Sir Ken Robinson is well-known professor who speak lot’s of school systems. All his Ted speech is founded here: http://www.ted.com/speakers/sir_ken_robinson
The presentation in Nordic Business Forum is fun and encouraging. I have been honour to studied school in Finland, which is pioneer of education. This is one reason why I doesn’t get so much taught from this presentation, but I try to give something new thinking and opinions.
What is the biggest change of human history?
There is more people living earth than ever. Now we have about seven billions.
They are calculated that if we use earth resources like average USA consumption, the resources of earth can maintain 1,5 billion people. That means that we consumer lot more.
Second big think to understand is how we have access to knowledge. Todays all information is on our pocket and trough our cellphone we can reach knowledge all over the world. We don’t have to go libraries anymore to find out thinks.
History has showed that nothing stays still very long. Our brain is not sufficient to imagine what kind of useful and not useful thinks people invent in the future. It’s part of human nature that it’s invent new and it can’t be stopped.
What kind of place future school should be?
Because of easy access to information, future schools can be place we people try to learn memory thinks. Future schools should be environment which encourages people to use their creativity and skills to learning by doing. The method of studying is mostly the need based learning.
Every generation have to invent democracy
This sentence means that generations have to invent their own thinks. It’s part of their independency process. It’s also mean that trough the time of history, every democracy has been dislodged from the people. Then people have find out new ways to build up democracy again. Social Media is great example how people fight back if the coverment try to control them. People have organise virtual protest agains bad decisions. When government try to control internet, hackers have build their own internet -network.
Inventing democracy means that generations find out their own ways to keep up democracy in the world
Creative and different thinking
1. We are living time of revolutions
2. To beat revolution, we have to think differently
3. We have to dare to do thinks differently
“Technology unleash new creativity”
Creativity is butting you imagination on work. You create your own life, because every people is unique and life is organic, like self-learning process, not linear.
What toxicated you?
See potential of people. Courache them to find it and believe it. Find out your own potential. You must remember to train to bring up your talent.
We live world of ideas, values and feelings
Create environment were people can flourish. Creative culture is were everyone can have ideas
Imagine -> Creativity -> Innovation
