    What do you think about the video?
    I think this video expand our knowledge about the difference between the traditional and current education system. Sr. Ken Robinson showed us an educational paradigm which has been used to educate people around the world. He said that public educational system is directed to achieve two important objectives.
    1. Contributes to the economy without thinking in the main characters which are students.
    2. Collaborate with the globalization, separating different cultures.
    Do you agree that education needs to change?? Why or why not???
    I agree with that because the education is the main engine to change the people, we can use the education to delete the problems that we have around the world. Also, it helps to innovate our ideas about the difficult situation of our society and changed it. Currently, the education guide us to break the different and unconscious paradigms that are injured the education.
    What similarities and differences can you find in the education system that the video describes and our education system??? Do we face the same Problems??
    1. We educated people by batches. It means that we separated people, depending their knowledge, age and aptitudes and we don´t join them in a collaborative education.
    2. The students cannot cheating, cannot talk without permission. Sometimes teachers don´t know that a collaborative work is more meaningful that an isolating work.
    1. We don´t pay attention that there are a lot of distractions in the students, we just want to teach them something but they cannot do it. We should help them to learn something new using the same distractors. For example. Nowadays, we use the technology to teach in an innovative way.
    2. Nowadays, education allows to put in practice and develop our creativity skill.
    How can we (teachers or future teachers) improve students’ critical thinking, creativity, and solving problem skills??
    We can help to develop the different and necessary skills in the students with an innovative way to teach. We can use useful methodologies and techniques to improve creativity. The students need that their point of view or their ideas are taken into account.

    I watched this earlier, and just now(offcourse since it is Easter so as many people as possible can read it), the local newspaper tries to normalize usage of drugs trough different stories of girl`s with adhd. Not once do they refer to publications or PhD`s. They only use facts about how many and the high expantion of people who use drugs for adhd from 2006-2016.

    It took me 17 years post-highschool to realize I was creative. It took me another 7 years to realize that Art was a worthy career path. I'm 42 and working on my BFA in sculpture. All of that time in school and no one noticed I was a creative.

    Makes an interesting point. But let's not forget, the public education system played a big role in what mankind has accomplished to date, in the realm of science, technology, medicine, engineering, etc. Inventors, entrepreneurs and business people learned the fundamentals through the public education system. So, it must not be overhauled entirely. I think what needs to be emphasized is functional education, or applied education-- putting things learned in the classroom together, showing how they can be used in real life situations.

    Hi there, does anyone know what the results were for the study shown in the book ¨Break Point and Beyond¨? When Sir Ken Robinson talks about measuring genius in 1500 people who were from kindergarten, at that age they scored 98%, what were the scores after, when children were 8-10 and 13-15? Anything is much appreciated.

    Adhd, and whether or not it exists, is not as he says “up for debate”. That component of this video took me out of what I would consider otherwise valid points. I agree with the systemic issues of the education system. But perhaps the point should have been to re-examine how the class is taught when a rising number of students needs are not being met by the method of instruction and assessment, rather than make any kind of statement about the validity of a very real and very difficult neurological disorder (one which often has co-morbid disorders such as ODD, dysgraphia, sensory integration disorder, and so on, which present challenges far beyond being bored and distracted). It was unnecessary and reckless to make such an uninformed and careless generalization about a disorder he does not clearly understand.

    But how do we bridge the gap between individualistic creativity and economic sustainability? Sure it would be great if we could all be creative as hell and love our jobs. But someone's gotta pick up the trash, someone has to take my order and bring me food back, someone has to direct traffic in construction zones . And I've worked many part time jobs and have hated it. But we all need to make money and someone has to do those jobs or we wouldn't live in the country like we so today. Yes it would be great if we can all live happy worthwhile lives. But I mean education and careers it's really just all models of human nature. We have leaders of the general mass and then general mass works works to improve living . Just because you provide the options doesn't mean someone will take control of their own lives. I agree we need to input new invigoration into public schools, but we can't all have amazing jobs economically can't work that way. And at least in America you have the opportunity to achieve whatever you want. And life is unfair some people will have to work alot harder and spend alot more of their own money. But we can't just let people study whatever they want in highschool because we need to have standards of success and create competition to produce the best work. So I don't know I wish we could all live these amazing lives but it doesn't work with how our country works today. It's just a fact that yes we value certain skills over others in our world. It doesn't mean they are less unique , but I would much rather pay someone more of my money to try and cure my cancer, then I would pay the person who painted those pictures in the waiting room at a hospital.

    "Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is not putting it in a Fruit Salad."
    We need both knowledge and wisdom to function in and sustain our society. The current method of education had been working and has also adapted to society since its inception. Most of the pioneers of industry have gone through this educational system and they have done well in the world. For this reason I believe that the problem is not with what we are taught; however, it is important to adapt the method we use to relay the information to learners, based on their own personal learning styles
    More importantly is the method we use to implement our knowledge (wisdom) This will help our world move beyond where we are currently at. So let us keep teaching the facts with individualized methods, but also skillfully teach the various methods that one can use to implement knowledge (wisdom).
    If a kid was never taught what a paperclip is or know at least its most basic function, there is no way he or she could come up any form of true divergent thinking, but will instead rely on untested conjecture. Sure, they might be lucky and get it right - but it will be pure chance. Sure, we could say 'Well done, you thought of 200 ways"! But how many of those ways will actually work. How many of those ways will benefit society.
    I agree with parts of what Sir Ken Robinson had to say, but not with everything. I have recently seen education standards being lowered to allow more people to pass. This is certainly not benefiting humanity in the future!

