Thank you for this! I'm a high school student, and this really showed me a new perspective. I also must say that who I am today has been greatly influenced by those very teachers who kept challenging me and, as you put it, gave me what I needed instead of what I wanted. Even though sometimes school can be not so "fun", eventually all our learning experiences pay off.

Wonderful stuff. This has inspired me to go deeper on a piece I’m working on about the problem of the “infinitely patient digital tutor.”

Thanks! That phrase, “infinitely patient digital tutor” has also wormed its way into my brain. I’ve been thinking about it a lot since Khan released that demo video with his son. I look forward to reading your thoughts!
