How to Change Education
From the Ground Up
Sir Ken Robinson
Lecturing in London at the RSA on July 1, 2013
Teachers can be just as influential as policy makers. Their role is to enable learning.
Often asking the questions, rather than providing answers, is the way to do it. As we teachers change our practices, tailoring education to the individual, we start to affect the whole. The culture begins to change, too.
Sir Ken Robinson makes the case clearly and humorously. In the tradition of Dewey, Montessori, and Whitehead, Ken Robinson champions a kind of education that is holistic, pluralistic, and personalized.
The lecture was offered live at the RSA in London on July 1, 2013. The question and answer section at the end - fast forward to 45 minutes -- is especially helpful.
