The atrocious violence that swept through Kenya after Decemberís disputed presidential election has meant untold misery for children.Hundreds of thousands of children have been displaced, now forced to live in bleak camps and tents across the country. The violence erupted as children sought to begin their new school year. Typically a sanctuary for millions of Kenyan children, this new education year commenced with burning schools, teachers in hiding far from their classrooms, and students fleeing homes as their precious books and uniforms were turned to ashes. Tonight thousands of Kenyan children will sleep with these nightmares, hungry and in crowded rooms. When they wake, many have no schools to go to. But amid the turmoil, UNICEF is ensuring protection and normalcy for as many children as it can. Education is providing a means.Safe now and back at a UNICEF-supported school on the edge of Nairobiís biggest slum, young Pinto Omondi has some advice for his countryís leaders.

*******www.globalchange**** Old style education focus on memory and knowledge. New style education needs to focus on how to find immediate answers to complex problems from a starting point of ignorance, using new technology. How education promotes useless skills and neglects primary requirements eg instant summary of state of knowledge, fine to draw heavily on existing material. But in education such a summary could be rejected as plagiarism. But in business originality is often less important than a superb summary. Radical changes needed in examinations, assessments. Future of examinations – online, using keyboard to prepare answers, assistance is allowed, using existing sources is encouraged. Impact of Google on education. Impact on Universities. Need to teach evaluation methods to assess authority of online sources. References.
