Sir Ken Robinson: ‘The education system is a dangerous myth’ | tesconnect

Sir Ken Robinson: ‘The education system is a dangerous myth’ | tesconnect | Education | Scoop.it
I’m often asked the same questions: what’s going wrong in education? Why? If you could reinvent education, what would it look like? Would you have schools? Would there be different types? What would go on in them? Would everyone have to go, and how old would they have to be? Would there be tests? If you say I can make a difference in education, where do I begin?

What Does Critical Thinking Mean in Education ?

What Does Critical Thinking Mean in Education ? | Education | Scoop.it

Critical thinking is an important skill in the  21st century learning. Education's overall goal is to produce students that will be able to think critically and not just take in things like a parrot. Of course there is a bunch of other important skills out there but this particular one stands out from the crowd. The thing about ttis skill is that while almost all  teachers agree upon its priority in education only few really know what it really means
