/ Ken Robinson on Desert Island Disks - Radio 4
My quote of the year from him:
"Don't resent getting older, its a privilege denied to so many'
Really stopped me in my tracks as I was just thinking about the inverse relationship between my hairline and short term memory.
And it is always worth any excuse to post links to these two videos, even though I have probably posted them before.
From what I've seen of Ken Robinson (TED Talks, interviews and pieces in the TES) he is very eloquent when pointing out the problems in education but less adept at offering solutions.
Eloquent critics fulfil a useful role but are likely to disappoint if given power.
Thanks Alan just watched Changing Education Paradigms which is excellent, love the animation as well.
Just watched Ken Robinson "How schools kill creativity" which is also excellent. I agree make him Secretary for Education now.
Yes, his music choice was terrible, apart from the Joan Armatrading track.
Brilliant. Though as a teacher I'm not sure whether to be totally inspired or profoundly depressed.
