Ken Robinson: How to change education – from the ground up
Ken Robinson gives a long-awaited follow-up talk on education at the RSA.
Ken Robinson talks about how he thinks it is important to recognize and focus on the people who are involved in education: the teacher and the learner. He claims that it is not enough for teachers just to know their subjects, they need to be able to engage the students, drive their passion, encourage them to want to learn. The learner, he says, is born with a great appetite for learning and is a living organism. If you, the teacher, are in that learning relationship, you have everything in your hands to be able to change things, from the ground up.
