This is a great overview of our education system and how it’s embedded in the needs and thinking of an industrial system rather than the needs and thinking of our present and future world.
It’s a superb resource for anyone who needs to understand how and why the education system is outdated. It’s also relevant to understanding where our ideas come from and encouraging the kind of thinking that can accept diverse perspectives.
NB – The original lecture gives more information on the figures behind children losing their creativity as they go through the education system.
With reference to accepting diverse perspectives (it’s importance and how to do it) see the U.Lab MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) – Transforming Business, Society, and Self with U.Lab At time of writing enrolments are being accepted for the next course starting on September 8th 2016.
