FUSE in Education

Long-time readers of the Yahoo! Search blog have seen the acronym FUSE a few times already. FUSE comes from our vision for search: Find, Use, Share, and Expand all human knowledge.

As I watched the 20 minute video of Richard Baraniuk’s presentation at TED 2006, I realized that the Connexions project he spoke of (and his larger vision for how technology can improve education) is a fantastic example of FUSE in the world of education.

If you have 20 minutes to spare, check out the video. Starting with Apple’s “Create, Rip, Mix, and Burn” slogan, he paints a compelling vision for the future of education and open technology.

More videos from TED 2006 are being posed on the TED Blog and on TED Talks.
