Educating Students in the 21st Century

 

We would love to hear what YOU think!

For over 250 years the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) has been a cradle of enlightenment thinking and a force for social progress. 

From their website:

Our approach is multi-disciplinary, politically independent and combines cutting edge research and policy development with practical action. 

– We encourage public discourse and critical debate by providing platforms for leading experts to share new ideas on contemporary issues, through our public events programme, RSA Journal and RSA Comment.

Our projects generate new models for tackling the social challenges of today.

– Our work is supported by a 27,000 strong Fellowship – achievers and influencers from every field with a real commitment to progressive social change. 

– Our House, the historic home of the RSA, is an environmentally-friendly and flexible space that can cater for a variety of events.

 
In a RSA Animation of a presentation (video below) creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson asks how do we make change happen in education and how do we make it last?

Sir Ken Robinson, PhD is an internationally recognized leader in the development of creativity, innovation and human resources. He has worked with governments in Europe, Asia and the USA, with international agencies, Fortune 500 companies, and some of the world’s leading cultural organizations. He speaks to audiences throughout the world on the creative challenges facing business and education in the new global economies.

His new book, a New York Times Best Seller, ‘The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything’ (Penguin/Viking 2009) is being translated into sixteen languages.

Sir Ken was born in Liverpool, England as one of seven children. He is married to Therese (Lady) Robinson. They have two children, James and Kate, and live in Los Angeles, California.

Watch the animation of the presentation at least twice…I found that my learning style preference as a visual learner focused on the animation in my first viewing and I could listen more effectively with a second viewing. In any event…we would love to hear what YOU think!
