RSA Animate: Changing Educational Paradigms

The RSA or Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce is a fascinating organization based in Britain. It brings thinkers and speakers from all over the world to attempt to seek solutions for today's challenges. The talk above, given by Sir Ken Robinson, is wonderful. One of the things I love about the RSA Animate talks is that they're illustrated - and who doesn't love a good illustrated story? This talk on educational models tackles a lot in eleven minutes and is well worth listening to. Not only does Robinson address the outdated structure of our schools, he also talks about ADHD, divergent thinking, and the best environments for learning. I hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think about this talk and if you would be interested in seeing more like it!

Happy reading!
