Hi everyone! This is my first blog post on my education blog for EDCI336. I am sharing with you a video we watched in our Multiliteracies course yesterday. “Changing Education Paradigms” is a Ted Talk given by Sir Ken Robinson. He describes our outdated school system, and links it do a dwindling interest in the arts, and an increase in treated ADHD, all to a live illustration. Very cool!
It was both fascinating and also a little scary to watch this and reflect on how outdated our school system is. I almost feel as if I was brainwashed when I was going through high school. Study, write test, forget everything, repeat. Studying education while the new curriculum is being implemented is exciting and daunting at the same time. I need to find ways to break away from the old traditional model of teaching and put more focus on educating students to be critical thinkers. Challenge accepted!
