Kettering :: essays research papers

Kettering Tape   Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  In listening to Kettering’s lecture there are five main points that I was able to pick out: 1.  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Point of view of failure – The example he gave was that a person going to grades K – 12 take several tests and if they fail just one they are out, however inventors can fail 999 times but if they succeed just once then they are a success not a failure. 2.  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  There are two kinds of education – Kettering claims that one kind of education is being specialized in one particular subject, and the second form of education is knowing a little bit on a wide variety of subjects. This second form is what Kettering claims to be how inventors were educated. 3.  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚   I.Q. Tests – Kettering claimed that I.Q. tests have nothing to do with the person taking the test, but rather, what the person administering the test wants them to be. 4.  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Teach kids the future – We are going to spend our time in the future not in the past, so why do we not study the future and study what is going to happen rather than what has already happened that we cannot change. We should educate people for the next 15 – 20 years. 5.  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  The â€Å"problem† – Kettering states â€Å"The ‘Problem’ has to be the ‘boss’.† From what I get of this he means that you have to come up with a resolution from the problem. The problem has to be the main focus for a reasonable solution to be approached. What do I think of what Kettering said? Where is he right? Where is he wrong? Why?   Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  I cannot say that I agree totally with what he says, but then again I cannot say I totally disagree. He brings up several points that are infinitely arguable. I do agree with the two kinds of education that are stated in number two above. I don’t think there is one best way to teach children wether it be specialized in one subject, or in a wide variety of subjects as each child learns differently and at their own pace.   Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  Ã‚  I don’t think that we can teach children or adults the future.
