Elon Musk has revealed the unconventional way he educates his kids in a bid to keep them engaged and excited.
Over the weekend, the billionaire joined a chat room on the new and popular app Clubhouse – where fans could ask questions.
During the live interview one person asked about the best way to educate a five-year-old in today’s world.
Elon said he believed the internet is the most important tool in his kids’ education.
He revealed he often uses YouTube and Reddit to educate his children.
The dad-of-six said: “Well, my observation is that my kids were mostly educated by YouTube and Reddit.
“I guess there were lessons as well, but judging by the amount of time they spent online, it seemed like most of their education is actually coming from online.”
He admitted the need for education to be “as interesting and exciting as possible” and acknowledged the help of video games as tools.
“If kids can be super engaged in video games, there’s a way for them to be super engaged in education as well,” Musk said.
Elon’s kids who go to Ad Astra, the school he co-founded in 2014 also plays a huge part in their learning.
He said the kids also learn from their classmates, which include the kids of his SpaceX employees.
The unique school is known for learning focused on artificial intelligence, coding and applied science, reports Business Insider.
Under its curriculum foreign languages are not included as Musk believes the subject will become irrelevant with real-time translation software.
Elon has six kids, with a set of 17-year-old twins, 15-year-old triplets and a nine-month old baby.
The boss of electronic car titans Tesla and SpaceX, as well as the founder of online payment service PayPal, Musk boasts a net worth of around $185bn (£136bn) following a spike in the share price of his electronic car company.
