    But what is the answer? Make questions have more than one answer, and force kids to list tonnes of them? That would just make things much harder. I am doing grade 9 math right now, and it's hard enough to remember the main way of solving a problem (let alone remember several ways of solving a problem). I think it would just make things worse if they made us remember multiple methods of solving. I think most of the stuff that they teach is just useless. When will I ever need to use polynomials? I asked my teacher that question, and she said: "You will never use them outside of math class." That should sure say something about the current school system. Maybe if they cut out the fat, and only taught us the important stuff that we will have to use later in life, and let us pursue more complicated subjects only if we chose to do so, maybe we would have time for things like "collaboration" and "diverse thinking." Another thing: when a problem comes up (like drugs or alcohol) the teachers, and everyone else involved in the education of kids just looks at it as the enemy and will try to eradicate it. Drugs and alcohol may be the enemy, but kids want what they can't have. If they will attack a problem like that by repeatedly saying how bad it is, kids will get used to hearing it, and the words will mean nothing to them. If I told someone "drugs will kill you" every day, they will eventually start to question whether what I am saying is true of not, and will just ignore what I tell them. In the end, I think that the more I see things like this happen in life, the more it reminds me that we live in a ruined society. It's only a matter of time before we all die of pollution anyways, so what's the point of even trying to reform the school.

    Schools are organized on factory lines

    How true that sentence is, I don’t know about you but have you seen Pink Floyd's “The Wall” Movie? In the middle, it illustrates how the school system just cares about grades, the subject not the student. You see the kids sitting at their desks in a factory line, being dumped into a meat processor. “All in all you’re just another brick in the wall” The government doesn’t care about you. It doesn’t care about me or my family our yours. And if you think they do you are a blind fool. You are a number in the system, they want to feed you on bull crap in a line, over and over and then send you on your way to get your hopes and dreams crushed, relying on the false promises that education can get you anywhere, can supply endless amounts of money and happiness.

    This makes me feel like crying, because I always felt like having to anaesthetise myself to fit into our educational system. In fact I did, and still do to a certain degree. And yet I haven't quite succeeded: this stupid, childish, creative part of me hasn't died in all those years, it's still rebellious, only I have gotten tired over the years. Tired of asking questions noone has the time to answer, tired of being the one who keeps teachers from teaching us the hows without considering the whys. I shall stop right here, sorry. I'm just so upset right now!

    The subject you talked about where kids lose the ability to "think outside the box" is interesting because I love studying Math and number theories. And there is an number theory that say that when we are children we think of things in linear aspects, ie 1-2-3-4-5, but right before we are sent into the education system (about 3 years old) we start to group things, ie 3-9-12-16. But after being sent to school, we lose that instict to group things in 3s because we are force taught that linear counting is the right way. Of course, if you think about math as a subject linear thinking is good but our human instinct tells us to group things because if you are being chased by 3 bears vs being chased by 9 bears, its obvious which is worse. But when you count the bears linearly, there could be 10 bears or there could be 11 bears, but you're still going to run for your life instead of counting to see which is worse.
    Anyways, I think this would tie in with that in some way. Because we are taught to think in linear aspects in school we lose the ability to think "outside the box" and thus why being consider a "genius" becomes more rare as we get older.

    I'm freshman under 'Seoul Women's University' in South Korea, and our English class (proposed for upgrading listening&speaking ability.... kind of obligation of our school for freshmen) ranged over this video. Students learned about Education more elaborately.... and it made girls to think about fundamental function of education. Almost none hesitated to participate and express opinion. I also saw Korean TV show few days ago.... it was a debate of two author based on a book written by Sir Ken Robinson.. it's really surprising nothing seems changed in education field, although World is changing drastically day by day....  maybe it's not only limited situation to Korea. how can we change paradigms and make come true our town, city, nation, word better for students to learn what they need and want? it is obvious adults need to search some better way...

    Este video habla de cómo las sociedades están evolucionando sus sistemas educativos, pero el problema es que lo quieren hacer repitiendo procesos del pasado. Se menciona también la necesidad de un cambio real que rompa con paradigmas obsoletos de la era de la revolución industrial y la idea de "estandarización" y pruebas objetivas. Aquí en México, eso lo relacionamos con la expresión coloquial de "la letra con sangre entra". Es ahí donde se empata de manera perfecta mi Plan de mejora, al proponer el uso del portafolio electrónico como instrumento cualitativo/auténtico de evaluación de los aprendizajes, como parte de esta actualización, este repensamiento de la educación formal y los procesos que conlleva.

    Wow, I was just shocked when I realized I never questioned the rationality behind classes based on age. Just think about it, it makes 0 sense. WHY do we do that! it should not be made so hard to jump classes, and failing shouldn't be made a huge deal. Here I was breaking my head over the fact that a class has people who learn at different rate, how am I going to teach all of them effectively. I never for a moment thought of not arranging them by age!

    Ringing bells, separate toilets based on gender, those are fine. Even different subjects are cool, you need to break down the problem of teaching into subproblems, we can classify the curriculum differently but I think we would still be grouping students on some basis.

