Sir Ken Robinson: Changing Educational Paradigms

After a brief break, it is time for summer school. I am teaching two sections of English at Ventura College, one from 10:30-1:20 and the second from 1:30-4:20.

We’re starting out thinking about education, about learning and literacy. We’ll be discussing Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave” and Seth Godin’s “Stop Stealing Dreams.”

And I’ll probably show this video on changing educational paradigms by Sir Ken Robinson.

I loves how he describes one  of my favorite topics in pedagogy: aesthetic and anaesthetic education–learning that enlivens versus learning that deadens.
