In this question based education keynote, Lawrence Krauss says education should start by teaching students how to address questions, rather than teaching them the answers to those questions.
The answers don't matter, according to Krauss. A professor and author, Krauss says the real value of education lies understanding the important questions and how to approach finding the answers. In this keynote, Krauss is especially focused on science education, which he says holds the most interesting questions of all of the subjects.
Krauss continues by saying the biggest mistake a teacher can make is assuming their students are interested in what they're talking about. Instead, Krauss suggests going out to where the students are and let them know what you're teaching is relevant to what they're interested in.
"You have to seduce them," says Krauss.
