I post about Sir Ken Robinson way too much, but he rocks so watch this 2 part interview about “Schools Killing Creativity” (part 1, part 2), and of course if you don’t know who he is, watch his TED talk afte the jump with the 2 video interviews. (some of my favorite ted talks here)
He made a great point about the age thing. Why would you group together kids who are the same age but not at the same ability?
I’d love to see schools change, but I feel it would be a gradual and extremely slow process.
The difference between academic ability and intelligence is like the elephant in the room, and no one is doing anything about it.
I love this guy. He makes so much sense, I feel like my head is going to explode.
d, for sure, sir ken rocks!
you should check out the rest of the ted videos… a promise to make your head explode
