Changing Education Paradigms

Another fascinating short from Sir Ken Robinson. This short video explores the epidemic of ADHD, how it may be caused the use of irrelevant outdated educational models, how standardization and standardized tests may play a part in this, and what effects the large scale medication of ADHD diagnosed students negatively impacts our students is having, especially in Arts education. Also how the current education system disrupts divergent thinking and rewards standardized responses, “10 years in school learning that there is only one right answer, and it is at the back of the book”..

If you watch this pay attention to the segment beginning around 5:35 – how Arts Education can  possibly be victim of the over diagnosis and medication of ADHD, and old educational paradigms.
