RSA Animate: Ken Robinson on Changing Education

If you haven't seen it already, you really should. A great talk. A great speaker. Great ideas.

Quick summary of some good bits...

Education is still built on Industrial paradigms: directing children into academic vs non-academic streams; teaching children in batches, according to their date of manufacture; and ensuring that they are anaesthetised to swallow irrelevant and dogmatic content during an aesthetically exciting and diverse times.

Great talks inspire change. I love this stuff.

It is not facts that inspire people to action - it is the opinions they hold about those facts.
