This TED Talk, How Four Simple Words Can Solve Education’s Biggest Problem, is an updated version. The original video did not contain the beginning of the presentation and many slides were missing.

If you’ve seen the TED talk, you know I tell the story of Tori, who struggled with writing in elementary school in a world that attempted to measure her learning, while ignoring her dyslexia–an issue outside of the classroom that impacts her performance in it.

The original TED talk video left out many of the slides that helped bring Tori’s amazing story and the message about SE2R feedback to life.

Even if you’ve seen the first video, please view this updated version. Then Share it with friends and colleagues. Talk about it on Facebook and Twitter. Consider the impact a change of this magnitude might have on education and on children around the world.

Remember, these four simple words can solve education’s biggest problem by completely eliminating traditional grades.
