The future

I love this short clip. Last year we had a couple of short movies at a Board of Trustees meeting just to promote discussion about global trends in education and to see a different view of how education works. The first one was Sir Ken Robinson's fantastic speech at Ted, a leadership website. His speech was on creativity at school - a funny but extremely poignant speech that we can all identify with. Check this out at ted.com . The other one was this pearler of a powerpoint by Karl Fisch on the changing shape of the economic world and the impact on education and global relations.  Have a look and tell me what you think. This powerpoint shows how small New Zealand really is.
