Visual Robinson

Thanks to everyone who’s sent me a link to the RSA Animate rendering of Ken Robinson’s Changing Paradigms talk.  It has similar content to the well-known talk he gave at the 2006 TED conference, and the animated version gives the material even more depth and greater accessibility, in my opinion.  It’s also a 12-minute version of a 55-minute talk!

If you haven’t seen it, have a look. I can’t help wondering how this kind of work is zooming around on the web at breakneck speed (which suggests to me that it resonates with people) but when it comes to kids and their learning and schooling, we keep doing what we’ve been doing all along, or some slightly modified version of it.  As though it’s not up to us.
