Sir Ken Robinson has to be one of the most inspirational speakers of education.
I just finished reading Teaching Naked, by Jose Bowen that speaks to the changes of education and how we as adult educators need to be open and change our ways because our ultimate goal is to create interactive, engaging and positive learning environments…well, it got me thinking about this Ted Talk.
In this talk from RSA Animate, Sir Ken Robinson lays out the link between 3 troubling trends: rising drop-out rates, schools’ dwindling stake in the arts, and ADHD. An important, timely talk for parents and teachers.
Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson challenges the way we’re educating our children. He champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.
