“Changing Education Paradigms:” A Thought Worth Considering

By: Maria Wahlstrom (Instructional Coordinator)

Ken Robinson’s talk on Changing Education Paradigms has an excellent point for restructuring our schools. I highly recommend checking it out:

As Ken Robinson pointed out, rethinking HOW we teach is only one part of the puzzle to fixing education. I believe the other part involves questions of WHAT we teach, and HOW we empower our student to use their unique knowledge and skills to positively impact the world. Village Leadership Academy is excited to begin another school year as we continue to challenge current education paradigms and seek new ways to educate and move our students toward their fullest potential in the world.

I will leave these ideas for another blog coming soon…

  1. A thought-provoking, really excellent video that all educators,teachers and professors must see. It’ makes one re-think of how we are doing what we are doing and for what purpose.
