Changing the Educational Paradigm

Changing the educational paradigm is a question that has left many educators puzzled. Sir Ken Robinson aims to change that through his critique of the present education system and some of the deeper problems concerning it.

I find myself agreeing with Robinson  that the problem exists with traditional teaching methods largely ignoring the multidimensionality of experience, of the subject, of phenomena and of knowledge itself. Hence only allowing a select handful of students to grasp the concepts. These children are subjected to rigid and almost indoctrinating forms of education, which do more to limit one’s scope of the world than broaden it.

I personally thought in today’s education system we should be aiming for Quality Teaching, not taking a step backwards…

We need to break the paradigm and encourage high-order thinking and reflective practice in our classrooms!
