World-renowned educationalist Sir Ken Robinson delivers the long-awaited follow-up to his now legendary "Changing Education Paradigms" talk. He addresses the fundamental economic, cultural, social and personal purposes of education, and argues that education should be personalised to every student's talent, passion, and learning styles -- and that creativity should be embedded in the culture of every single school.
Teaching is an art form says Robinson, and it occurs at the point of connection between the teacher and the student. Its not enough to know your stuff, more than that, you need to excite people about the material. The gift of a great teacher to make people want to learn, argues Robinson.
