Quotes from Sir Ken Robinson’s 2013 TED talk

garr
garr

Ken Robinson’s talk “How to escape education's death valley” is one of my favorites. It was recorded in April of 2013. I highly recommend that you watch his latest talk on TED.com. The quotes I assembled for the talk are the one’s most salient to me personally. This is not an attempt to summarize his talk in anyway, but perhaps a quote or two will be useful for you in your own presentations related to education, etc. The slides are in PDF, but you can easily cut and paste text as you wish. You can of, course, get the entire transcript of the talk on the ted.com website (in many languages). Let’s keep the conversation regarding the education revolution going. peace - garr

Sir Ken Robinson’s talk
at TED Talks Education
“

I knew that Americans get
irony when I came across that
legislation No Child Left Behind.
Because whoever thought of that
title gets irony — because it’s
leaving millions of children behind.
— Sir Ken Robinson

”
“

There are three (3) principles on
which human life flourishes, and
they are contradicted by the
culture of education under which
most teachers have to labor and
most students have to endure.

”

— Sir Ken Robinson
(1)

Human beings
are naturally
different and
diverse.

— Sir Ken Robinson
“

If you sit kids down,
hour after hour,
doing low-grade
clerical work, don’t
be surprised if they
start to fidget.

”

— Sir Ken Robinson
“

Children are not, for the
most part, suffering
from a psychological
condition. They’re
suffering from
childhood.

”

— Sir Ken Robinson
