Sir Ken: How to Escape Education’s Death Valley

I am posting this because I was reminded of the clarity of Sir Ken’s message last night when I sat up and watched a live stream from the Blue School in America – an innovative and creative team of educators whose approach attends to the individual needs of learners. If you get a chance to have a look at the Blue Men (founders of the school in 2006) perform then please do.

This TED talk also discusses the individuality of the child but goes further in that it challenges the ‘system’ and the school managers to adopt a personalised approach to how they manage individual and local  learning environments. I aspire to be able to teach in such a way.
