What Bill Gates is learning online

He adds: “I find it stunning that the educational schools are not training teachers to use the KIPP way of teaching classes. What the heck is going on with schools of education, and what is the field going to do to get some of them to get involved in this kind of work?”

There’s also a video with Gates discussing what he sees as the strengths and weaknesses of American public education on CNN, although you need Microsoft Silverlight to watch it.

Other site content includes Gates’ lessons from the swine flu pandemic, an urgent plea for help in Haiti, and a podcast series on energy and climate change, which discusses the need to develop alternative sources of energy.
