a base for large-scale innovations and their implementation; how to increase effectiveness of technology innovations in education, particularly online learning; how to raise time and cost efficiency of education.

Innovations in education are regarded, along with the education system, within the context of a societal supersystem demonstrating their interrelations and interdependencies at all levels. Raising the quality and scale of innovations in education will positively affect education itself and benefit the whole society.
