In Kristian’s TEDx Talk, “Pencil Cases, Text Books and Social Media”, he proposes that the key to furthering national development in a young nation such as The Bahamas, is improving the educational system. His idea is that 21st century technology, including social media, can be used to begin the process of equalizing the standard of education that is available to students throughout the entire archipelago.
