RSA Animate – Changing Education Paradigms

Last year, Sir Ken Robinson was awarded the Benjamin Franklin Medal by the Royal Society of Arts in London. Accepting the award, he gave a talk on Changing Paradigms in Education.  The RSA has produced a animated version of highlights of the talk.

This is a video I had heard about on Twitter and on the Ed Tech Crew podcast. When I finally put aside 12 minutes to watch it I thought it was definitely worth sharing for two reasons.

1. The ideas that Sir Ken express in the talk about change in education are very much food for thought.

2. The actual animation in itself is very interesting. Perhaps this is a style of animation that students could work on. It would be a terrific way to express creativity and could be used to animate any sort of speech, explanation, debate etc.

    Hi Kathleen

    Sir Ken certainly does give you plenty to think about. It made me think about what I do in the classroom.

    I found the animation work exceptional. It held my attention and created really engaging images to follow and review. So much better than a PowerPoint!!

    Thank you for making this available.

    Keep up the excellent work.

    1. @ Jeff, so nice to hear from an LPS Colleague!

      It really is food for thought isn’t it and I agree, it does make you think about what you do in the classroom.

      I just ♥ that animation! How clever – it must have taken them an incredible amount of time to make.

      Hope to hear from you again, Jeff! 🙂
