Presentation Zen & Learning: Sir Ken Robinson Gives Best Talk Yet, TED & Education

Presentation Zen & Learning: Sir Ken Robinson Gives Best Talk Yet, TED & Education | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

Creativity and education expert Sir Ken Robinson delivered two amazingly popular TED Talks prior to his newest, and what could be his best to date in 2013.


Excerpted from a Garr Reynolds post:

     

_________________________
   
Good presentation is a balance of information, persuasion, and inspiration... [to] light a spark and point the way.

     

_________________________

   

His first talk http://bit.ly/1fjhkH6 —presented sans multimedia in the true Sir Ken Robinson style — was made in 2006 and is the most viewed TED talk of all time.

   

His follow-up talk given in 2010 http://bit.ly/1f6zZp2 also has been downloaded millions of times.

      

I have seen Sir Ken speak many times and he is always inspiring and engaging, but his latest TED talk, http://bit.ly/IEXH0Q presented at TED Talks Education in April of this year, is my favorite yet.
    
Good presentation is a balance of information, persuasion, and inspiration.

      

Presentations related to leadership must necessarily light a spark and point the way.

   

Sir Ken does not scream or jump up and down but he nonetheless ignites, provokes, and inspires his live audience, and anyone else who cares to listen to his presentation on line, in a meaningful and memorable way.

   

Millions of people have seen his latest talk, but just in case you have not, please set aside about 20 minutes to watch this outstanding, short TED talk.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Sir Ken, with humor, discusses conformity and bureaucracy, as a problem in getting a "real" education, including the arts, humanities.  He mentions low-grade clerical work "figiting" often diagnosed as ADHD, and children who suffer from "childhood" and igniting the spark of curiousity, flourishing.

Individualized teaching and learning, and the system has to engage them, raising the status of the teaching profession, investing in professional development, devolving responsibility to the school level for getting the job done.  ~  Deb

From our Agile Learning http://www.scoop.it/t/agile-social-learning 

news:  This is included in BEST of the BEST as a model of what inspires, and motivates.  

Sir Ken gives examples and insights into individualized learning useful in business, for professional development as well as and in education.  

It is usefully provocative.  Enjoy! ~  Deb

A Personalized Learning Model - to Guide Education Technology Investments

A Personalized Learning Model - to Guide Education Technology Investments | Agile Learning | Scoop.it

Most of our education technology investments involve some combination of improving the state of practice in "What Don't I Know" - "How Do I Learn This?" and "How Did I Do?"

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

This is part 3 of a 3 series set of short, clear blog posts advocating for adaptive learning with feedback.   The author offers precise definitions of the elements.



These are useful concepts in the series, especially the problem of the bell curve in Part 1, which I'll address soon in my Talent & Performance Development curation stream.
