Already a fan of Sir Ken Robinson‘s work, I came across an inspiring video on Edutopia‘s website. Entitled Creatively Speaking, this lecture was recorded at the Apple Education Leadership Summit in April, 2008. In this lecture, Mr. Robinson discusses the need for curriculum reform that recognizes the changing dynamics of our global economy. He argues that our current education model is based on an industrial-age economy. In the Information Age, we need to tap into children’s creative and problem-solving qualities in order to prepare a generation of students who can think on their feet and adapt to an ever-changing work force. The video and an accompanying article can be found on this Edutopia link. (I couldn’t get the video to embed here.)
