TED: Bill Gates on how to make a teacher great

Bill Gates takes on the education system, especially the difference between good and bad teaching. Many of the solutions he refers to are typical knowledge management problems. For example, how can we learn from good teachers? Or, how can we keep on improving? One of the solutions he mentions is to videotape the teaching in the classrooms. The videos can then be studied to transfer good skills or to learn from mistakes. I'm just glad that Gates has got the education system in focus now. We can finally expect some movement.
