In his keynote address at the 2017 World Educator of the Year Summit, a panel discussion in Los Angeles, Mark Twain was asked if the future of education should be focused on “learning the most” and “learning for the most.”
“The future of learning is learning the most,” Twain replied.
“This is not just a way to improve our understanding of what we do.
It’s a way of thinking about what we can do for people,” he said.
Twain said this type of thinking was at the heart of the education revolution of the 20th century.
