RSA - How to Change Education - from the ground up

RSA - How to Change Education - from the ground up | In The Classroom | Scoop.it
Christine Marshall's insight:

'Watch live .. in world-renowned educationalist Sir Ken Robinson’s now legendary 2008 talk at the RSA, he talked about the problems inherent in our current approaches to education, and the need to change from an industrial to an agricultural model. Towards the end of the talk he touched on the need to create new conditions for growth and development. In this long-awaited follow-up talk, Robinson will pick up from where he left off, and outline exactly what those conditions are. He will address the fundamental economic, cultural, social and personal purposes of education, and argue that education should be personalised to every student’s talent, passion, and learning styles, and that creativity should be embedded in the culture of every single school.'

I attended a one-day workshop by Dan Meyer which has given me so much to think about and try in my classroom. I encourage others to look into his work and attend a conference/workshop in person, especially those looking for ways to push themselves as educators and feel inspired.
