Changing Education Paradigms

Why we learn what we learn and how we learn it shapes who were are years later. In this video Ken Roboinson creatively presents his critique of the current structure of public education.

The subject matter of this video is ever-so-serious but it is presented in a way that anyone will be able to appreciate if not agree with. Our economy requires a new way of thinking. Most of us have already begun to practice creative thinking in our daily lives (this includes work, family and social). However, in our education we are expected to comprehend a question and agree that there is only one right answer. Our future success depends on our ability to see not only multiple answers to one question/situation but also multiple ways of interpreting that question/situation.
