Rethinking the Education Paradigm

Ken Robinson’s talk animated.

What more can I say… well of course I think he’s right. We have got to find a better way of educating our youth. One of the guiding principles of humanity is that we want our childrens’ lives to be better than our own. Yet with education it almost seems that we are putting our children through the system out of tradition rather than thought.

My own success in education I feel is more in spite of the education system I went through than because of it.

To be successful educators we must start to ask two very important questions. What does it mean to be educated in the modern world? And how can we help our students reach that goal?
