Trends in Ed, 11.29.2010 : To change the education paradigms
In response to a video about Chinese School on Vialogue, I found the above video to be inspiring and answered many questions raised inn the Chinese School video. The featured video is about education in America. Sir Ken Robinson, world-renowned education and creativity expert and recipient of the Royal Society of the Art's (RSA) Benjamin Franklin Award, gave the talk at the RSA. Below are a few key points of his talk 1. Our public education system was born of the industrial revolution. Sitting still in class all day is just conditioning for being bored at a repetitive assembly line job. 2. To change the Education Paradigms, we need to think differently about human capacity and get over the old conception of Academic, non-Academic, Abstract, Theoretical…etc 3. Most great learning happens in groups- Collaboration is the stuff of growth. 4. The current education system is crucially due to the culture of our institution: the habits of our institution and the habitats they occupy.