    "Collaboration"... And what about introverts ? When I am in a group (at school, at least, which isn't a good example, but I've got none other), I lose my focus because multiple people are often talking at the same time ("listening to someone" isn't a thing, apparently). When I am alone (I even often ask to work in a group of 2 instead of 3 or 4), or with another person (only ONE more person) I often finish my work before everyone else and get better results. I already got bad grades because of some disrespectful boy that kept talking over me.

    Certain math, like scientific math should be an elective, not mandatory. Most of the children in school do not want to be scientists. If they want to be scientists, inspire them to take science classes with science math or any other science. Don't expect everyone to be interested in something when they are not, you are wasting their time and they will not be able to think straight anymore. It is no wonder they misbehave.
    Now, this is most likely a separate issue but it might be connected in some way. Bullying, the school system might be a contributing factor. If the bully is mistreated at home and mistreated at school, what do you think is going to happen?

    OH MY GOODNESS, THANK YOU!!! That is exactly how I felt taking the stupid medication for ADHD. Believe it or not, I got over a big portion of ADHD by taking theatre. Something in my brain clicked into place. By the way, I was in high school at that time trying to figure out math (which is something that should be seen as an elective instead of mandatory.) They pretty much judged me "That class is going to be hard for you" I almost begged them on my knees to get me into theatre and choir. Reading notes was hard but singing them is a bit easier when you work a little at it.
    I believe art to be an essential part of life along with knowing how to pay bills, buying a house, what a mortgage is and what insurance it, how to get it and why you need it.

    To the RSA: Do the world a favour.... Please take this video down. This video contains dated and misleading information.
    Mr Robinson's beliefs about ADHD have been disproven. Cognitive neuroscience has shown that there are structural and functional differences between the brains of those with ADHD and those without. The REAL problem is that the diagnosis of ADHD needs to be made carefully, because, in practice, it's a diagnosis of exclusion. There are other mental health problems that can present like ADHD, such as anxiety disorders. Sometimes, gifted and talented students are misdiagnosed with ADHD, because those doing the diagnoses are not familiar with the personality features often associated with giftedness.

    Anybody who denies ADHD is real has never engaged with a child suffering from this disorder. Its as bad denying depression, Autism or any other mental problem or disability. A child with ADHD isnt just bored or acting out and to insinuate they are is an insult to kids who have this disorder. Its difficult enough working with an ADHD kid in a classroom for a couple of hours, I cant imagine whats it like for parents dealing with it 24/7. I agree that it can be over diagnosed in places like America but to deny its existence is pure ignorance. And some kids do need to be medicated because its so distressing for the child, they act out, pull classrooms apart, attack kids and teachers and hurt themselves. Ive also worked with giddy kids, bored kids, bratty kids and kids that wont pay attention and there is a huge difference between them and a child with ADHD.

    • Benjamin Benson
      Benjamin Benson 7 месяцев назад

      He is not denying it, he is saying it's over diagnosed. This is edited audio so I do not know if he makes that point clearer in the original or if he is focusing his claim on misdiagnosis because that's the controversial issue he wants to raise. I agree, it exists, but I also question with which students it exists in and which one's are being medicated as behavior control, and by behavior control, not the extreme cases like you have mentioned but mild cases, like, turning and talking to others in class for stimulation and blaming it on ADHD. I don't know what it is, I'm not taking a position as I am not educated in the field, but I appreciate raising the question.

    I suppose the reason school is separated by age is to provide the most equality of quality and experiences. If some students were able to maximize their learning while mediocre students hung out with equally mediocre students, that would create them another barrier to learning. Not that we don't already do that with the system of high school and college. And what ever does he mean by "standards"? Does he mean the standard of athletics, or the hundreds of millions dollars worth of infrastructure that is built to be "Harvard" replicas? The question is not in the end what our schools shall become -but whose agenda they fulfill. But in some sense I agree that an education has never been as crucial and necessary in an age where the sciences have made so much contributions to our health and longevity. Also, like he mentioned, if boredom is the problem -then kids need to learn how to entertain themselves that doesn't involve drinking, partying. In other words, if kids want the system to change, they have to be their own advocates and demand higher standards and opportunities to pursue their interests. Meet with the principal -what is he there for? Get parents involved. Anyway, after listening to this talk I can only surmise that he sympathizes with kids -their apathy toward growing up, their entitlement to a comfortable job and their impatience with waiting their whole young life to finally do something. Really when kids can talk and walk -they can do anything you can do, only better.

    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!

    I watched the first 5 minutes 10 times now. He reads way too fast for me, but I figured out that this is a very interesting subject anyway. So I`m prepared for another hour watching the next 5 minutes.

    This is why I'm going to become a teacher. It's going to be hard to implement some of the suggestions he is making in a messed up and cramped system, but I will try my best!
