I’m currently reading Sir Ken Robinson’s new book, ‘Creative Schools’. I’ll have my review of that in due course. For now, if you’ve not seen the animation of his presentation about changing education paradigms, I strongly recommend you view it now.
Sir Ken is spot on about the ways in which we need to not only reorganise but rethink what our education system is for. Although my own focus is on further and higher education rather than schools, there’s so much sense here that can by applied wherever the acts of teaching and learning take place.
