This animate is a visual adaptation to a talk given at the RSA by Sir Ken Robinson, world-renowned education and creativity expert, and recipient of the RSA's Benjamin Franklin award. His speech, on Changing Paradigms of Education, puts some of New Zealand recent educational policy in a global context, (not is a positive way). It is very interesting and the amazing animation makes it a very easy watch. His message really resonates amongst the challenges facing schools today. It is 11 minutes along so hang in there and sadly his full conclusion is not included, but you will get the idea to his message. Watch out for the amazing bit on ADHD / Ritolin around the 3.30 mark.
