Sir Ken Robinson: Bring on the learning revolution!

Sir Ken Robinson: Bring on the learning revolution! serves up his second appearance at TED in February, 2010. He continues with his beautiful combination of humour, performance and substance. Probably better than most anyone I’ve ever seen at taking one or two key ideas and weaving a narrative around them. These are not necessarily new ideas for most of us (people have unique gifts that are unrealized; industrial education needs to give way to more customized ways, etc.). But he offers them so elegantly that they are worth the time (19 minutes) to revisit.

  1. Great video. I love Sir Ken Robinson’s ideas, and he delivers them with quite a sense of humor… he’s funny!

    • Thanks, Kim! Did you see Sir Ken when he was in Saskatoon this year? He was great, and it was neat to see that he was trying out some of the stories that later appeared in this TED video. I feel like we got a sneak preview!🙂

  2. I agree that these were very worth the 19 minutes even if they are not particularly new. His words carry a weight to them that many others would not, even if they have been writing about these ideas for a while. I am a little bitter that I wasn’t able to see him when he came here (I suspect that was before my time with the GMCTE).

    • Yes, it was shortly before you came to the U of S, Brad, and he was terrific. Another thing I liked about it was that he performed in Convocation Hall. It all felt very… hmmm… collegiate.
