Changing Educational Paradigms – Ken Robinson
June 15, 2011 6 Comments
Missy showed me this video yesterday and I thought it was powerful in helping us recognize some of the limitations of how we have educated in the past and how we might improve the way we engage people with information and utilize their creativity to help them grow. While I have just a couple of reservations on his broad brushing of ADD/ADHD he makes some excellent points that can really change the way we think about how we are educating people today. It really fell right in line with some of the thoughts I shared in the last post on raising up people who are able to teach. Do you agree? What impact would this have on Christian education and the methods we use to train people and teach the Bible?
I also noticed that he has a few books on this subject that may be worth looking into:
Out of Our Minds: Learning to Be Creative
The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything
