A Personal Learning Revolution

by Anna Blanch on July 26, 2010

In this poignant, funny follow-up to his fabled 2006 talk, the talk I posted a couple of days ago, Sir Ken Robinson makes the case for a radical shift from standardized schools to personalized learning — creating conditions where kids’ natural talents can flourish.

How realistic are Robinson’s suggestions? How do we do this in a world where there is so much poverty? Are we merely reinforcing the difference between the elite educated and the rest of the world? Is that any reason to dumb down education? I want to say No, but i’m also aware of limited resources. Where to from here?
