Sir Ken Robinson on Eucation (TED Talks)
For the New Yorker, Nathan Heller complied a list of five of the most distinctive TED talks. This one is from Sir Ken Robinson. He's absolutely hilarious but makes some serious points. Here's what Heller says about Robinson: "The most popular TED talk of all time contains no slides, no props, no technology, and very little movement—a success that seems anomalous until you look closely at its argument. He "fires a shot over the bow of modern public education, suggesting that schooling is, basically, set up to guide students toward becoming university professors." The four other TED talks he lists are equally interesting, especially Jill Bolte Taylor's 2008 talk about a stroke that messed up her left hemisphere.
