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  Our natural learning curiosity and creative intelligence can be ruined by traditional out of date factory model academic systems.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!"

SIR KEN ROBINSON - ATLANTIC RIM SPEECH

Sir Ken is always worth listening to at the beginning of the year as educators set the path for whole "System Directions", "School Improvement Plans" or  when designing "whats happening "in a classroom as teachers develop their program.

This is a must listen to for all educators as they set the directions for the year.

We need to develop an environment of "Deep Learning" (Fullan) where kids love to be engaged in their learning at every grade and for preparing future ready students !

A MUST WATCH!

HAVE A GREAT YEAR!

 Some Quotes are included below:

Creativity 
"Creativity now is as important in education as literacy, and we should treat it with the same status." That's one of the many quotes that Sir Ken Robinson's made in his 2006 lecture on rethinking the nation's schools. That become one of the most popular TED talks — with more than 50 million views.

More to Education Than Test Scores
There's so much pressure put on parents to make them believe that a good school is defined by high test scores and high rates of entrance to college and university, but there's a lot more to education than that. You want to make sure that there is a real balance and dynamism in the school curriculum.  

Balance in Curriculum Must Include the Arts
We've seen a reduction in things like arts programs, in recess, in practical vocational programs, because they're not subject to standardized tests. The emphasis on STEM — science technology engineering and math — is important. But the arts, music, drama, the humanities, physical education, are just as important.

Balance in Assessments
Also look at the quality of teaching and assessment strategies.
It's about asking what the assessment's are for.
It should ideally be there to support, encourage and inform children's development and achievement.

Environment and Relationships
Look at what's on the walls. Is there kids' work on the walls? Exhibitions? That also taps into the overall culture — you know, what sort of values a school is promoting and how closely does it work with parents and the broader community.

Check out this article for more ideas to reflect on in your school!
It's outstanding!
