"Industrial processes are linear… but education is not"
Key points from Sir Ken Robinson:
the purposes of education are: 1. economic – but not the same as during the industrial revolution and the origins of public education 2. cultural – to pass on cultural genes; but this has to be global 3. personal – the most important, the most forgotten aspect.
"revolutions never come from the top"
principles to observe: 1. make education personal 2. customize education to individual communities 3. curriculum: from subjects to disciplines (focus on skills and processes) 4. knowledge: from static to dynamic 5. education: from solitary to collaborative, passive to active (think drama!) 6. assessment: from judgment to description
