Sir Ken suggested that digital technology can be used to radically individualized learning since each student learn differently, how digital technology can enhance education experience; this is done without diminishing teacher's role; if the teacher is teaching, which is the enablement of learning, then that role can't be replaced anyway by technology. I think this view is a good reminder, not just in the K12 but I personally think in HE as well. To those engaging in designing or inducing technology into their teaching practices, try looking on those aspect, and see what can come up.

Sue J Wilson's insight:

"...in practice, curriculum maps are almost always not the “living, breathing” documents experts like Heidi Jacobs Hayes promote. They are instead very dead things—lifeless prisons of content to be covered, and boxes to be highlighted...For a curriculum map—or any planned learning experiences—to be vital—and vitally useful—they must be adaptive and circular rather than rigid and linear. ...they must encourage students to continue their pursuit of understanding and self-knowledge."

Bottomline competencies:
Creativity + Adaptability

 

Reasons (agendas) for Education:
- Economic (financial independent)
- Culture (diversity)
- Social (embodied participation)
- Personal (individual differences)

 

Education as human activity, idetifying the focus and work to immprove it. teching is not just the delivery of curriculum. teaching is an art form. teacher need to know enough and also drive passion. teacher needs to 'meet' the student at the point, where learning occurs.

"What do Disney television honcho Anne Sweeney and internationally renowned education theorist Sir Ken Robinson have in common Ideas for unlocking creativity." I think many of tha principals can equally be adapted for adult learning, fostering the formation of professional identity; universities and other academic institutions can also adopt them in their own management and leadership style; as we are fundamentally a creative industry, even if you disagree with that, at least agree that the "workers" area all creative workers.

Unfortunately until we know the full assessment arrangements for our New National Curriculum there is a  very, very strong possibility that creativity and the curriculum will be intrinsically in conflict
