Sir Ken Robinson On Discovering Your Passions | NPR OnPoint | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Interview with Tom Ashbrook

 

How education is jeopardizing creativity:

 

"I’m not blaming teachers for it. I’m not blaming school principals for it. I’ve worked in education my whole life and I work a lot with teachers in schools and I know they’re as concerned about this as I am and everbody else is. I think it’s to do with this culture of standardization. There is a view that the way we improve education is to make it more and more standardized. Many people in schools — particularly in this country, I’d say — are laboring under this sort of dead culture of continuous testing. And one of the results of it has been to reduce the curriculum, to narrow it. So a lot of the things that people, who may be be in their 40s or 50s, will remember from school — things like band and orchestra, putting on plays, lots of interesting after school activities — a lot of those things are being pushed out by this culture of standardized testing. It’s all done with an honorable purpose, I think — the intention is to raise standards, but the irony is it’s really not doing it. And more and more kids are pulling out of school. There’s more and more teachers, I feel, demoralized by it. And I know parents are very concerned about it too."

thanks a lot, for yuor interesting opinión; the chlidren have that many things to their to culture.
Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, June 25, 2013 3:21 PM

The primary focus of education should be helping children to reach their full potential. That can't be done through standardization, because kids don't come in standard packages; it can only happen when we recognize that we need to meet each child's needs.

 

Standards have their place, but only with respect to the quality of what we offer to children and in ensuring that every child is offered the best possible education. Standards that restrict children's opportunities and growth need to be eliminated and replaced with an approach that enriches the educational environment for everyone.

SPOS #317 - Get Writing With Jeff Goins

SPOS #317 - Get Writing With Jeff Goins | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Do you think you have a book in you? A blog? A blog post? A clever tweet? Do you love the industry that you serve? Do you write about it? There's no doubt about it, writing will make you smarter, better and more informed about your life (both personally and professionally). The problem is that most people don't know where to start. They think that writers have some kind of special, unique gift. Jeff Goins can help you. I read his e-book, You Are A Writer (So Start Acting Like One) and it gave me a ton of insight. Ricardo Bueno was kind enough to make an e-intro, and I was thrilled that Jeff agreed to come on to the podcast. Jeff has since published his first book, Wrecked, and continues to blog regularly about how to write and how to become a better writer. Enjoy the conversation...
