In this presentation, Professor Yong Zhao calls for a paradigm shift in education. Dr. Zhao brings extensive evidence to show that every individual has both potential and need to become great. To help each and every student achieve their greatness, we need a different kind of education that focuses on enhancing the unique strengths and passion of each student. Education is to help each and every student discover and develop their strengths and passions with the goal to create value for others and the world. To do so, we need to make education personalizable by the student, instead of personalized for the student.
