36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Sir Ken Robinson offers a critique of contemporary education and its origins, and argues for creative and collaborative transformation in the classroom.


The aim for education in Australia must be to create a nation where the creative talents of all the people are used to build a true enterprise economy. As a nation, we cannot rely on a small elite. We need the creativity, enterprise and scholarship of all our people.
