Now our education system is predicated on the idea of academic ability. People put several subjects such as math and science, in higher level than others. Those three videos related to my topic. In the first video, Ken Robinson explain how teacher can be so focusing on students grade on math, and sometimes it makes teachers and parents don't really know about another skill that the students may have. I agree that sometimes, in several occasions, school can kill creativity. Not every children wants to be a university professor. That way, school really pressure student to learn something that they don't or they make student to become someone that they don't plan to become. Also in the second video, Ken Robinson explain to us that we need a revolution on learning. Parents and teachers should be more aware and pay attention on students' passion because often, people are good at things they don't really care for. They should aware about passion, and what excites their spirit and energy. I believe that if students are doing the thing that they love to do, that they're good at, time takes a different course entirely.
I only had a moment to watch some of the first video, but Mr. Robinson is very funning and insightful.
Yeah I also love those videos. I'm curious about how you homeschool your children, Anya. I'd love to know if you want to share it :)
These are my favorite videos. I agree with Ken Robinson at all points.
That's why I homeschool my five children))
