Zhao updates the activities at the Confucius Center, a pioneering research-based institute providing online Chinese language courses for K-12 and adult learners.
He talks about the hard time teachers have competing with computers and how today’s kids are comfortable learning in digital environments. And he weighs in on Michigan’s new curriculum standards. He also describes digital farms, useful knowledge, and global citizenship. He says the digital revolution and globalization are everywhere and that “no man can do a machine’s job.”
At MSU, Zhao also leads the Center for Teaching and Technology and the U.S.-China Center for Research on Educational Excellence.
