KAPOW: Sir Ken Robinson Blows Donya's Mind

After watching Sir Ken Robinson‘s latest incarnation as the subject of an RSA Animation, Donya was compelled to commit herself to bringing about an education revolution:
I believe this is what I want to be when I grow up… if that makes any sense. I want to be a meaningful part of this education revolution! EVERYONE (not just the students in the TALONS class) possesses the skill and capacity to achieve. The current education system doesn’t promote that anymore. A lot of the students “learning” in a “run of the mill” education system are not reaping the benefits that they rightfully deserve. If technology and other aspects in our life have changed so much, why didn’t education?

  1. Hi, Bryan My name is Cassandra. I am in Dr. Strange EDM310 Class. I am majoring in Elem. Education, at the University of South Alabama, in Mobile, Alabama. This class is given me knowledge that I could use to educate my students. We should teach our students with a more realistic, real world approach. Not just give them the book value, but also life value. Like he said, I was taught and told the same thing “if you work hard, do well, and go to college, you will get a good job.” I am one of those who do not believe this to be true. When I was in grade school I did believe that to be true but as Sir Ken Robinson stated “I was educated”. Some people do not have a diploma or a degree, and own their own business. Another thing was that every child may be around the same age, but they all learn at a different pace and in a different ways.
