Bill Gates: Teachers need real feedback! ‘Smart Feedback’

Until recently, many teachers only got one word of feedback a year: “satisfactory.” And with no feedback, no coaching, there’s just no way to improve. Bill Gates suggests that even great teachers can get better with smart feedback — and lays out a program from his foundation to bring it to every classroom.

Bill Gates is certainly an industry leader and makes some excellent points in his TED TALK. If you get a chance listen to his ideas. I’ll reflect and then add my comment. His suggestions are great but are they sustainable and achievable? Like to hear your ideas…

Cheers Nina
