Divergent Thinking

With the occasion of the University of Cambridge planning to raise the tuition fees to home/EU students to £9K/year, and the increasingly flawed, purely economics-based view of education, here’s another one of the RSAnimate sketches, based on a lecture by (Sir) Ken Robinson.

    It’s an excellent presentation. These RSA sketches are fantastic and much more comprehensive than the speech alone.

    I showed this to a friend of mine who teaches in 2nd grade education. He was stunned by it. Ken Robinson has absolutely right when he says that our public education model is “industrialized” which kills creativity and treats students as ‘products’.
