NOTE: Comments are disabled on this video. We made this difficult decision for the TED Archive because we believe that a well-moderated conversation allows for better commentary from more people and more viewpoints. Studies show that aggressive and hateful comments silence other commenters and drive them away; unfortunately, YouTube's comment moderation tools are simply not up to the task of allowing us to monitor comments on so many videos at once. (We'd love to see this change, YouTube.) So for now, if you'd like to comment on this talk, please use Facebook, Twitter or G+ to discuss with your networks.

Sir Ken Robinson - Revolutionizing Education from the Ground Up

Sir Ken Robinson - Revolutionizing Education from the Ground Up

National education systems worldwide are being reformed to meet the challenges of the 21st century. As a respected adviser to governments in Europe, Asia and the United States, Sir Ken Robinson argues in this powerful presentation that many countries are pushing reforms in the wrong direction and that the dominant culture of standardization and testing is stifling the very capabilities that our children, communities and economies need most. Drawing from his groundbreaking books, Out of Our Minds: Learning to Be Creative, and Creative Schools: The Grassroots Revolution That's Transforming Education, he explains why too many are locked into a model of education shaped by the Industrial Revolution and a narrow idea of academic ability. Urging schools and colleges everywhere to rethink their basic assumptions about intelligence and achievement, Sir Ken argues for radical changes in how we educate all students to meet the extraordinary challenges of living and working in the 21st century.