    I am so sure I'll read this comment in the future and feel like I was overreacting by far.

    Coming to the video's topic at large, I have to say its possible but too costly to implement. Imagine framing a education system where each child's uniqueness is allowed to be expressed. Wow, thats worth trying hard to achieve. But for now we try to group the children into broad groups. We should respect the Arts as much as the Sciences, but currently due to how only a few artists can make money (value) this respect is less. Before they couldn't replicate the work of artists so easily.

    Yes there is a single answer for math problems at the back, but there are SO many ways of reaching that one answer. Other subjects like history, politics should be discussed, encourage the children to think of their own reasoning. I really do believe that even without a great shift in the paradigm (not to say that isn't needed) with great teachers at every level in the kids lives we can make a really big difference.

    What about the unseen future? what if we complete known physics by adding space torque and create unified physics? What if all new systems in the future are based on the the understanding of the vector equilibrium. Then what happens to all the man made social systems we have created? Even the educational system is biased to this type of change or thinking.

    Lots of time ago, on the italian version of Scientific American, I red a study about an "invariant" of our brains: the sum of the products of the number of synapses by the area of each synapse is almost a constant, for all neurons.

    So, children are born with lots small synapses, which then are "selectively reinforced" (*),
    so that an adult has less synapses, but with a larger area each.

    Noticeably, elder people and people with mental disease have even less, even larger synapses.

    I think this explain the results of the "genius test" for "divergent thinking".

    (*) Physically, is like muscles grow or get reduced: by exercise (lots of signal passing there will grow the area to allow for more "capacity"). Mathematically, it's the way neural networks adjust: positive or negative feedback adjusts the thresholds/weights.

    Powerful video that all educators should watch. Honestly I never considered the "why" behind education. I agree with SKR , something needs to change to better engage and maintain students. The resources available to educators and children now are abundant and plentiful and should be used and not taken away. I would add that the change needs to start from the top down however, educators need to "buy in".

  • Adam Ovard

    I wish the change in education started sooner. I do not like how it is here in the USA. I wish we could also move towards trades more in high school. That way most people would have jobs right out of High School. I feel that High School should be a trade school in which one can tack his time to become a master at what ever filled they are going into. How gives a crap about a High School diploma. Trades and skills are way better. What do you think?

    Brilliant! Just amazing how we have been so conditioned to age old theories/practices. We were NOT all created the same - for a very good reason I would suggest! Therefore just because a child does not conform to a particular view of the mind does not mean that child will not and cannot make a brilliant contribution to life. Standardisation just has to go! Thank you SO much for this thought provoking, challenging  video!

I could not survive without my meds, and I ultimately feel like I can function more rather than less, and I can process more information not less, and I enjoy learning more not less, with my meds than without them.

    I was diagnosed with ADHD and was given all the drugs, thank you modern education for that, so I feel that I am qualified to say that THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ADD/ADHD. I have a different way of thinking than other people or they are different from me, take your pick. Point is when you call something a "disorder" then its a problem that needs fixing. And how do we fix things?? DRUGS! Of course, because God forbid that teachers actually do their jobs and identify the learning needs of children. If you have a child, and you are being told that he/she, more likely the former, has ADD and needs meds, PLEASE don't, please, they will never learn to live with their own mind and will only become drug dependent, don't force them to think the way other people say they should. There are alternatives, martial arts, dance, horse riding, dog training, calligraphy. Hobbies such as these will help your child discipline their own mind. Please don't force some drug on your kids, Ritalin/Adderall, whatever the name, they make you feel like someone else not yourself.  Look at the alternatives, for their sake.

      +Aron Lazarus Well everyone has a slightly different brain structure. Because we are all unique we all have different ways of thinking and dealing with stress, or solving problems. "ADHD" is a clever lie created by people who cannot tolerate things that are different from the norm. Taking a group of people with a slightly different thought process and saying that they have a disorder is a total lie. There is nothing wrong with me nor anyone that was diagnosed with this fake illness. The truth is, that teachers who couldn't deal with children who have high levels of energy needed an excuse to explain their own ineptitude. The medical community obliged. They would rather use chemicals to alter the brain of a child than to actually do their jobs and help them grow into adults. There is no "disorder" that makes you loose focus or give you more energy. People are just different, and each person has to take ownership for who and what they are, and learn how best to integrate into society.

      john t it's recognised by the entire medical profession. And just this week, studies found that people with ADHD have different brain structure. The fact that some people may be misdiagnosed does not mean that it doesn't exist.

      +Aron Lazarus Recognized by whom? And I was not misdiagnosed, it was confirmed multiple times, by the text book definition I am ADHD, but I can make stuff up and write it all in a book too... so what? The definition is so relative so subjective, anyone can be said to have it. It's one thing when lab results confirm that a person has a chemical imbalance, another when some quack says "your boy is TOO active".

