Ken Robinson: Changing education paradigms
One of the most inspiring talks ever! perfect marriage between content & form would love to translate it (to Hebrew)! A pity that Sir Robinson's extremely important message does not get enough exposure, at the places it should, such as govmnt education departments all over the world. i am not sure that the people that deifne the education models saw this or listened to his ideas.. It is indeed time for this paradigm shift, the sooner the better Living in one of the countries appraised for its brains, I am really concerned that this may be a thing of the pas. Looking into the future, I dont see much hope for unless a serious shift in the way we eductae our children (ie,future humankind) indeed takes place.. I know that educators in my country are in most cases out dated and challenged in face of the changing times & needs- I doubt they can bring on this revolution. It should be carefully orchestrated- and this can be realized only if the $$ people up there understand that education deserves investing
