Jerry Michalski, REX: Make me twelve again
There are no teaching - only learning! In a magic talk on the need for Rebuilding Education Jerry Michalsky touch upon the hidden curriculum of schools and shows why many kids probably would be better off never entering a school in the first place.
But he goes on to discuss the principles on with to build schools of the future. Sir Ken Robinson could not make it to the Rebuild21 conference this year so Jerry took the keynote on Education and we are not sorry! Best talk we have seen for years!
The official global educational system is pretty good at delivering what it was designed to deliver: factory workers and consumers. Other important things it doesn't do quite as well. Many people are trying to reform it from the inside, as well as reshape or replace it from the outside. Which efforts are worth watching? How should we frame these efforts in order to see more clearly where we are headed?
