TED talks and other food for thought

Published 04/01/2016 by Adam Beard

There are some interesting debates, thoughts and initiatives going on around how education should evolve.

The following links raise many interesting points that are salient to the discussion.

The first is a quick fire, animated, Sir Ken Robinson talk (and is worth watching for the nature of the presentation alone; we love it).

The second is a longer more in-depth talk around the same theme.

The last, by Salman Khan of the Khan Academy, provides some interesting insights into how technology is helping to engage students and how seemingly ‘impersonal’ tuition is delivering results.
