This talk of Sir Ken Robinson is an absolute classic when it comes to rethinking education. This is why it’s part of our recommended reading list. Definitely a must see.
Short: Robinson recommends to stop assembly line learning and to start creating interest and curiosity. In a very impressive way he illustrates why the education we provide today are suited for obedience, compliance and knowledge assembly lines, but not useful for a future in a multimedia world. Robinson but doesn’t stop at criticizing of the status-quo, he proposes alternatives and new options.
