Bring on the Learning Revolution – Sir Ken Robinson (TED)

TED recently released this video of Sir Ken Robinson’s talk from TED in Feb 2010. His latest talk Bring on the Learning Revolution is a follow-up to his very popular TED Talk Schools Kill Creativity given in 2006.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

 

 

I have listened to teachers in my school talk about punishing students who do not finish their word documents or powerpoints or the kids who just copy and paste in the answers. It never occures to them to look at the assignments and the work they are setting the students.

What did I learn from this TEDtalk?. We must recognize the need to allowfor  a diversity of talents in education (and in society as a whole) and that education often works best when it is an organic and a real-world , authentic process.
