RSA Animate - Changing Education Paradigms
Good points:
- Schools use way too many outdated metaphors from the early days of industrialization.
- Segmenting students by age is a ridiculous idea, there are dozens of much more sensible criteria (This problem is much worse in Austria than in the US!)
- Kids today live in media-rich environments with lots of things vying for their attention. Educational style, presentation and content hasn't kept up, and kids are finding it hard to concentrate. What's our solution? Why, just drug these kids with Ritalin so they sit still while we give them the same old boring lectures...!
