Well-worth watching the discussion that followed with Sir Ken Robinson, Keri Facer and Mick Waters, if you have an hour.

Thank you, Tom, for posting this. I truly hope that more and more educators and institutions are going to embrace these ideas presented by Sir Ken Robinson. I find it really hard to convince educators around me, though some results have started to show, to

  • really start thinking about what they are doing and why
  • what effect this type of teaching has on the kids
  • and finally to see alternatives that are right in front of them, not requiring any effort, 'just' change in how they view education and what it is for

I find it really problematic that in most countries - Hungary being no exception - the educational policies are not necessarily drawn up by educators, but rather politicians, who believe they know exaclty what children need. 


So all I can do is to make sure I spread my ideas about education at conferences, training courses, on facebook, twitter, and many other forums hoping that it will reach some people who can and will be willing to make this shift in the way they teach, or teaching happens in their institutions.
