Another Sir Ken vid – still used

Although this was recorded in 2010, I still use this video when presenting to parents about contemporary learning.  The section from 1:46 to 3:35 is spot on.   It normally leads into a conversation about the sort of education parents were exposed to,each one filled with content which was then regurgitated weekly, termly or each Semester through a variety of tests or exams, with the prize going to the child who could regurgitate the most information.  Clearly, with the arrival of the internet, this system had to change.

Ten/twenty years on how much has it changed?  Has it changed enough?  I guess it is back to my previous post, everything takes time in education…..picking up on a theme yet??!
