I love this video. Great post!
This article today on the BBC Education page
asks the question ‘what has happened since’ Ken Robinson’s report, All Our Futures, was published. It seems that, just like in schools, other things can get in the way.
After reading Thomas Friedman’s book, The World is Flat, and what he and his friends have to say about the education that is needed for the world that our children will inherit, I am more convinced that it is the interconnectedness of disciplines that we need to be developing with our students. Mirroring what Sir Ken had to say back then.
Completely agree Matthew. Thanks for the comment.
