Making Change Happen in Education

Currently making the rounds on Facebook is a Youtube video by RSA Animate, Changing Education Paradigms. This eleven-minute long video is a taken from a much longer speech given by Sir Ken Robinson. I had not previously seen any RSA Animate videos and want to learn a little more about them. This one is very creative and thought provoking. I want to watch this one a few more times before I make any comments on it, but thought I would share it with the LeapingFromTheBox.com readers and see what they think of it!

I also want to take the time to listen to the whole 55-minute RSA Edge Lecture by Sir Ken Robinson, Changing Paradigms, that this RSA Animate is taken from. I will be posting more about this tomorrow. In the meantime, let me know what you think!

  • This video is fascinating. Do you have a link to the original speech?

    I shared this with some friends who said they found the visual aspect distracting. I. on the other hand, really got more out of the speech with the visuals. I wonder that says about difference in learning styles? 🙂

  • I really liked the visual aspect when he was writing the words. The pictures, I’d begin to quit listening and wonder what he was drawing! I’m just such a word person. If you click on the link under the Animate, it will take you to a video of the whole speech, which is not animated. 🙂

  • That was so very interesting! I’d really like to hear more about what he has to say, but I’d need the visual to keep track!

    Thanks for this website. I’m going to spend some time browsing around. I’ve reached a low point of exasperation and no energy with homeschooling my kids, a mix of learning disabilities, special needs and “average” strugglers. I need some inspiration!
