Here’s another second bite on how technology can transform education. This teacher/blogger talks about why, when guitars had been around for centuries, the electric guitar suddenly transformed music. His intriguing answer is:
1) Mass production: Enough instruments had to be available to anyone how could afford one.
2) Inspiration: Most importantly, artists had to emerge who could use this innovation to inspire others: Chuck Berry, Eric Clapton, and Jimi Hendrix, etc.
So how do we all become guitar heroes? Any thoughts?
