SIR KEN ROBINSON

REIMAGINE LEARNING THAT CAN CHANGE THE WORLD

This is an outstanding presentation with the important following messages.

Studies show, the lack of physical play is resulting in students doing worse in school.

Schools set up a system that celebrates academic marks but academic marks are not the only way to be intelligent.  We are developing a narrow concept of what the mind can do.

We marginalized shop, family studies, guidance, music …..why???
Not all academic learners have similar aptitudes and strengths. 
Students are smart IN DIFFERENT WAYS.

All kids are different.  They are not standardized widgets !  This is not rocket science
Look at siblings and how different they are !!!!!   

Academic systems pushing students to accomplish high marks and meeting high standards have one other unfortunate high statistic.  High incidence of suicide.
 
We have different learning styles and interests.  Our natural learning curiosity and creative intelligence can be ruined by traditional out of date factory model academic systems. 

When we use a balanced STEAM approach to education, the research shows the students are more engaged. Increased student engagement also evaporates discipline issue. 

"It's not time to fix the old system of education, it is time to change it!"
