    We as an education system need to change the way that we approach our students to help them all learn more. I really like this video.

    "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.

    I was an honor student in math and in the math club. When I went to 10th grade my teacher could not understand my formulas to get the answers and i went into failing because I could not do the proper steps. Because of this, I stressed in other subjects and ended up dropping out from being an honor student. I had family problems and thought education was my way out and the system destroyed me.

    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.

      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.

Yet they say our education is important and thats why the west is so "civilized" if its so important then why is education not a priority lolol stupid world. i bet our leaders wants us educated but not TOO educated

In other words I'm turning into a robot designed to take in information and spit it out on a standardized test so that my school can look good. I'm trying to fix this as a personal goal but honestly it's difficult

    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.

    yes we have a model of education based on education. This is highly problematic. It is a problem to have grades that measure if you are learning knowledge or not. But don't worry we have a solution! Let's stop education & replace it with "another model" aka no education & see if we can become slaves of globalist masters. This guy is brainwashing you! And you are truth-hating MORONS for believing him

    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 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".

    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?

    This is inspiring and everyone who watches this will take away something. Especially if you are or are planning to teach.

    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!

    Geweldig, precies wat ik altijd zeg. Ik heb hier heel veel last van, want ik pas niet in de standaards. Heerlijk om een medestander te vinden. Ga zo door. xxx

      I've watched this many times and I am always frustrated that the animator left out the percentages for the longitudinal paperclip study. Maybe @TheRSA can help?

    Ken/others... This is a powerful concept of teaching to the current generations of young learners. Let's take this scenario, that I've put on FB:
    Do you think this approach breaks away from tradition and makes education more valuable, productive, and outcome oriented than before? Is this what schools worldover are doing?
