TED Talks with Sir Ken Robinson

This has been around for nearly 3 years, but I think it’s worth watching again.

Ideas Worth Sharing:

  • We all have a vested interest in education.
  • We are preparing our students today for a tomorrow that we can only begin to imagine.
  • Creativity, the process of having original ideas that have value,  is as important in education as literacy.
    • Our current education system strips children of their creativity.
    • We must encourage risk-taking – in our students and ourselves.
  • The entire structure of education is shifting, requiring us to rethink our views on intelligence.
    • Intelligence is diverse.
    • Intelligence is dynamic.
    • Intelligence is distinct.

As I begin this journey, I think that it is important for me to seek out words of wisdom…so I read, I watch, and I listen. Sometimes I find ideas that really sum up all I am trying to do. This is one of those times. When I lose my way…when I forget where I’m going, I hope to come back to this video. I think it should be required viewing for all those in the position to make decisions about our schools and their future.

The speaker, by the way, is Chris Lehmann – principal of the Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia.
