Sir Ken Robinson – New Education Paradigm

6 Nov

Thanks to Mel for this one.

He can sound a little pious, but his ideas are thought provoking. I like his views on the benefits collaboration and his criticisms of standardisation. What do you think?

    Yes, brilliant. In the same area as David Eggans. I agree group work is the best way to develop ideas. But the teenager can be as resistant to working this way, as they are in conventional, boring classrooms. Hallam kids for example offered that kind of choice would use the time to gossip. They would then get onto the task when you came over to their group. I have been able to get it to work with groups constructing stories, children’s books etc. Mind mapping is a brilliant addition to group work. Certainly teachers find it extremely soul destroying being locked into curricula that have been design by a few other teachers and then imposed upon them. Thank Mel for this excellent, stimulating video.
