Sir Ken Robinson: How to Create a Culture For Valuable Learning

Sir Ken Robinson: How to Create a Culture For Valuable Learning | Australian Curriculum Resources | Scoop.it
There are still many disagreements about how to improve the education system so that children graduate with the skills and dispositions they will need to succeed in life. Education reform discussions often center on how to tweak existing mechanisms, but what if the system itself is creating the problems educators and policymakers are trying to solve? That’s the theory favored by author and TED-talk sensation Sir Ken Robinson.

We designed schools for conformity and compliance and they do a wonderful job, but the world we inhabit is diverse. We end up defining intelligence in a narrow way, excluding large numbers of students.

Ken Robinson proposes letting students explore what the world and learning mean to them. There is a John Dewey element in his use of language i.e. growing.

Can technology replace teachers? You asked Google – here’s the answer

Can technology replace teachers? You asked Google – here’s the answer | Australian Curriculum Resources | Scoop.it
Anxiety about losing your job to technology is both a rational and growing fear. Andy Haldane, the chief economist at the Bank of England, recently estimated that 15m jobs in the UK were threatened by automation. Technology is reaching such levels of sophistication that it is capable not only of manual tasks but cognitive ones too, putting a wide range of jobs are at risk. The areas most vulnerable include driving and administrative work. But according to a report from Oxford University that looked at over 700 areas of work, teaching at all levels across the educational spectrum is a safe bet.

"The best teachers will use technology in the classroom as part of an expanding toolkit, and hopefully they’ll see the benefits of smarter technology in the form of reduced clerical work. Classrooms will continue to change shape, but it’s safe to assume that there will be a human teacher at the front of them for a long time yet."

Teaching is a performance.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, September 8, 2017 2:12 PM
Teaching is a emotionally demanding. It is about being there for students we teach in deep and relational ways. The idea of starting as a part-time teacher is interesting. It has a downside. Do we end up with teachers only being part-time? That runs against the relational aspects of teaching. What might be in order is teachers teaching together and helping one another.

The mind is ruled by the unconscious mind, it looks for patterns, confusion can be good for learning, mirror neurons allow us to learn from others, and feelings drive behavior.
