alternative education? no, that’s called good education.

The principles of alternative education that Sir Ken Robinson mentions are really at the heart of all good education. When people argue about systemic change to education, I wonder if we shouldn’t start smaller and look to change every classroom to be more in line with these very simple-sounding but difficult-to-realize principles.

[For those that work with me, these principles should sound very familiar — and this is incredibly heartening and inspiring heading into the new year. The challenge is in living it on top of saying it.]

I’ve skipped straight to the last three minutes, but Robinson’s whole talk, the outro to TEDxLondon, is definitely worth watching (as are the rest of the TEDxLondon talks).
