Re-imagining Education: Visions for the Future

I enjoy TED talks, especially those on education. Here is a playlist of a dozen interesting talks on the nature of schooling and how it could be done better. You’ll hear Dr. Ken Robinson’s classic talk on how institutional schools kill creativity, and from Sugata Mitra about a fascinating experiment he did in which inner city children in India taught themselves how to use a computer and other complex concepts. Enjoy!

I don’t agree with every point or speaker, but there are many ideas here that are well worth considering, as well a few that are real stinkers. Which video is your favorite, and why?

In case you are intrigued by one of the talks, here are a few resources I found by some of these speakers:
