Autonomous, professor-less coding school looks to reinvent teaching and learning - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

Brittany Bir, the chief operating officer of the U.S. campus for French coding school 42, says that education should be like children learning to walk and to talk and is better suited in the art of practice and doing, rather than listening under a professor. Bir, a former student of the coding academy, says that a typical day in the school is students receiving an assignment, interfacing with each other and researching online, and setting out to self-teach the curriculum. The Silicon Valley-based campus, which currently enrolls 250 students, is part of 42's global effort to credential 10,000 learners in five years.
