RSA Animate – Changing Education Paradigms

This amazing video was adapted from a talk given at the RSA by Sir Ken Robinson, who is world-renowned education and creativity expert and the recipient of the RSA’s Benjamin Franklin award.  The RSA is an organization dedicated to thinking in new ways about things like social progress and human fulfillment.  You can find out more about the RSA here.

Their are a number of wonderful things that they do, which you can read more about on their website, but one of the coolest things that they produce are the RSA Animate videos, that cover a range of topics in the forms of whiteboard illustrations.  You can look through all their RSA Animate videos here.

The recent video that caught my eye is the one mentioned above.  Sir Ken Robinson talks about the institution of education, the increasing medication of children for ADHD (and percieved ADHD), and the loss of creativity that is resulting from the educational system.  This video is a MUST WATCH for anyone interested in education and modern day educational systems.