    Epidemic: The Misdiagnosis of ADHD

    "The problem, in the ADHD world and others—particularly psychiatric—is that the companies hijacked the entire field. It corralled all the top researchers and doctors in the field and paid them five, six, even seven-figures apiece to conduct studies all written in the same key: ADHD is more widespread and dangerous than anyone knows, the drugs work wonderfully and with almost no side effects, and that if you don't diagnose and medicate a child, he or she will be doomed to academic and social failure, crash their car, get venereal disease and more."

    I think a lot of people want to have the label of ADHD so they can have some sort security blanket covering up their lack of discipline. It is a real problem, but it is not as common as you think it is. It's like your average edgy teen self-diagnosing themselves with depression when in reality they just have bad social skills and none of the other symptoms of depression. That's not to say teens don't have it, but this whole "I NEED a label" trend isn't helping those who actually have problems.

  • Narwolf

    "We shouldn't be putting them to sleep, we should be waking them up." Um, RITALIN IS A STIMULANT. It's like, literally, the exact opposite of an anesthetic. Did he actually research these drugs? So, here's the deal. We are actually stimulation deprived, which means our hyperactivity is not the effect of excess energy, but rather a manifestation of our desperation to get adequate mental stimulation. That's why we seek thrills, entertainment, sugar, and attention, even more so than neurotypical people. They give us what we naturally lack. We can't focus on anything less than interesting because we're basically constantly starving. What a stimulant does for us is it fills that gap. It satisfies us so we can direct our attention to the more mundane tasks.

  • Narwolf
    Narwolf 8 месяцев назад

    Maybe ADHD is "growing" not because the world is changing, but because we're finally beginning to understand what it is. Especially in the past decade since we've started realizing that it's a lot more than just hyperactivity and distractibility. I didn't particularly look or act like a typical ADHD kid, so I wasn't diagnosed until adulthood.

    Firstly, this was a very cool teaching method! The combination of the illustrated drawing piece combined with the skilled orator on a very current subject, Bravo. I found myself overly engaged in the speech. Now to touch upon the content within the speech. The part which had me thinking greatly after was the section on medicating children for the apparent disorder of ADHD. I knew that ADHD was popular but never was it until I came to college that I found such a high number of people surrounding me who had long been prescribed various medications for this said disease. It truly took me back especially on the factor that my father a pharmacist who profits off this highly questionable industry longed preached to my family and I on his unwary feeling he had on the High amount of Adderal being prescribed to the youth.

    Stop watching when he started describing stimulants as anaesthetics. The problem with people adhd isn't that they're "too alive" and need to be anaesthetised, it's quite the opposite. Adhd is a chronic lack of dopamine, meaning the only effective way of treating adhd is by increasing the available dopamine and/or inhibiting the re-uptake of dopamine so that it stays in the brain longer. You're not anaesthetising people when you give them ritalin, you are stimulating them.

      the stimulation from increased dopamine causes those with adhd to act calmer or anaesthetised because they are no longer seeking distractions that give them dopamine spikes.

      Adolf Goldstein Shekelblatt fair enough.

      I'm just finding it hard to get my head around the fact that you are incredibly knowledgeable and articulate when it comes to ADHD and yet, completely backward in the way you behave and talk about Jews.

      I don't much care. The meme reference jewish supremacists who want to destroy Western civilization. If any Loxists are offended by it the that's fine with me.

    The education system was developed by the bankers to feed us information to make us cogs in the wheel to perpetuate evil systems that bring money and power to the few. We are given information (no more or less than what) they want us to have, so that we can do as told to in our profession or job.We are taught to regurgitate that information on tests to pass, and thus get a degree qualifying us to get a well-paying job. The books are chosen for us by the establishment, and try challenging the professors with even realistic and logical contesting ideas, and you are failed. My idea of proper way to challenge children, to stimulate them, to help them learn to think, analyze, scrutinize, and develop cognitive abilities; is to have a different means of learning. Perhaps a teacher should do some research on a given subject, find some verified facts, and have a roundtable discussion of implications, solutions, reasons, etc.. children who think and use their heads can help the others find ways to understand, mutual cooperation, and those who have fun ridiculing and joking can be called on rarely, while the slow ones can learn methods of analyzation, as taught in a fitting manner. There is something to be said for learning to think on your own, including research abilities. This is science- the search for ultimate truth, sometimes outside of past "discoveries" and outside the boxes of thinking that have been imposed on us. Our mindsets and worldviews have been created by the media and education system, and these have been designed to impose faulty concepts, actually evil ones, by those who place ultimate value on wealth and power for themselves, and teach us to desire same.

    This helped consolidate many of my "floating" ideas on education, as well as shine light on valuable new information. Thank you. I really appreciated the animation as well.

    These are the main reasons I quit the education system. I tend to work best if I explore concepts and ideas on my own terms and at my own pace rather than being spoon fed by a college professor in a boring monotonous manner.

    I agree with the premise of divergent thinking, but if not for standardized testing, how can we ensure our nation's children are developing the skills and knowledge they need to safeguard America's future?

      Standardized testing doesn't test intellectual ability (I could also argue an IQ test doesn't either). They test your ability to memorize and retain the boring information being fed to you by the education system.
