Where are our children headed?
As Sir Ken Robinson, author and renowned speaker about educational reform and the place of creativity in schools and society, puts it:
“How do we educate our children to take their place in the economies of the 21st century?”
His answer, and his explanation of where we need to be headed when thinking about how to prepare our children for the future, delivers an important message to parents, caregivers, teachers, and anyone who has an active role in the education and raising of our children. If you have 11 minutes and 41 seconds to spare (I know! Seriously not always easy!) I highly recommend watching this entertaining and informative RSA Animate. If you haven’t seen an “RSA Animate” movie before…they are pretty cool. Worth it for the drawing feature alone, in my opinion. 🙂 Check it out…and share any thoughts you have after seeing it!
