RSA Animate - Changing Education Paradigms

"This animate was adapted from a talk given at the RSA by Sir Ken Robinson, world-renowned education and creativity expert and recipient of the RSA's Benjamin Franklin award.
For more information on Sir Ken's work visit: http://www.sirkenrobinson.com"

I found the message of this video to be very resonating.

I love listening to Sir Ken Robinson! That animate is great, but this is another talk (with many of the same ideas) that really got me thinking the first time I saw it (and I've rewatched it several times this past year):

Enjoy!

There is so much truth in this! It's because of this that the author of Montessori Madness enrolled his children in a Montessori school. I saw him speak at a local venue last Thursday, bought the book, and I'm nearly finished with it.

I'd only learned of Montessori last summer from a comment under the RSA Animate. Someone said that they feel for the rest of us, but they couldn't really sympathize because they went to a Montessori school. That struck a research frenzy in me, because my husband and I were discussing homeschooling our future children. Then, by luck, I learned of this book by listening to NPR during a 10 minute drive to an appointment. This is a book written, not by an educator, but by a parent who is seeing results in his children.

I've had some really good teachers growing up, and they've made a wonderful difference in my life, but that doesn't erase the hours of years I spent with my brain on autopilot. Those wonderful teachers of mine might have really thrived on a personal level, might have felt even more fulfilled in their careers, if they had heard of the Montessori method. I know several education majors, and I'm kinda sad that they haven't heard of this during their studies.

At some point, I would like to read the works written by Maria Montessori herself. Trevor Eissler described it as a somewhat dry read for the general public, but having gone through the education machine, I think I can handle it.
